Winnebago launches an all-electric RV

FOREST CITY, Iowa — The push for increasing efficiency and green technology in the auto industry shows no signs of slowing, and now the RV industry is getting into the game. Winnebago Industries has announced the launch of an all-electric chassis that would emit zero emissions, reported Curbed.

Winnebago plans to release the electric RV in the commercial vehicle market, aimed at mobile classrooms, blood clinics, and other on-the-go service vehicles. The vehicle will be available in 33-foot and 38-foot lengths and with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) up to 26,000 pounds. It will also come with plenty of amenities, like slide rooms, air-conditioning, solar panels, inverters, toilets, showers, and plumbing.

Unfortunately this all-electric RV won’t be available as a camper or motorhome to the public because of its limited range. According to the company, tests show that their electric vehicle can use six to eight batteries for a range of between 85 to 125 miles on a full charge.
