The giant auto-manufacturing company Zeus Electric Chassis and an outdoor segment company SylvanSport have combined effort to manufacture a recreational vehicle with an interior resemblance of a house. Zeus Electric Chassis is a fully configurable class 3-8 electric work truck chassis manufacturer, And SylvanSport is a well known name in the outdoor segment industries. SylvanSport have wide range of adventure trailers, outdoor gear, and camping accessories. The two companies are combining effort to bring an innovative all-electric off-road adventure RV to the competitive market.
The newly announced team-up should put Zeus and SylvanSport on the map of pioneers of all-electric RVing, and it could also launch the market’s first all-electric all-terrain Class B+/C RV, an immediate, pure-battery competitor to products like the Winnebago Ekko. In an initial batch of basic specifications, SylvanSport details a 25-foot (7.6-m)-long all-wheel-drive RV that rides on military-grade axles and independent front and rear suspension. It will be powered by a 290-hp layout of liquid-cooled permanent-magnet electric motors wired to enough battery for up to 400 miles (644 km) of driving range.
SylvanSport envisions a new line of all-electric off-road adventure RVs, currently code-named “Leading the Charge,” with new technologies to eliminate emissions, reduce waste, provide water recycling solutions, and more. As the project is still in its beginning stages, full details about the innovative RV are not yet available, but what is known so far sounds exciting.
According to Robert Grinstead, Founder/CTO of Zeus Electric Chassis. “SylvanSport has made a name for itself by creating innovative products for outdoor adventurers, including smartly designed, multi-purpose trailers. The Zeus chassis platform was designed to go anywhere, anytime and be the perfect leading edge for on or off-grid, making us a perfect team in this endeavor,”.
In terms of construction and design, it counts on light composite materials and is available in two color options: green and gray. The renderings show that it is going to include several unique features, such as an exterior table, a rear ladder, and enough room for two boats to be attached to the exterior side.
Through the collaboration with SylvanSport, Zeus Electric Chassislook is currently working on bringing its powerful electric RV motorhome to life, due to be launched in 2022.
