Lightning eMotors has been named as the powertrain provider for an all-electric motorhome concept under development by Winnebago Industries, Inc. Winnebago Industries revealed a concept motorhome developed by the company’s Advanced Technology Group (ATG) at the Florida RV Super Show. The all-electric e-RV includes an electric powertrain system developed, integrated and installed by Lightning eMotors.
“We agree with Winnebago Industries’ view that there is a significant opportunity for shorter-range electric RVs—day trippers to the beach, family sports days, and tailgaters, to name a few,” said Kash Sethi, chief revenue officer of Lightning eMotors. “Plus, these vehicles can fast charge at public charging stations and can overnight charge at campgrounds, enabling longer-range applications.”
The e-RV includes an integrated control system that enables operation of the vehicle’s subsystems and displays system information and controls on a digital display.
