While electric cars have become a more common sight on our roads, there is still some way to go before we step away entirely from fossil-based fuels. The change to electric power is well underway, but there are still some categories of road transportation that are missing out, including the motor home segment. That’s until recently.

We’ve already seen some electric vans, such as the Nissan e-NV200 and more recently the Mercedes eSprinter, but neither are dedicated camper vans. Various conversions have taken place, and even the one-off electrification of some camper vans, but Germany is home to the world’s first fully-electric purpose-built RV, the Iridium E-Mobil 70EB.

The original model debuted in early 2019 at a German trade show, a mere hint at what the companies were capable of creating when working together. It’s a shame, then, that its range is just 124 miles. The latest offering doubles this, promising more than 249 miles on a single charge. This comes with the transition from an 86.4 kWh battery pack to a 108 kWh offering. That’s double the range on a 30% battery capacity boost, thanks in part to more efficient technology.
