Winnebago Shows Off Concept Electric RV

Forest City, Iowa — Forest City-based Winnebago Industries has unveiled a concept motorhome that is electrically powered.

Winnebago’s director of advanced technology, Jaime Sorenson, says the battery configuration will meet the needs of a majority of new RV buyers who prefer to make trips under 200 miles.

He says a user will notice several differences right away when compared to the traditional motorhome.

Winnebago’s vice president of advanced technology, Shailendra Singh says this is a brand new design, and the electric vehicle is built on a van chassis.

He says the experience will be better with all the appliances because the high voltage makes them more efficient, and all of the system controls are integrated. Singh says it is a concept vehicle and they have several things to work on before it will be available to customers.

Sorenson says they aren’t sure yet what the electric RV will cost.

Winnebago made the announcement at the Florida RV Super Show currently going on in Tampa.
