The Maxwell Vanacea EV camper van arrives in the U.S.
Los Angeles based company Maxwell Vehicles is now selling the Maxwell Vanacea EV camper van, another option in the EV van market that’s aimed at eco-friendly consumers.
Replacing the ICE power train from the Ram ProMaster, Maxwell has replaced it with an ePro 300 electric motor that pumps out 300 horses. The 74-kWh battery pack, or 125-kWh if you desire, is located beneath the vehicle’s floor. Both receive a boost from the solar panels mounted on the vehicle’s roof and are linked to the van’s front-mounted motor.
The bigger battery enables drivers to go 250 miles on a single charge, while the smaller battery has an estimated range of 170 miles. The longer-range battery has the greatest range of any electric camper van currently on the market in the United States.
Roughly 8.5 kWh of useful energy is produced by the solar panels each day, which equates to roughly 20 miles each day. The Maxwell Vanacea EV camper van can also use 200-kW rapid charging, gaining sufficient mileage within a 30 minute charge. It may also be charged at a considerably slower pace using a standard RV hookup.
The Vanacea’s battery operates every piece of onboard technology when it’s at camp, including the heating, air conditioning, and instant hot water. A 7,800-W inverter is used to provide AC power. The electrical equipment is monitored and controlled via a 10-inch touchscreen, and a mobile app enables access while on the road.
At $193,000 the Maxwell Vanacea EV camper van comes with the E.Nook interior package that includes a convertible double bed/sofa behind the front seats, a galley with induction stove top, and a full bathroom and shower. For more information on the EV camper, check out the Maxwell website here.
