Don’t you wish you had an electric truck that you could transform into anything at any time with the arrival of electric trucks? (I didn’t say Transformer-like truck) And while the majority of automakers have unveiled their own variations of modular platforms for EVs, none, with the exception of German EletricBrands and its Xbus, have unveiled a platform that can be switched out at will.
The Xbus Modular Camper electric truck, which was introduced last year, includes a base platform and a number of versions for clients to select from. One of its variations is a camper that is up to 1,990 millimeters (6.5 feet) tall, 1,690 millimeters wide, and 3,945 millimeters (12.9 feet) long.
Despite the size, the Xbus compact motorhome can sleep two people, while also offering amenities like a space-saving kitchen with a sink, a refrigerator, a hotplate stove, a TV, and a freshwater tank. More importantly, the camper comes with a solar roof for its three modules, generating up to 800 watts of electricity per hour.
As for the batteries, the Xbus offers a standard 10 kWh battery capacity with an approximate 124 miles (200 kilometers) of range. You have an option to add up to 30 kWh more for additional juice for a further 373 mi (600 km) of travel.
Xbus buyers also have a choice between standard and off-road variants to make sure that your modular camper will suit your taste and needs. The electronically controlled all-wheel drivetrain features recuperating electric motors with an output of more than 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-meters) of torque.
The Xbus base model starts at 17,526.05 sterling pounds or around $21,000. The Xbus camper, on the other hand, has a starting sticker price of £29,727.73 (~$35,760). The company says customer deliveries will commence in 2023.
