The camper fever is unstoppable as is the trend towards the electrification of the car. Both universes come together thanks to the alliance between Camperfixx and VDL Bus Venlo, two Dutch companies that join forces to launch a electric camper van baptized as e-Fixxter.
This e-Fixxter is based on the PSA Group’s zero emission commercial, now Stellantis after its merger with FCA. That is, the newcomers Peugeot e-Expert, Citroën ë-Jumpy, Opel Vivaro-e and her first cousin, Toyota Proace Electric, fruit of the collaboration between the Japanese firm and the automotive giant.
The person in charge of carrying out the conversions of these electric vans will be VDL Bus Venlo, while Camperfixx will market them, being intended for both the Dutch market and Europe in general.
These two Dutch companies are not the only ones that have entered the zero-emission camper world. For example the British firm Wellhouse Leisure camperiza precisely the Opel Vivaro, which includes the electric variant of the lightning industrial, while Nissan has also done the same with the Nissan e-NV200.
Up to 300 km of autonomy and everything you need to enjoy a home surrounded by nature
All these vans share an electric platform, the protagonist being a electric thruster that yields 100 kW (136 CV) y 260 Nm of pair. They also offer two battery options, 50 kWh and 75 kWh, and it will be the latter that will equip your camper conversions, as VDL Bus Venlo announces some 300 km of autonomy.
And it is that with the 75 kWh battery these zero-emission industrialists homologate up to 330 km, which is slightly reduced by the extra weight that the conversion brings, set according to the firm at 250 kilos.
Two will be the versions that will be offered of these camper vans in eco code: the e-Fixer, based on versions of medium body (4.95 m) and the e-Fixxter XXL, which converts those with a long body (5.30 m) into a house on wheels. Both can accommodate four or five occupants.
The conversion includes the usual ingredients, with a 135 cm wide ceiling bed, which can be increased to a maximum of 150 cm if required by the customer.
It also has kitchen, with two gas hobs and a stainless steel sink that sit on a cabinet with wardrobe and fridge, a removable table and several cabinets distributed on the side. The rear seats can also be converted into a bed. Also, as usual the front seats can be rotated to create a dining / living room.
VDL Bus Venlo ensures that these conversions have made the most of the available space in the cargo area that becomes habitable in these vans. In fact, they promise that you can also incorporate other elements such as a chemical toilet.
The first units of These electric camper vans will be conceived this yearIn fact, VDL Bus Venlo announces that they will deliver about 30 units in 2020 only for the Dutch market. But it will not be the only one, since for example they have already obtained the homologation for Belgium and it is understood that they will be expanding to other countries.
As for the price, the conversion is around the 21.000 euros, although they also offer what is necessary for you to carry out the conversion yourself with a kit that costs about 15,000 euros. And to this we must add the price of each of these electric vans.
