Bailey of Bristol to reveal all-electric Ford Transit campervan concept at the Motorhome and Caravan Show

Bailey of Bristol, one of the UK’s largest caravan and motorhome manufacturers, is unveiling an Endeavour EV concept vehicle for the first time alongside conventionally powered versions of its first panel van conversion, the Endeavour, at the Motorhome and Caravan Show (17 to 22 October, 2023).

The Endeavour EV is a fully operational panel van conversion developed in partnership with Ford Pro and is based upon the E-Transit platform. Although it is not intended for this motorhome to go into production, it does show a potential direction for leisure vehicle design in the future.

This vehicle has been developed with sustainability in mind with all services and appliances used in the Endeavour EV being fully electric, meaning no fossil fuels are required to power the motorhome when in use. Low carbon recycled materials, particularly in the work surfaces, upholstery fabrics and furniture handles, have also been used throughout its construction.

In addition, the design includes a number of exciting new features not currently seen in existing Bailey leisure vehicle ranges, including an adaptable living space with working, lounging and sleeping modes plus a voice controlled lighting system – both of which offer owners the potential to customize their vehicle.

Commenting on the Endeavour EV Concept Vehicle Managing Director Nick Howard said:

“We have really enjoyed working in partnership with Ford Pro on the Endeavor EV project. Not only has it given us the chance to build on an electric base vehicle for the first time but has also provided with the opportunity to experiment with new design concepts and materials in the living space”.

“Hopefully it will provide NEC visitors a glimpse into the future of leisure vehicle design. We look forward to receiving their feedback at the show” he added”.
