Erwin Hymer Group undertakes first tests of an electrically-powered caravan

With electric vehicles becoming ever more popular, the Erwin Hymer Group’s Dethleffs brand brand is already performing its first test rounds with a prototype of an electrically-powered caravan.

The opportunities for caravanning fans are huge – from self-sufficient camping without shore power to reduced CO2 emissions and greater safety on the road. At the same time, there are many challenges that arise with electrically-powered caravans. For example, every kilowatt-hour not only eats up valuable space, but also increases the overall vehicle weight, which is an important factor in RV design.

Dr. Rüdiger Freimann, Head of Research and Development at Erwin Hymer Group, discusses the advantages, hurdles and special features of zero-emission trailers for the camping industry In the German “smarter E podcast,” with Markus Emmert from the German eMobility Association and host Tobias Bücklein.
