Electric vehicles are taking over the roads and in the near future every class of vehicle will be available on electricity. From light to heavy, passing through the transport of people, to commodity, brands are hard at work preparing the transition. We say this emphatically because even the most unusual proposals are already thinking about electrical efficiency. A luxury case is the XBUS Camper motorhome.

This offer is for a super efficient electric mini caravan for 2 people. Relax in nature with maximum comfort.

XBUS: a mini caravan that does not harm the environment and your comfort

The proposal is based on some sustainability criteria. One small car with solar panels and it can accommodate two people. Thus, the camper version of the XBUS will have a length of 3.95 m, the minivan offers space for the comfort of passengers.

One retractable cab at the rear creates a 130 x 210 cm sleeper. There is also a mobile kitchen unit on board, which can be used outside the vehicle if necessary, as well as TV, refrigerator, fresh water tank and sink.

In a fully equipped version the price of the XBUS Camper with convertible roof should be around 30,170 euros.. At present, the prototype machine is still in early production at the German firm based in Rossbach. The first models are expected to reach customers in 2024.

The camping version is equipped with four electrically controlled wheel motors that together deliver up to 56 kW (76 hp) at full power for a top speed of 100 km/h.

Converting solar energy into electrical energy

The battery in the basic version has a capacity of 15 kWh and can be increased up to 45 kWh with additional battery packs. Depending on the battery configuration, range must be between 200 and 600 km. Charging takes three to five hours from a standard 220V outlet, or correspondingly faster from an 11kW charger.

Like other XBUS variants, the XBUS Camper is available in both standard and off-road chassis versions with increased ground clearance. A 5 m² photovoltaic panel is installed on the roof. Under optimal conditions, a vehicle should be able to generate an additional range of 30 to 50 km per day from solar energy on average per year.

This technology is especially relevant for camping in sunny regions. Thanks to car charging technology, campers can also use their own solar power from the car's own 220-volt socket.

With a curb weight between 500 and 800 kg, depending on equipment, the XBUS belongs to the category of light electric vehicles. In the future, XBUS customers will be able to choose from nine options. Whether it's a pickup truck, van, bus or motorhome, they all take a modular approach.

Faced with increasing traffic congestion, we need smart, versatile and sustainable concepts that enable individual mobility and adapt to personal lifestyles: sustainable, modular and affordable. That's where we come in with XBUS.

Said Ralph Haller, founder of the company.

Modular to adapt to any type of offer

The modular principle can be a big advantage of this proposal. For example, with just two modules, a van can be temporarily converted into a motorhome for the next vacation.

Approximately 270 dealers in Germany and more than 800 in Europe make this quick and easy conversion possible. It is also planned to rent modules.

Company policy regarding XBUS, ElectricityBrandsthis concept and product is based on environmentally friendly production methods and short delivery routes, as well as the use of cobalt-free batteries.

Our goal is to be able to reuse as many individual parts as possible. We achieve this by using unblended materials and components, which are generally 100% recyclable. Green from start to finish, that's what the global concept is for.

concluded Ralph Haller.

Portugal is already included in the list of countries that will be able to get this car.

The first Dacia hybrid.  "The cheapest hybrid family on the market"

BUT Dacia revealed this Monday that the hybrid engine has been available since March on the Jogger, the Romanian brand’s model known to be available with a seven-seat variant.

The Jogger Hybrid 140, Dacia’s first hybrid, will hit dealerships in March, but customers can expect and order it as early as January.

The price has been revealed by Dacia and since it’s only available in the seven-seater SL Extreme, it starts at €28,800. The brand claims it is “the most affordable hybrid family car on the market.”

Available in six existing colors to celebrate the launch of this hybrid, there will be a slate gray version, as you can see in the images above.

Equipped with a 1.6 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 90 hp, the Jogger is also powered by two electric motors (a 50 hp engine and a high-voltage starter-generator). The total power is 140 horsepower. The electric transmission is automatic, four-speed, connected to an internal combustion engine, and two speeds are connected to an electric motor. This combined technology was possible, according to Dacia, only due to the lack of clutch.
