Over the past decade, electric vehicles (EVs) have entered the mainstream. Companies like Tesla, Rivian, Ford, General Motors, and others have proven that EVs can actually outperform gas-powered vehicles and provide a vastly better experience for drivers while reducing environmental impact.
Despite the success of EVs, we are only beginning to see the electrification of the most popular vehicle segments in the U.S. – trucks and SUVs. With over 650,000 vehicles sold, the Ford F-Series was the No. 1 selling vehicle in the U.S. in 2022.
Meanwhile, recreational vehicles (RVs) have grown massively in popularity with 1 in 10 families owning an RV today. Over 90% of RVs sold are towable, and are themselves significant contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. To make matters worse, RVs are quite literally dragging down the progress of electrification of the vehicles that tow them – namely the trucks and SUVs that dominate vehicle sales in the U.S.
Lightship is reimagining the RV and camping experience to enable the next wave of electrification and provide a delightful outdoor travel experience for all.
Here are some reasons why you should consider an electric RV.
