Electric getaway & video! The largest expense in mobility in usually fuel cost and maintenance. Eliminate or reduce both and it becomes a Green getaway!
My brother Ed and I have enjoyed electric cars since age 12 at the Twin Flags racing joint, love motor homes, RV's, boats and life so when he sent this to me, it was like a great older brother does for his younger brother, provide the heads-up on what's coming down the road! Here is the video
Says John Neff at M-1, "An electric RV based on the Tesla semi with 500 miles of range would make an amazing motor home." and continues. Tesla is coming up with new electric vehicles all the time to expand its portfolio. We think the world's first long-range, all-electric motorhome makes perfect sense for the brand's product pipeline."
Tesla already has a great platform on which to build an electric RV: the Semi. The Tesla Semi, unveiled last year, is meant to replace the many diesel-powered tractor trailers moving freight to on our nation's highways. Because of the need to pull a massive amount of weight, the Semi has enough power and range to carry a tiny house on its back without breaking a sweat.
Let's look at the specs. The Semi will have a manufacturer-claimed maximum tow weight of 80,000 pounds, which means it's plenty stout enough to add the weight of mobile home over its rear axles. It's also available with either 300 or 500 miles of range, depending on the size of the battery pack. Those range estimates include towing a trailer, so they'd be even greater for an RV, which would presumably be lighter than the Semi with a loaded trailer.
However, there are alternatives available now!
