EarthCruiser announced its expansion into overlanding products specifically for electric vehicles.
The news follows the official launch of a pre-order deposit program for slide-in campers engineered for the next generation of electric vehicles (EV) trucks.
EarthCruiser has over fifteen years of experience building light, aerodynamic overlanding products designed to be efficient and capable and work off-grid for extended use.
Shifting to EV
With the knowledge of complex energy systems, weight distribution, and aerodynamics, EarthCruiser can apply and develop new approaches and designs to pave the way for electric vehicles in the overlanding sphere.
In a press release, EarthCruiser said it has anticipated and discussed entering this space for years.
EarthCruiser aims to take advantage of the growing industry stats and new government regulations demonstrate the momentum EV has with automakers and consumers.
“We have been keenly following the evolution of EV vehicles and have been waiting until the time is right and the time is now. We are a company that loves to discover, innovate, and test, over and over until we get it right. Our deep expertise in building world-renowned expedition vehicles makes it easier for us to roll into electric platforms compared to competitors,” said Lance Gillies, founder of EarthCruiser.
Possibility for Commercial Fleets?
In the press release, EarthCruiser wants to partner with domestic automobile manufacturers that want to maximize overland vehicle efficiency and ensure critical systems fit within a limited footprint and usage envelope.
Work Truck asked EarthCruiser if there is any future for its products to become commercially available. They declined to comment on the future, but Work Truck is left wondering if commercial vehicles have something to look forward to.
