Iridium presents electric RV with increased range

Eight months after its world premiere at the Stuttgart travel trade fair CMT, the Iridium brand will present the second generation of its motorhomes with all-electric drives at the Caravan Salon Düsseldorf from 31 August to 8 September.

With the help of drive specialist EFA-S, it has become possible to increase the range of the vehicles by more than 30 per cent to around 400 kilometres, according to Thomas Gräter, Managing Director of WOF GmbH, the company behind the Iridium brand. “We will start our second generation with a limited edition of 30 vehicles that can be ordered at the Iridium stand at the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon. Deliveries are to start in the first quarter of 2020 so that the vehicles can already be used in the coming camper season.”

Special technology with ceramic separators will be used in the battery. The capacity of the electricity storage system is given by WOF as 108 kWh, the range is to be 400 kilometres. The batteries can be charged on type 2 chargers with 22 kW alternating current or by direct current via the CCS connection. The current charging capacity is 50 kW, which is to be increased to 100 kW in the future. The camper is powered by a 150 kW synchronous motor with a torque of up to 730 Newton metres. Further vehicle data will be announced at the trade fair.

There, the second generation of the electric motorhome will be on display at Stand B66 in Hall 12. In front of the exhibition grounds, test drives are possible in a registered and ready to drive motorhome – by appointment only. However, this is still a first-generation vehicle.

At its premiere in Stuttgart, WOF GmbH, based in Baden-Württemberg, announced that it would develop Iridium into the first motorhome brand to offer exclusively electric motorhomes. Until now, Iridium was regarded as the brand for high-quality premium motorhomes.
