Electric RV with 370 mile range

Not a "real" motorhome just yet, but the concept surely will have further development:

“Despite facing issues at the start of its test expedition, which forced the team to transport the van via trailer for the initial stages of the journey”

Wonder what the issues were that required it to be hauled by a diesel truck?

First issue is that it was hand built by students as a one off prototype, so not bad considering that.

370 miles on a 60 kWh battery, it pretty light at under 4000 lbs, never going to be production vehicle but a neat concept.
