OK, you are right, this is NOT about electric motorcycles (I think I need to change the website in Electric Vehicles News) but I found it very interesting to see how this company recreates an RV of the GMC motorhome from the late 70’s. In a full electric outfit! (For your information: RV stands for Recreational Vehicle).
Eoorja is a unique breed of startup venture aimed at establishing and producing electric RV’s using the new generation of EV technology which should help them significantly reduce weight of RV’s and at the same time give additional space for storage of power units as well as a way to charge batteries “on-the-go”. Eoorja produces a totally new version of a 40 yr old design. This design will bring back to the market what an RV was designed to be, a mobile vehicle that provides all the comforts of home in a Mobil platform.
When vintage meets the future
This design will use new electric power to save on operating expense and utilize all the modern technology to provide a pleasant user experience. Eoorja is attempting to give a fresh new look to offset the current bus or van technology.
The product they are producing is an RV recreation of the GMC motorhome from the late 70’s. The difference aside from the outward appearance is that these vehicles will have the first electric units on the market. It will have a number of unique upgrades to make it stand apart from the current RV’s. This product has a compact design and handles and drives like a large car.
Eoorja is playing in a multi-billion dollar market and intends to disrupt the RV market by reducing cost & complexity of the RVs while employing much superior technological innovations never seen before. eRV will mainly target the segment of “Baby Boomers” as we have witnessed explosive growth of the RV market growing from US $19 Billion to US $64 Billion in the last two years. This growth is from the boomers retiring at a rate of about 10K per week. Baby boomers have over ¾ of the money and being retired want to spend it the generation has always been about see what I have, this rv product will fit the bill.
Eoorja is seeking a funding of $3 millions out of which most will be used for completing prototype, hire procurement & engineering team and start signing deals. This gives them cushion money to fine tune different permutation and combinations, run office, personal and source suppliers.
Eoorja aims to make society and our environment more sustainable by developing the next generation of electric motors and technological innovations to accelerate the adoption of sustainable recreational transport.
It is no brainer that “Disruption in EV Manufacturing will lead to large-scale & rapid adoption”. Greater power density, more manufacturing flexibility, and lower cost for electrical motors will be necessary to make electric vehicles appealing to the masses. Rapid battery cost declines, rising commitment from major consumers, strong policy support from state and local governments, and low operational costs (including discounted charging tariffs from utilities) have put electric vehicles (EVs) on track to pass gasoline-powered vehicles. At Eoorja, they can produce RVs with all of these great features and more.
