EarthCruiser Expands Product Line for Overlanding EV Market

BEND, Ore. – EarthCruiser, a globally recognized brand behind the most accomplished 4×4 expedition vehicles available in the world, announced its expansion into overlanding products specifically for electric vehicles. This includes the official launch of a pre-order deposit program for slide-in campers engineered for the next generation of EV trucks, according to a release.

EarthCruiser has a proven track record of over fifteen years of building light, aerodynamic overlanding products designed to be efficient and capable and work off-grid for extended use. This requires deep knowledge of complex energy systems, weight distribution and aerodynamics. EarthCruiser is taking this unparalleled expertise and applying it to develop new approaches and designs to pave the way for electric vehicles in the overlanding sphere.

The shift to EVs is a certainty EarthCruiser has seen coming and been talking about for years. Industry stats and new government regulations demonstrate the momentum EV has with automakers and consumers. EarthCruiser is uniquely positioned to design products that excel within EV parameters

“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.

Domestic automobile manufacturers need an overlanding partner who can advise on how to operate an overlanding vehicle efficiently and optimize energy out of the available footprint. Electric vehicles open a new world of possibility with impressive features that offer a quiet and smooth ride with reliable and breathtaking power and unbelievable off-road capabilities.

EarthCruiser’s innovation division, ECI (EarthCruiser Innovations), is currently developing products for the electrification of overlanding, including the slide-in truck camper for domestic EV trucks. EarthCruiser Innovation is currently in collaboration with key domestic automotive manufacturers and looks forward to expanding that division of the company. Further details to be announced at future dates in 2023.

“There are many similarities with our current EarthCruiser habitat and one that would be required to function with an electric platform. It’s critical to maximize efficiency in order to allow vehicles to go further. Managing limited storable on-board energy capacity, operating within acceptable range envelope and staying safe and comfortable is the essence of an overlanding vehicle and we have been doing that for years. EarthCruiser is extremely good at energy efficiency and the amount of energy required to move an EC down a road is significantly less than our competitors,” added Lance Gillies.
