SylvanSport & Zeus Electric Chassis Collaborate on All-Electric RV Line
Minneapolis, MN (September 1, 2021) – Zeus Electric Chassis, Inc. (Zeus), a fully configurable class 4-6 electric work truck chassis manufacturer, is proud to announce their agreement with SylvanSport, an innovative producer of award-winning adventure trailers, outdoor gear and camping accessories, to redefine habitat and mobility in the Recreational Vehicle (RV) industry with an electric RV motorhome.
The Zeus Electric Chassis can be configured to a broad range of applications with minimal customization. Zeus has prioritized the vocational work truck market, but significant opportunities exist for vehicle electrification across other niche markets, including motorized recreational vehicles. The collaboration with SylvanSport marks the next potential strategic market niche within the broader markets that Zeus is targeting. RV owners and customers, with their love of the outdoors and concerns regarding climate change, present a fresh market with long-term growth potential for the Zeus chassis.
Zeus and SylvanSport have teamed up with a vision to generate a great leap forward in the RV industry, illustrating the possibilities for innovative, earth-friendly designs that enable outdoor adventure in a sustainable way. By designing electric RVs with more efficient use of power, water and other resources from the ground up, the companies intend to make off-grid camping, or “boondocking” more accessible in the future.
“SylvanSport has made a name for itself by creating innovative products for outdoor adventurers, including smartly designed, multi-purpose trailers. The Zeus chassis platform was designed to go anywhere, anytime and be the perfect leading edge for on or off grid, making us a perfect team in this endeavor,” said Robert Grinstead, Founder/CTO of Zeus Electric Chassis.
The collaboration will help to establish a pathway for progress on design innovation to develop products that will enhance the outdoor adventure experience, affording RV users the ability to enjoy the outdoors while minimizing their impact on the environment. This vision will include new technologies to reduce RV emissions, eliminate waste, provide clean sustainable water and enable consumers to sustain the pristine vistas that endear them to the outdoors.
“From the inception of SylvanSport in 2004 we knew the pinnacle of our achievement would be the creation of a class-leading, all-electric motorhome,” says Tom Dempsey, Founder & CEO of SylvanSport. “Zeus technology has allowed us to achieve this in the most forward-thinking, environmentally clean way. What a phenomenal team!”
The companies plan to collaborate on new product concepts to realize their shared vision of a more sustainable outdoor adventure experience throughout 2021 and 2022. For a sneak peak at some of the initial visionary design concepts please visit: https://www.sylvansport.com/leading-the-charge/.
