Scottish firm CampervanCo has launched a new multi-purpose electric camper based on the Toyota Proace van.
The Proace Eco Revolution has been developed by CampervanCo using Toyota’s commercial van as a base. The firm has turned the regular Proace EV into a four-seat camper with a full kitchen. But the design is modular, so the kitchen and beds can be removing, turning it into a seven-seat MPV.

The machine retains the drivetrain of the regular Proace EV, so there’s a 100kW motor and a choice of 50 and 75kWh batteries, offering a range of 144 and 205 miles respectively. The firm says that the Proace’s battery could run the appliances in the machine for around two weeks.
CampervanCo’s conversion includes a pop-up roof that creates space for a two-berth bed, and there’s also 930 watts of solar panels. Those can be used to power kitchen items including the induction hob, fridge, lights and heater.
The Toyota Proace Eco Revolution is priced from £69,995 and is available to pre-order now. It will be shown in public at the Camping, Caravan and Motorhome show at the Birmingham NEC later this month.
CampervanCo offers independent conversions of a range of vehicles, and since 2016 has offered a range of hybrid ‘Eco’ models.
The Proace Eco Revolution is one of the first electric camper to go on sale in the UK – but the market is set to grow rapidly in recent years with an influx of offerings from manufacturers and other third-party firms.
