Launch and Early Days:
Pioneering Electric Classic Campers
In 2013, eDub embarked on a mission to redefine the classic VW camper van experience. These iconic vehicles, beloved for their charm, often came with drawbacks like slow speeds, emissions, and reliability issues. eDub's founders envisioned a brighter future.
"At eDub, our dream was simple yet revolutionary: merge classic campers with eco-consciousness. We embarked on this journey with a vision of cleaner, greener adventures," reflects Kit Lacey, Founder of eDub.
Back then, the electric vehicle (EV) movement was in its infancy. eDub set out to create enjoyable, reliable electric classic campers. This journey began with the introduction of the eDub Trips hire program, a concept that continues to thrive today.
Innovation Award 2023
eDub Conversions and Recognition
In 2018, eDub took a bold step by transitioning into full-time electric conversions. Extensive trials with methods from industry giants like Nissan and Tesla led to the pioneering of eDub's signature complete bolt-on conversion kits, incorporating the best EV technology.
However, eDub's journey was not without its share of challenges, and one of the most unforeseen was the global COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic prompted eDub to rethink and adapt its operations. The team managed to prioritise safety and push ahead with innovative work despite facing various challenges. In 2022, eDub achieved a monumental milestone by successfully converting a classic Porsche into an electric marvel. This milestone broadened the scope of eDub's conversion offerings, setting the stage for electrifying a diverse range of classic and high-performance vehicles.
eDub's relentless pursuit of innovation and sustainability received well-deserved recognition when the company was honoured with the prestigious Innovation Award at the British Independent Garage of the Year Awards 2023 (IGA). This accolade was a testament to eDub's relentless commitment to pushing the boundaries of sustainable mobility and electrification.
A Global Vision and Empowering Partnerships
As eDub marks a decade of innovation, our vision extends worldwide, centred on offering guidance, solutions, components, and conversion kits to partners across the globe embarking on their electric conversion journeys. Our commitment goes beyond conversions; we aim to empower individuals and businesses to embrace sustainable travel and even establish their own eDub hire businesses.
Founder Kit Lacey explains, "Our global vision is to support partners in electrifying classic vehicles worldwide, providing valuable advice, comprehensive solutions, and the essential components for successful conversions." eDub's mission is to make eco-conscious travel accessible on a global scale.
In the realm of partnership development, eDub offers comprehensive guides to assist partners in setting up their own eDub hire businesses. Kit emphasises, "We are dedicated to equipping partners with the knowledge and resources needed to start their own eDub ventures, amplifying the reach of the sustainability movement."
eDub's global vision and collaborative spirit reflect our commitment to enabling sustainable travel and inspiring partners worldwide to embrace eco-friendly adventures.
