How far does an electric VW camper travel?

One of our frequent questions is about range of our electric classic campers. 

What is the mile/kWh ratio for converted campers?

Discover the electric classic camper's range - how far you can go on a single charge. This is a crucial question for any adventurer looking to hit the road without worrying about running out of power. So, what is the range of the camper van?

As an electric vehicle enthusiast, you may have stumbled upon the varying ranges advertised on consumer websites. However, the calculation methods for these ranges can be quite perplexing. Some are based on best-case scenarios, while others are derived from rolling road statistics. At eDub Services, we believe in the importance of real-world testing and opt for this method to provide the most accurate and reliable range information.

We have conducted real-world testing that combines motorway driving with back lane driving over hills to provide you with an estimated range for our conversions. While we can offer statistics on battery pack size, the physical size of the vehicle dictates the capacity and range of the battery pack. For instance, we cannot fit a large number of batteries inside smaller vehicles like the Mini, Fiat 500, or Beetle. Consequently, the capacity and range will be limited. However, larger vehicles can accommodate more batteries, resulting in a larger capacity and range.

Another important regulation we must adhere to is the payload capacity of our vehicles. Each chassis is designed to support a specific weight limit, and exceeding it could lead to dangerous and illegal situations - which we definitely want to avoid! As a result, we face restrictions when it comes to accommodating batteries, which not only require ample space but also contribute significantly to the overall weight.

Our electric VW Camper vans come in a range of pack sizes to suit your needs. Our smallest pack size, with around 37 kWh of battery capacity, will give you a 100-mile range - and with 2.6 miles to the kWh, you can be sure you're getting the most out of your vehicle. Our 62 kWh battery pack offers even more range, with a real-world number of 166 miles. So whether you're planning a weekend getaway or a longer road trip, we've got you covered.

We like to give our customers a fair expectation of our vehicle's battery life. Instead of claiming a 200-mile range, we run the batteries down to about 10 percent, which is a more realistic estimation of their capabilities. We believe in complete honesty and transparency so that you can plan your trips with confidence and without any surprises.

This sheds light on the range of these vehicles and how it operates. If you have any further inquiries, please don't hesitate to get in touch. You may do so by clicking on the 'contact us' link on our website or by calling 01423 421 950. Don't forget to check out our top-notch website at
