On the eve of the first big weekend of holiday departures, the German start-up Electric Bus unveils the xBus in a motorhome version. He is accompanied by the city car Evetta.
The concept of the xBus is that of a small electric and modular utility, homologated as a quadricycle. Electric Brands has already marketed the “family” versions for a few months. Now here is a long-awaited version, the motorhome. It is one of the smallest motorhomes on the market, at less than 4 meters long and 1.69 meters wide.
This does not prevent it from offering sleeping accommodation for two people with an extension of the rear part, still uncommon, a pop-up roof with solar panels and a small kitchen area with hob, fridge and sink (water reserve sweet included).
Approved in category L7e, the xBus has 4 motors built into the wheels for a total power of 15 kW. The maximum speed is announced at 100 km/h and the battery can reach 30 kWh depending on the modules installed. At launch, the manufacturer mentioned a maximum range of 600 km. The motorhome is probably at the top of the list of registered reservations. It is displayed at €29,727.13 on the site, or €31,946.22 in the “all-terrain” version.

Artega Karo became Evetta
Beyond this long-awaited motorhome variant, Electric Bus is solidifying its takeover of Artega by presenting the Evetta. This is the ex-Artega Karo, itself a clone of the Swiss Microlino. And so, it too is an evocation of the Isetta whose name is cleverly transformed. The reservations should start in July for deliveries before the end of the year. It is 2.48 m long and 1.50 m wide. Its autonomy is announced at 200 km and it too is approved as a quadricycle, with an official maximum speed of 90 km/h.
Electric Brands shows in passing a utility version of the Evetta equipped with an elongated chassis at the rear which allows a loading module to be carried. A convertible is also considered.
