Plug-in Hybrid campervan launched from Wellhouse Leisure


Wellhouse Leisure’s range of Ford-based campervans now includes its first plug-in hybrid model using the new Transit Custom PHEV.

The Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine delivers 125bhp of power and 355Nm of torque with automatic transmission as standard. Its electric motors enable it to travel approximately 35 miles completely emissions-free, making it perfect for daily urban use, and together with the petrol engine, provide a total range of around 300 miles.

Regenerative braking recharges the batteries while driving and, once sufficiently charged, it will automatically switch back to electric-only power. It can also be recharged by plugging in to a charge.

Because of the additional weight of the batteries, Wellhouse uses the Transit Custom 340 model, which gives an extra 200kg load capacity. The batteries do not have any impact on the interior space as they are located under the floor, so the campervan conversion is identical to its petrol-powered siblings and is available with a UK-produced elevating roof, Italian-designed furniture, and a sliding rear seat (with three seatbelts), which has been crash-tested in Germany.

Automatic transmission is standard, and as the Limited specification base vehicle is used, it features a higher standard specification, including an 8in display screen, front and rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, Quickclear heated windscreen, heated front seats, air conditioning, 16in alloy wheels, plus body-coloured bumpers, mirrors and side mouldings.

The new Misano PHEV campervan costs from £57,000 (including Government grant).
