Swift’s motorhome range for 2021 is revealed

After record sales since June, Swift has seen a 70% growth in motorhome registrations and is reporting dealer stock levels at a historic low.

After a long period of lockdown closure, its factory is back up and running and now it has unveiled its new, rationalised range for 2021, with mainly cosmetic updates across the portfolio.

Starting with its Select van conversion range, all five models get a new graphics scheme and metallic Iron Grey paintwork as standard, or Deep Red as a no-cost alternative. All Select campervans have an overcab sunroof, which was added to the spec last year.

The entry-level Edge coachbuilts, which debuted last summer, are reported to have had “a highly successful first season” and go into 2021 with a switch to Aralie Sen woodgrain, the addition of four-sided cassette blinds and a significant update to their specification, with the previous Drivers Pack and Living Pack now fitted as standard.

All models therefore gain a digital microwave, removable carpets, door flyscreen, TV aerial, cruise control, DAB radio, heated mirrors and reversing sensors. The Black Edition Pack remains optional, at an extra £995.

The compact, two-berth Edge 412 has been dropped from the range but a new family layout – the 466 – with rear transverse bunk beds (the lower one lifting to create a garage) is the most important arrival from Swift at this juncture. The Edge 466 will be available from February 2021, priced at £51,665.

The popular Escape and Escape Compact (pictured below) go into 2021 refreshed with new graphics and enhanced spec. Their Fiat cabs gain cruise control, a pleated windscreen blind, reversing sensors and a rear view camera, while habitation areas get carpets, a microwave, a flyscreen for the door and a Winter Pack as standard.

Swift Escape Compact

As with the Edge range, all models are available with a 3,500kg gross weight. The rear lounge Escape Compact C402 is no longer included in the range (although the similar C404 with drop-down bed continues) and two classic Escape layouts – the end kitchen 612 and rear lounge 622 – are discontinued.

The Kon-tiki Sport also sees a reduced range. The remaining 11 layouts continue with the addition of external gas, power and shower points, plus reversing sensors.

Swift prices are rising by 2.5% or 3%, depending on model, except for the flagship Kon-tiki, which stays at 2020 figures.
