The pricey all-electric RV comes from two former Tesla employees.
Lightship is the brainchild of two former Tesla employees, Ben Parker and Toby Kraus, who were set on changing up the RV market with an EV design.
It may feel like you’re glamping in the L1, but Lightship lets you tackle backcountry camping, too. The L1’s battery system can give you a week of off-grid power, but you can also squeeze some extra charge out of the solar panels that provide 3 kW of power.
RVs were never cheap, so don’t expect any difference with the L1. It starts at $125,000, but Lightship says federal tax credits can bring it down to $118,400. Lightship is expecting to start production in late 2024, but you can already reserve your L1 for $500.
