The Dethleffs Globevan is the first in a new generation of electrically powered motorhomes. Its e.Hybrid drive combines locally emission-free driving with a range suitable for travel. Thanks to its compact dimensions and convenient features, the vehicle is suitable for daily use and adventures all in one. Whether you’re doing an outdoor activity or going on a weekend trip or holiday on the road, the Globevan offers you all the freedom you need.

The first motorhome suitable for series production with the
Ford e.Hybrid drive.

With the power of two energy sources.

The Globevan e.Hybrid is powered by an electric engine that feeds a 13.6 kWh battery with energy. This enables an all-electric, and therefore emission-free, range of up to 50 km. In order to keep the vehicle in motion during the journey, an energy-efficient 1.0 l EcoBoost petrol engine acts as a range extender and continuously charges the battery while on the road. The combination of the electric and combustion engines reaches 355 Nm torque and 92 kW (126 HP) power.

The battery can also be charged using an external power source. It takes 3 hours to charge (to 100%) at rapid charging stations or 5.5 hours from household plug sockets.

You can’t spell ‘easy’ without ‘e’

The Ford e.Hybrid drive in the Dethleffs Globevan combines locally emission-free driving with a range suitable for travelling. The drive is all-electric. The economical 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine is used solely as a range extender: It charges the high-voltage lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery while the vehicle is in motion. There is a choice of four electric drive modes for efficient driving in all situations.

Plug-in hybrid (PHEV)

Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) can be charged via an external power source. The larger capacity (13.6 kWh) of the liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery enables purely electrically powered driving for up to 50 km without generating local emissions (model dependent).

Plug-in hybrid vehicles enable emission-free driving locally, without the driver having to worry about the range. In an ideal situation, plug-in hybrid vehicles would be regularly charged using a source of electricity. This can be done at a charging point when on the road or using a wallbox or a conventional plug socket at home or at work.

To ensure mobility at all times, the award-winning 1.0 l EcoBoost petrol engine acts as a range extender and supplies the electric engine with electricity on the road as required. This is necessary as the wheels are solely powered by the electric engine.

The combination of the electric and combustion engine reaches 355 Nm torque and 92 kW (126 HP) power in the Ford Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid and Ford Tourneo Custom Plug-in Hybrid.

In order to be as efficient as possible to drive, the Ford Transit Custom and Ford Tourneo Custom Plug-in Hybrid feature four electric drive modes, enabling the driver to decide which energy source to use based on their situation:

  • EV Auto (standard mode): The vehicle autonomously decides whether to use the combustion engine to charge the battery
  • EV Now: The vehicle can be driven on electric power alone, without the use of the combustion engine.
  • EV Later: The vehicle maintains the current battery level.
  • EV Charge: The vehicle is powered using the range extender until the battery is 70% charged
