RVshare, Grounded to Launch Electric RV Rental Program

RVshare's electric recreational vehicle rental program will debut in the Detroit market.

RVshare, a community for RV owners and renters, debuted a new partnership with electric RV startup, Grounded, to bring an electric recreational vehicle rental program to the Detroit market. These rentals are available exclusively on RVshare, making Grounded RVs the first electric vehicle fleet on the platform.

This program, which is also supported by the Michigan Office for Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME), will provide sustainable travel options for travelers via a fleet of E-RVs available for daily hire. Renters will also be able to provide firsthand feedback that will help refine and improve future iterations of the E-RV program and product development, RVshare said.

Grounded said its “G1 models” are built with zero-emissions technology, fulfilling broader sustainability goals that align with the mission of the OFME, and for an affordable cost. All three G1 electric camper vans will be available exclusively on RVshare starting at $199 for a 24-hour period.

“The partnership between RVshare and Grounded marks a significant step in RV innovation,” says RVshare’s CEO Jon Gray. “It is exciting to give customers access to the very first fleet of electric recreational vehicles to rent for a weekend of camping or a Big 10 tailgate. We look forward to seeing how interested parties test drive these units.”

Tips For Lifting HEVs and BEVs

If you can’t lift a vehicle without damage, you will not be able to unlock this service opportunity in this growing segment.

Most HEV and EV vehicle repairs are not those done to battery packs or electric motors. Instead, the most significant repair opportunities are tires, brakes, and suspension. And if you can’t lift a vehicle without damage, you will not be able to unlock this service opportunity in this growing segment. The stakes are higher for EVs and hybrids because if a lift arm or adapter is not correctly placed, it could damage an expensive battery pack mounted under the vehicle. Some of these battery packs can cost five figures to replace. Also, there is a fire hazard. If a battery pack is impacted or punctured, never guess where or how to pick up a vehicle. A vehicle’s owner’s manual or service manual often will provide guidance on where to find and how to access the appropriate jacking and lifting points. Some EVs and HVS have specific lift points stamped into the unibody.
