Who’d have thought that the world’s first all-electric campervan would be launched in our lifetime? Electric and hybrid cars have gained traction slowly, so the debut of the Hillside Dalbury E micro-camper at last autumn’s 
NEC show was surprising. The motorhome industry could have been expected to bring a hybrid camper to market first, as this technology is better established, so hats off to Derby’s Hillside Leisure for doing it first and going all-electric. 

The Dalbury E is based on the Nissan e-NV200 Combi mini van, and follows the 2014 launch of the diesel-engined Dalbury, which is based on the NV200. 

Hillside views the Dalbury E as a car that can be used as an occasional camper.
