New EV Breakthrough: Zero Emission Lung Clinic

What could be more ironic than enticing small children to gather around your ice cream truck to breathe in lungfuls of diesel exhaust? Clustering people around a mobile lung clinic comes in close second, but it looks like the iconic RV company Winnebago has a solution for that, with the rollout of a new specialty EV called the eMLU.

The eMLU — short for electric mobile lung unit — is Winnebago’s first stab at breaking free from petroleum fuel, and it could signal a seismic shift in the RV field.

Winnebago set the Intertubes humming last spring when it announced its first foray into all-electric mobility in partnership with the company Motiv Power Systems.
