Winnebago will build electric bloodmobiles, mulls battery-powered RVs

Electric commercial vehicles are becoming more and more attractive to business owners who are looking to save money on fuel and maintenance costs, and these days more manufacturers are looking to get into the game, even Winnebago.

Yes, the very same Winnebago that has been enchanting Americans on cross-country trips for decades is getting ready to start releasing electric versions of its commercial vehicle platforms in partnership with a company called Motiv Power Systems. You might be struggling to picture a commercial Winnebago, but they are extremely popular platforms for bookmobiles, bloodmobiles (aka mobile blood donation centers) and mobile medical units.
