With only a slow trickle of fairly simple, non-groundbreaking production electric camper vans and zero-gas trailers, 2021 didn't prove a milestone year for electrified camper products. However, the electric and hybrid concepts and prototypes revealed throughout the year forecasted a promising future for cleaner, quieter RVing. These are the most intriguing concepts, prototypes, and early product previews and confirmations shown by everyone from startups, to university students, to major global automakers and RV manufacturers.

IMHO, we are still faraway from where a true motorhome/RV needs to be (to provide truly best possible independence)!
Ultimate Motorhome/RV conditions/properties/features:
1: Electric AWD All-Terrain (mini)bus (w/ hub motors)!
2: A (replaceable/swappable) battery unit (w/ max possible power/capacity/duration) provides power to the vehicle & everything inside!
3: Covered w/ solar panels (on roof & 4 sides) which continuously auto-recharge the battery unit!
4: Flex-fuel/(bio)diesel gas turbine (or Wankel engine) electric generator which continuously auto-recharge the battery unit (as long as kept turned-on)!
5: Fully self-contained micro-home w/ shower & toilet & kitchen & bed & table(s) & chair(s)!
6: The vehicle & everything inside are made of max durable materials: stainless steel, aluminum, carbon-fiber, plastic etc!
7: A water generator (which generates water from moisture of outside air) continuously auto-refills the water tank of the vehicle!
8: Satellite-based internet service!
