Thor Motor Coach will showcase its Tuscany Class A diesel motorhome equipped with a lithium ion energy system by Volta Power Systems as part of the March 12-14 RVX: The RV Experience in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“The RVX reveal category gave us the opportunity to showcase how we are relying less on fossil fuels and focusing more on eco-friendly solutions like lithium ion and solar energy,” said Jon Krider, vice president of product development and marketing, in a press release. “Which led us to partner with Volta Power Systems.”
The RVX Tuscany houses a generator-free power system that uses lithium-ion energy and includes a high-voltage alternator, an AC/DC inverter, and DC converter. This system allows consumers to receive more power in less space and weight, and enjoy longer runtimes when they’re off the grid. Besides less pollution from a typical generator, this coach is quieter, which creates a better owner experience.
The exterior paint package features eye-catching fades, drop shadows, and visual texturing under a mirror finish polish. The contemporary interior includes embossed alligator leather furniture accents, bleached wood-grain, heated porcelain tile flooring, and modern Euro-inspired cabinetry.
The cockpit offers a new infotainment system from Garmin International Inc. The new 15-inch integrated touchscreen display will be standard in all model year 2020 coaches. The system merges RV-specific Garmin navigation with high-quality, multizone audio entertainment powered by FUSION, a Garmin brand. It will function as a personalized multifunctional infotainment media hub offering full screen or split screen options for RV specific navigation, audio entertainment, on-board system monitoring, and the power to view four on-vehicle cameras under one centralized easy-to-use display.
Thor Motor Coach will be releasing information on their concept vehicles at RVX next week. If dealers are not stopping by Booth 2700K, live videos will be broadcast on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitteron Wednesday and Thursday during show hours.
