RVshare has debuted a new partnership with electric RV startup, Grounded, to bring a pioneering electric RV rental program to the Detroit market. These rentals are available exclusively on RVshare, making Grounded RVs the first electric vehicle fleet on the platform. This program, which is also supported by the Michigan Office for Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME), will provide sustainable travel options for travelers in a historically underserved city via a fleet of E-RVs available for daily hire, organizers said.

The exclusive partnership with Grounded offers renters eco-friendly mobility, and a chance to provide firsthand feedback that will help refine and improve future iterations of the E-RV program. The “G1 models” are built with zero-emissions technology, fulfilling broader sustainability goals that align with the mission of the OFME, and for an affordable cost. All three G1 electric camper vans will be available exclusively on RVshare starting at $199 for a 24-hour period.

“The partnership between RVshare and Grounded marks a significant step in RV innovation,” said RVshare CEO Jon Gray. “It is exciting to give customers access to the very first fleet of electric recreational vehicles to rent for a weekend of camping or a Big 10 tailgate. We look forward to seeing how interested parties test drive these units.”

Other features and amenities of this program include charging support, insurance, central pickup location, free parking and camping recommendations.

“We’re thrilled to partner with RVshare to offer a first-of-its-kind, fully electric, zero-emissions travel experience in Detroit, which is meaningful both because of Michigan’s continued dedication to the future of transportation, and because our mission includes improving accessibility,” said Grounded’s CEO Sam Shapiro.
