Superfast induction hob
Arriving soon, this white 2008 Toyota Alphard – Eco Pioneer 2.4 Hybrid automatic 4WD has 63,831 miles on the clock. It is £33,495 and is currently unconverted waiting to be customised to your specification.
Thanks to the Pioneer’s new Hybrid technology, you can bypass campsites and immerse yourself in nature for a proper wilderness experience. There’s no need for 240v hook-up or gas, with power fully supplied inside. Stay warm and snug with an inbuilt heating system, and charge up your tablet, laptop and smartphone with convenient USB points. Sleep, cook and drive almost anywhere, there is no rival.
Super-fast induction hobs for use inside or out – with our special omni-slide cooking facility – mean you can cook whatever the weather. And rustling something up en route is possible too, with an optional slow-cooker or soup maker providing a ready, home-cooked meal when you arrive at your special spot. Tea and coffee is a breeze, or you can heat up something from home if you choose the microwave option.
Living space is generous, with smartly configured interiors that magically adapt into comfortable sleeping spaces. The Vari-Track bed, a generous-sized bed secured on rails, can be safely positioned to ensure plenty of boot space to the back or legroom to the front. And up above in the elevated roof space, there’s room for two more.
There are also a variety of intelligent storage solutions, modular furniture options, and of course panoramic windows front and side for plenty of natural light and stunning views.
Imported From Japan
A high-grade used vehicle converted to a high-spec ground-breaking design/upgrade.
2.4 litre petrol hybrid
41mpg with 160bhp
4-star rating for emissions which are 75% lower than required by Japan’s 2005 Emission Standards, and 10% better than Japan’s 2010 Fuel Economy Standards. All base vehicles manufactured during or after 2006 conform to Ultra Low Emissions standards required, for example, by London’s Ultra Low Emissions Zone ULEZ.
The 2.4-litre 2AZ-FSE petrol engine has been developed specifically for use in hybrid systems and features a high-expansion ratio cycle that raises efficiency and reduces friction.
Insurance & Road Tax
Classed as a campervan insurance Group 2. Road tax on these vehicles, as with all Japanese imports, is £270 per annum – regardless of fuel type.
Warranty & support
A year’s full mechanical warranty (extensions available) and two-years+ on the brand new vehicle conversions designed and built on CampervanCo’s production line. All warranty work is carried out in Grangemouth, but we are expanding our service reach across the UK and can collect vehicles from customers for warranty work, or appoint local partners if required.
NCAP Crash Testing & Vehicle Registration
All vehicles comply to strict Japanese safety standards which means they comply fully with UK and EU safety standards. Our import service fully inspects, imports and registers all the vehicles into the UK market and they receive standard, age-relevant number plates.
The Toyota Alphard Hybrid is one of the most popular hybrid vehicles in Japan and incorporates Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive. This combines the power and convenience of a low-emission petrol engine and the economy and efficiency of an electric power capture and drive system. When the engine is running, it charges the battery via the generator; when driving conditions allow, such as in slow-moving traffic, the generator can cut out the petrol engine and let the electric motor take over for zero-emissions driving.
The sophisticated engine management system can sense when the car is stationary and will switch off the engine to conserve power and cut emissions, automatically starting up again when required. The best bit about these vehicles is their ability to capture kinetic energy while driving. Every time the vehicle slows down or brakes, the regenerative braking system converts that movement energy back into electric charge which is stored in the Hybrid battery. This is recycling in its purest form and makes these vehicles greener and more versatile than any campervan on the road.
Our very own über-green Tribrid version offers the economic and ecological benefits of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), also known as Autogas. This creates safe and efficient natural gas power that works alongside the petrol and electric power options. Not only is LPG half the price of petrol (providing the economic equivalent of 80mpg), it emits a fraction of the toxins associated with petrol and diesel. It can extend tank range to over 1000 miles without refuelling, and provides extra power on motorways or in challenging environments. Offering exceptional range and economy, the Tribrid outperforms any campervan on the market.
