How efficient is the hybrid Alphard Eco Camper?

The hybrid Alphard achieves about twice the fuel efficiency specified by Japanese 2010 Fuel Efficiency Standards, while also qualifying as an ultra-low emission vehicle, consuming fuel at the rate of one litre every 17.2km (in the Japanese 10-15 test cycle). This equates to around 43mpg. In our own road tests we managed about 41mpg.

What other techy stuff is good to know?

There’s lots of design innovation to improve your driving and camping experience. Check these out: • Reduced drive resistance The highly aerodynamic body design along with reductions of the operating resistance in each part of the powertrain have reduced drive resistance and loss of drive energy, resulting in lower fuel consumption. • Insulated body The specially developed windshield glass reduces the amount of solar radiation penetration and the roof and roof panels contain an insulating material to reduce cabin temperature, which helps conserve energy when the air conditioner is operating. • Intuitive air conditioning system The hybrid Alphard uses the world's first two-way compressor with a built-in motor. The engine powers the air conditioner when it is running, and the compressor's internal motor powers it when the engine is not running, helping to conserve energy and provide enhanced comfort.

What’s the warranty deal?

As standard we offer a full year’s mechanical warranty on the base vehicle plus two years’ warranty on all our conversion work and fitted appliances. There’s an unbeatable five-year warranty on the hybrid battery (conditions apply, such as ensuring the battery is not overheated or left standing without charge for periods of inactivity). Our skilled servicing team also offers continued servicing support on all aspects of the hybrid components after this period.

Is finance available?

Yes. Our finance partners offer a range of finance options on all campervan orders. For more details, visit our finance page.

What is the road tax and insurance on this vehicle?

Because the base vehicles are imported from Japan, there is a blanket import road-tax levy – currently £270. Insurance varies according to age, driving history and postcode. Premiums are typically between £250 and £400, although these can be much higher if you live in the centre of a busy city, have just obtained your driving licence or have recent claims or convictions. Call us for details of good insurers, we are happy to help.
