Thor Motor Coach Researches Sustainability in Tuscany Class A Diesel Pusher at RVX

Posted on 03/11/2019

 

Salt Lake City, Utah – Thor Motor Coach is an exhibitor at RVIA’s first RVX: The RV Experience at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, from March 12 through March 14, 2019. According to RVIA, RVX will be the industry’s only dealer-focused market development trade event designed to promote the RV industry and its products.

Thor Motor Coach is showcasing a one-of-a-kind Tuscany class A diesel motorhome with sustainable energy in mind. “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, “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.

Owner experience is important, and Thor Motor Coach spares no expense with residential luxuries and upgraded technology. The exterior paint package is comparable to million dollar RVs with its breathtaking fades, drop shadows, and visual texturing under a mirror finish polish. Inside is a contemporary interior that includes embossed alligator leather furniture accents, bleached wood-grain, heated porcelain tile flooring, and modern euro-inspired cabinetry.

In the cockpit, a new infotainment system from Garmin® International, Inc. is an attention grabber. This new 15-inch integrated touchscreen display will be standard in all model year 2020 coaches. According to a press release by Garmin, the system merges world-class RV-specific Garmin navigation, and exceptional high-quality multi-zone audio entertainment powered by FUSION®, a Garmin brand. It will function as a personalized multi-functional 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 Twitter on Wednesday and Thursday during show hours.
