Lightship Raises $34 Million for Electric RV: Startup Funding Roundup

By Justin Dawes

Lightship is developing a fully electric RV available starting in 2026. The company has raised $34 million in series B funding. It was co-led by Obvious Ventures and Prelude Ventures, with support from Allegis Capital, THOR Industries, TechNexus Venture Collaborative, Congruent Ventures, HyperGuap and Alumni Ventures.

The company raised $23 million in series A in 2022. The San Francisco-based startup said its product, the Lightship L1, is being built with a large energy storage system, an electric motor and enough solar power capabilities to keep the vehicle charged for a week.

The next step is building the manufacturing system and supply chain, followed by pilot manufacturing later this year at its new production facility in Colorado. Production is expected to begin in late 2024. Customers can join the waitlist for a refundable deposit of $500. The RV price begins at $125,000.

Lightship also says its technology could also enable the electrification of pickup trucks and SUVs.
