Grounded is an electric RV company based in Detroit founded in 2022 by Sam Shapiro and his team of engineers, designers, architects, and ex-founders.

The goal is to create “amazing products that will enable people to explore more without harming the planet.”

Working out of Newlab at Michigan Central, Grounded is producing the G2 Campervan, a fully electric, solar equipped, high-roof campervan that lets customers sustainably explore for more than 250 miles per charge.

Among the van’s features are:

  • Remotely controllable electronics and appliances, with 1000 watts of solar to charge up
  • Queen-sized bed
  • Bench seating with flip-up table
  • Kitchen with fridge/freezer, sink, and induction stove
  • Large garage space, under-seat storage, and optional overhead storage
  • Outdoor shower or indoor wet room with dry-flush toilet
  • Spacious interior (75.2 inches at widest point, 158 inches long)
  • High ceiling (78.5 inches at tallest point)

“We think Detroit is having a resurgence and is the place to be for mobility-defining companies,” Shapiro says.
