Imagine traveling in a solar motorhome that travels far and wide through a country without any supply costs!
Finished imagining this fairy tale? Well. Time to watch it live. Dethleffs, a company that has been active in electric vehicles for years, has developed a daydream: a solar camper that in fact does not need to stop to refuel.
The VR electric motorhome, born from the chassis of an electric IVECO Daily, he is perfectly capable of making everyone travel without being dependent on the power grid at all. Its solar panels not only cover the roof but extend on every available side of the bodywork. In total, this solar camper is equipped with 100 square meters of solar panels, which can easily supply up to 3000 watts of energy. A godsend for the traveler, serenity to go go.
There is no need to look for any charging points, obviously as long as it's sunny outside.
The 228Ah battery with sodium nickel-chloride technology is extremely performing. It travels beautifully over 160 miles even in the dark before having to stop to restore energy. If you consider that its range holds well over 1500 charging cycles, you will understand that in the life of this electric camper 250.000km are more than guaranteed.
And that's not all: this solar camper is not just a house on wheels with photovoltaic panels stuck here and there. It is a full-blown e-home. With so many driving assistance technologies, storing, heating and food storage systems can make life really comfortable, especially when traveling.
In other words, the Dethleffs hybrid vehicle is perfect for traveling anywhere without any worries. If I had to say that it is a literally electrifying thing, don't mind me, I just get excited.
