Is it a car? Is it a house? Technically this sustainable motorhome is both. Running on solar power, Dutch students created the vehicle to promote cleaner travel and demonstrate the potential of green living.
A group of Dutch students from the Technical University of Eindhoven have built a new solar-powered motorhome that allow for up to 460 miles of travel on a sunny day.
It’s hoped that the vehicle will push for quicker climate action and get us switching to electric cars sooner. Currently, the UK government has vowed to stop selling petrol and diesel cars by 2030 and says it will increase charging sites by ten-fold.
But what if you didn’t need to rely on charging ports?
The new motorhome is called Stella Vita and is billed as the first entirely self-sufficient camping car. Solar panels on its roof can be extended outwards once parked and the interior includes all the necessities you’d expect, such as a kitchen, shower, bed, toilet, and even a sofa.
