Do you think it’s possible to go anywhere you want without paying a single dollar?
Well, this cutting edge motorhome with an amazing design is going to allow you to do just that. Built for open road it completely eliminates the need for fuel.
Never seen before, the Iveco Daily Electric Chasis is created by the RV Company Dethleffs. The RV has solar panels installed on the sides and the roof. The total area of the solar panels is 334 square feet of very thin and efficient solar panels which produce up to 3000 watts of energy.
The RV has no charging station, instead It has a 228-Ah sodium-nickel-chloride battery. The battery can last for about 1,500 charges or approximately 250,000 kilometers.
This solar moving house is also an e-home coming with smart windows, a great and efficient heating system and driver assistance technology.
According to Green Matters:
“The e-home utilizes Victron Energy products for the solar kit, including solar charge controllers, an inverter/charger for AC electricity and to charge the lithium batteries, ancillaries, and a DC-DC converter to supply charge stations for phones, laptops and the like.
The motorhome also features a sleek and modern design; circular wireless charging station; infrared heating panels on interior floors, furniture, and walls; windows with darkening film between the panes; and a heating system that captures outside air on days warmer than 79 degrees, then sends it into the main cabin when the evening’s cooler air sets in. Oh, yeah—and a starlight projection system over the alcove bed. “
Dethleffs Managing Director, Alexander Leopold, said:
“Dethleffs know this means a lot more than just putting bodywork on an electrically driven chassis. By implementing a fully electric powertrain there are many challenges and equal opportunities for the entire vehicle.
One significant opportunity is to do without any additional type of energy sources for the vehicle. This means that a motorhome with electric drive will also supply all the onboard services with electricity for the living area instead of gas, for example – and that is why solar power production becomes very important.”
