This Solar Powered RV Runs Without Fuel Or Charging Stations

Can you imagine traveling everywhere you want, without having to pay a single dollar?

Well, the following impressive motorhome with a sleek design is built for the open road, but it completely eliminates the need of the two basic essentials of transport- the driving experience and fuel.

The Iveco Daily Electric chassis is something we have not seen before, and it has been created by the RV Company Dethleffs.  The car has solar panels installed on the roof and the sides, which is in total 334 square feet of thin-film solar panels which can deliver up to 3,000 watts of energy.

Instead of a charging station, it has a 228-Ah sodium-nickel-chloride battery, with all the fittings inside the RV, good for approximately 1,500 charges or about 250,000 km.

This solar house on wheels is also an e-home, with smart windows, a great 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.”

    Thanks for the ideas you have discussed here. Additionally, I believe there are a few factors which will keep your car insurance premium lower. One is, to contemplate buying automobiles that are inside the good directory of car insurance companies. Cars which might be expensive will be more at risk of being lost. Aside from that insurance coverage is also in line with the value of your automobile, so the higher in price it is, then higher the actual premium you pay.
