A Twenty-two Dutch student team known for its solar-powered vehicles has unveiled the world’s first fully solar-powered camper. These students are from Eindhoven University and are dedicated to a sustainable future.

The team called it Stella Vita, and it previews sustainable living and mobility. They say it can generate enough power to drive 730 kilometers (454 miles) in a day, along with a house on wheels.

According to the team manager, Kjell Revenberg, It comes with “an official m1 license plate, which means that we can drive everywhere on the open road,” 

Stella Vita RV is independent of charging stations

You need not to stop for charging with this RV. There are 8.8 square meters of solar collectors on the roof. However, these can also be expanded to 17.5 square meters when the vehicle is parked.

Revenberg said, “You don’t have to pay for your electricity, you are 100% sure that it is green energy and you are independent of the infrastructure of the country you’re in,”

Following are some of its features:

  • This solar house on wheels has a shower, a kitchen, a bedroom, and a cockpit. 
  • Stella Vita can travel up to 730 kilometers on a sunny day.
  • It is capable of generating 60-kWh of power while it travels the roads at a heady 75 MPH. Moreover, its solar roof also provides enough energy to take a shower, watch TV, charge a laptop or make coffee.
  • It has also been designed to make it as light and efficient as possible.
  • The camper also has a pop-up roof. It helps in increasing interior headroom, providing a comfortable living space inside the van for relaxing, working, cooking, or sleeping.
