Solar-Powered Stella Vita Camper Has Pop-Up Roof, Pop-Out Panels

• Motor1

Electric vehicles will transform how we get around in more ways than one, and students at The Netherlands' Eindhoven University of Technology are imagining how that could look. Twenty-two students are part of Solar Team Eindhoven, which has designed and built the world's first solar-powered camper. It's called the Stella Vita, and it previews sustainable living and mobility. 

The camper's solar panels are capable of powering the camper's various functions and the vehicle itself. On a sunny day, the camper can travel up to 730 kilometers (453 miles). They also can power things like the coffee maker and TV while you charge your laptop and shower. The camper also features a pop-up roof that increases interior headroom, making it much easier to stand up inside to cook, work, or do other things.
