Solar-powered motorhome cruises with no need for fuel

Staff writer

We here in the UK love a motorhome – the industry is worth £500m to the economy each year. But their gas-guzzling diesel engines aren't exactly 'of the moment' – and the only electric motorhome currently on sale is a tiny , two-berth creation based on the Nissan e-NV200.

But German motorhome manufacturer Dethleffs may have the answer with the new e.home concept. It's a large, family-sized motorhome, with at least four berths, a fully-featured kitchen and massive lounge and dining area. But underneath the sofas and the chemical toilet you'll find that it's based on a fully electric Iveco Daily van.
