An amazing looking RV was created by students at the Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands. It is powered entirely by massive solar panels that are mounted on its roof.

Students claim that their solar RV, named Stella Vita by the students, can travel 454 miles using solar energy. This is a remarkable feat for a vehicle that doubles as a home away form home.

Off Grid

The team plans to drive the futuristic house-on-wheels from Eindhoven to Spain's southernmost tip in a month, which will begin on Sunday.

The Stella Vita's telescoping roof allows for a large interior. It can fit a small kitchenette and a double bed in an area of approximately 188 square feet. According to an official statement, the solar panels allow occupants to drive, make coffee and watch TV thanks to their solar panels. The bathroom even includes a shower.



Stella Vita, the successor to the Stella Lux is a family-powered solar-powered car. Ars Technica claims that the Lux was so efficient at producing power, it could even power other electric cars.

Ars says that the team isn't looking to mass produce the Stella Vita, but Tijn Ter Horst (a member of the team) speculated that it could be on the market in five years.

This sounds like an off the grid camping experience. Make sure you check the weather forecast before you go.
