Germany-based Dethleffs has unveiled “e.home”, a solar-powered electric mobile home on wheels. It’s based on the Dethleffs Iveco Daily Electric chassis, and powered by a 107-hp electric motor with several different battery options, with the largest offering a range up to just over 100-miles. What really sets it apart are its solar panels, which can generate up to 3,000 watts of electricity to power the 228-Ah sodium-nickel-chloride battery.

“Besides the solar panels and electric motor, there are other efficient tricks to the e.home concept, like a heating system that uses phase change materials to absorb heat when the outside temperature rises above 79°. The heat is then released into the cabin when the temperature drops at night. There are also infrared heating panels in the floor, walls and furniture,” reports Inhabitat.
