Official video shows Dethleffs first all-electric, solar-backed motor home.Dethleffs designed a Type C motorhome around the Iveco Daily Electric chassis.
The Daily relies on a 107-hp (80-kW) electric motor and several battery options to offer up to 174 mi (280 km) of range (NEDC), in non-camper trim. Dethleffs has done its best to improve the e.home’s range by slapping on 334 sq ft (31 sq m) worth of thin-film solar panels.
These panels can generate up to 3,000 watts of electricity to keep the 228-Ah sodium-nickel-chloride battery array charged. S
uper capacitors allow for faster battery charging and discharging, providing better performance and more efficient power usage. The most important is that solar panels make this motor home self sustainable.
