The vehicle is fully kitted out as a motorhome, however, that range per charge may be significantly shorterDethleffs 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.Official video shows Dethleffs first all-electric, solar-backed motor home.DethleffsTV

These panels can generate up to 3,000 watts of electricity to keep the 228-Ah sodium-nickel-chloride battery array charged. Super capacitors allow for faster battery charging and discharging, providing better performance and more efficient power usage.
