Livin’ Stella Vita loca
The vehicle has the aerodynamic tear-drop shape of other solar-powered vehicles and sports a series of solar panels on its roof. However, it also has additional roofing that slides up when stationary, making it easier to stand inside to cook or sleep. The panels can also fold outward to increase their surface area to as much as 17.5 square meters.
The Stella Vita can go 730 kilometers (450 miles) on a sunny day, assuming none of the amenities inside are used. According to Ter Horst, the vehicle’s battery can be charged to full in between two and three days, though it depends on how clear the weather is. So the vehicle is really made for tours that include extended stops. But the battery can also be filled up at electric vehicle charging stations if it’s particularly cloudy out.
