Alexandre Verdier’s Eco Van
French Canadian designer, Alexandre Verdier has given the classic VW Westfalia Camper Van a complete eco-overhaul, re-instating it’s hippy creds.
The new eco-wagon has a system of ‘intelligent’ solar power panels on the roof that can power all of the on board accessories while the vehicle is in a stationary position as well as an on-board computer with wireless internet and a GPS system that calculates the optimal position for the solar panels. The mini-kitchen swivels out, allowing users to cook outside as well as inside. A pneumatic suspension ensures that the van will stay properly balanced when parked while the 200hp hybrid gas/electric engine ensures a sense of dignity at the gas pump.
