Stella Vita electric RV aims to get the most miles from solar


A team of Dutch university students has radically redesigned the RV with solar power and an aerodynamic shape.

As detailed recently on “Fully Charged Show,” The Stella Vita is an electric RV with fold-out solar panels designed by Solar Team Eindhoven, a team of engineering students at the Eindhoven University of Technology.

In 2021, the team took its creation on a 1,864-mile road trip across Europe, from Eindhoven to Tarifa, Spain. The RV only needed two charging stops en route. A 74.5-mph top speed meant the Stella Vita could at least keep up with traffic.
