Renault Kangoo L2 E-Tech Electric Hippie Caviar Motel

RENAULT has devised a camper van with a difference which the French car maker will be showing at Europe's largest commercial vehicle show.

The Hippie Caviar Motel is based on the new Kangoo electric van and will make its debut at the IAA Transportation show in Hannover on September 19.

The converted van, built around the Kangoo L2 E-Tech Electric, is a roving, versatile and sprightly shelter for adventure and sports enthusiasts who enjoy spending time outdoors in comfort.

Designed as a mobile base camp that can effortlessly relocate from one spot to the next, the Hippie Caviar Motel has a 177 milerange, with drivers able to add 106 milesof charge in 30 minutes.

With several smart storage spaces inside and out of the vehicle there is plenty of room to keep sports and camping equipment.

The roof, which comes with a rack that can hold skis, also has space for a huge panoramic roof which can be used to enjoy the stars after folding down the bench into a single bed.

The showcar comes with examples of Renault's strategy to reduce carbon emissions throughout the vehicle's life cycle - including the shelves and floor which are made of recycled tyres and cork, as well as the all-electric powertrain.
