The world's first solar-powered house on wheels

Stella Vita

Stella Vita is a Self-Sustaining House On Wheels. This means that it is self-sufficient in terms of energy. Thanks to solar panels on the roof, it is independent of charging stations. Stella Vita generates enough solar energy to drive, shower, watch TV, charge your laptop and make coffee.
