VW Verdier’s Concept: Stylish Solar-Powered Eco Camper


Verdier’s Vehicles have with their retro and stylish designed vans and campers brought the concept of camping to another level. With these uplifting additions to a somewhat unstylish category of vehicles, one can cruise the highways in a designer camper and be rather cool when enjoying the outdoors. But Verdier has not just upgraded a stigmatized vacation vehicle but made these solar powered self-sufficient campers part of, what they themselves explain as: “a new culture with its own rituals”. The founder Alexandre Verdier, who is both a philosopher and an industrial designer, “believes that technology should allow human beings to understand nature and its power”.





Canadian designer Alexandre Verdier has given the cult-classic VW Microbus an eco-overhaul that tastefully updates the iconic breadbox on wheels.

    Think of the pussy I could pound in that VW!

    Love the concept. However, if they are retrofitting genuine VW buses, how is it that the drawer in the back that is shown holding the folding chairs is in what is normally the engine compartment? Is the entire vehicle solar powered? Is it on a similar storage battery base as the Tesla automobiles? If so, I would definitely be interested in seeing these go into production. Having a solar camping bus in one thing, but to be an entirely solar-powered electric vehicle is just off the charts awesome!

    Beautiful but since it has zero clearance I fear that it wouldn’t make it over even the smallest speed bumps. It would be great to see VW bring back the old “Westy” though.
