Ecco Campervan

A futuristic campervan that doubles in size by flipping open like a Swiss army knife is set to go on sale in 2014.

Passengers enter the 4.5m-long Ecco vehicle through a stairway that folds into the ceiling. The space is then transformed with a flip-out top deck, collapsible walls and fold-down seats for extra room. The Ecco sleeps five and is also eco-friendly with a solar-panelled roof that charges its battery and producing zero emissions.

An eight-hour charge promises to keep it running for 24 hours, and it will be able to reach a top speed of 145km/h. Swiss designer company NAU said the Ecco was inspired by the VW campervan and the Airstream. It hopes the futuristic vehicle will prove as iconic as the VW campervan.
