Over a year ago, we mentioned Verdier Van & Camper’s Eco-Camper, the posh recreational throwback to VW’s Westfalia, and it looks like the Solar Power Eco-Camper has a new look. Verdier now offers five different personalities of the award-winning vehicle: Woody, Geeky, Ebony, Blueberry, and Purity. The eco-camper configuration is an add-on package available in any personality and entails solar panels, hybrid engine, Sun Tracker system, two gazebos, a second floor area, sliding door with integrated ladder, folding furniture, cargo storage, etc. The price? $129,000.
Verdier features a hybrid, 2.7 liter engine with a four-speed automatic transmission. It also comes with two large batteries that can be powered by the 12-watt solar panels or by running the engine. The Sun Tracker system ensures that the solar panels get the maximum amount of energy.
Verdier is taking reservations for the "New Pioneers Edition" of 250 vehicles. Jetson Green is also taking donations of a New Pioneers Edition Ebony Solar Power Eco-Camper if anyone is in the giving mood. Hint.
