The Ecco rides low to the ground, unlike the VW bus, ensuring minimum wind resistance. But it’s also wider, and when parked, expands into one of the most comfortable and spacious temporary travel homes of its kind. The Ecco is an all electric vehicle that charges up quickly, ensuring absolutely zero emissions.

There’s more. Encouraging the kind of free-spirit that inspired the VW bus but in the context of dwindling energy supplies and climate change, the Ecco also has photovoltaic panels and a solar sail. These charge up the vehicle wherever there is sun. As long as its users check the weather before they head off, they will be able to roam without fear of running out of juice. And they can do all this with not one drop of guilt.

    why does everything have to be about guilt? who are all these miserable guilt obsessed people? remind me not to party with you whoever you are.

    why not get excited about it because it is better technology? the opportunity to evolve and move away from arcane, inferior technology? stop feeling bad, you are wrecking everything.
