California-based company Polydrops has come up with an ingenious trailer made for electric vehicles and it sure looks a lot like Tesla's Cybertruck. It's called the P17A camper and it's equipped with floor integrated batteries that provide 12kWh of electricity.
Anybody who has ever tried carrying a trailer with an electric vehicle knows that you run out of juice pretty fast. So Polydrops decided to put the juice in the trailer.
The firm also added 520W of solar panels on the trailer's roof for more power. Polydrops prides itself on providing "sustainable energy" and even adds that the vehicle has "all components including a 5000BTU air conditioner and heater."
The inside of the camper fits two people comfortably and has everything a couple could desire: a big comfy mattress, charging sockets, and a kitchenette module accessible from the inside as well as outside. Does anyone want to cook under the stars?
The camper's website also states that it is built for all weathers. "P17A's Fully insulated one-piece shell keeps the thermal energy tight inside of the cabin. Maximum 8.7" insulation reducing the amount of energy needed for heating and cooling."
Finally, last but not least, the camper has been designed aerodynamically to reduce both drag and its total weight meaning you can carry it farther for longer without burning too much energy.
According to Yanko Design, the firm took the trailer on a ride with a Tesla Model 3 from Los Angeles to Lone Pine at an average speed of 88- 96km/h (55-60 mph) at a 394km (245 mile) range on a single charge. Now those are some impressive numbers!
The price of the P17A is $24,990 and an optional kitchenette can be added for $1,850 while a Bluetooth speaker will cost you $500. Considering how efficient this camper is, we would say these rates are a steal.
