VW Westfalia Goes Sun Tracking
So it’s good to see the Westy getting a revamp.
This hi-tech machine is theÂ Westfalia Verdier Camper.
At the moment it’sÂ a concept but that doesn’t stop me wanting it.Â Â
Forget the ‘basic’ accomodation offered by the original.Â This beauty has tech that couldn’t have even beÂ dreamed of when the original camper was built.
Amongst all the tech isÂ an intelligent solar panel systemÂ called “SUN TRACKER”.
This system makes it possible to provide electricity to the on-board accessories while the vehicle is in a stationary position.Â All this is sorted by anÂ on-board computer and GPSÂ to calculate the optimal position for the SUN TRACKER.
It also has pneumatic suspension thatÂ lowers the vehicle for improved comfort and better stabilityÂ whilst stationary.Â There’s also lots of hybrid drive technology.
Itâ€™s Canadian (cool eh?), sleepsÂ two adults and twoÂ kidsÂ and will cost around $69,000 a pop if/when it everÂ gets the go-ahead – please?Â ;0,
