Ecco: The Zero-Emission Mobile Habitat

 In the initial days, we used a vehicle just for traveling. But in the coming future, where we can't get time even to take a suite in a hotel we need a better alternative. Ecco, the conceptual mobile habitat of the future serves the purpose. It can be maneuvered not only as a vehicle but also as a temporary habitat. It is provided with a bathroom capsule, tiny kitchen, living room for 5 people with all necessary facilities such as water supply etc. Coming to looks, it appears to be an alien automobile which looks extravagant and futuristic. And the interested fact is, it is promised as a zero emission vehicle, which means it has no emission of its own and can be charged with a normal 240KW station as fuel. Alternatively, it is provided with dynamic solar panels for solar charging, in case of emergency. Sufficient space for 5 members is provided.
