Beyond the Chevrolet Volt

Am Swiss, Mechanical Engineer and "would like to be inventer"(comment family members) and work as pilot far away from home in Qatar.
Now and then my 82 years old father helps me on one of many projects - latest one:
Would like to build a trailer around a Honda MCHP using a nicely designed horsetrailer as follows:
Forward section is a shower.
Mid section over wheels holds CNG tanks with 30 to 50 kg capa ity.
Over these tanks is a normal size toilet and a wash basin.
Aft part reserved for one or two water tanks plus the Honda module, which delivers one kW electric power plus three kW thermal power.
And these are the uses:
1. Most of time standing in front of family home and delivering heat to the house and power to the grid.
2. Part of a RV, when pulled by an electric van which is not yet on the market.
3. As "2." when electric van, which same time is the family car, should need to run more than normal range.

Am convinced, that cars should be used as integral "personal power stations" in future and would like to convince others of this approach - especially car makers...

So which forumsection should I go?

Thanks and regards
Max

Hi Max! Thank you for choosing iRV2.com. I hope that we can get you engaged with some like minded people here that will work with you in developing your ideas.

About an electric van, have you seen this?



Totally electric and working everyday! By Navistar it's called the eStar. For more information click "here "

This vehicle is currently in commercial use by local delivery establishments. Yes you should be able to buy it and I have no idea as to how this vehicle is priced.

If you explore the website further you will see the body builders that convert the eStar. I do not expect that you can buy one directly from Navistar unless they have them for sale at International dealers. There should be an International dealers in your country so you may want to start there.

International has dealerships all across the face of the planet.
