  • Nissan e-NV200 camper – Combi

    Boasting one of the tallest boots out of electric MPVs, this is one of the best EV Campers you’ll find. Boot length isn’t the best (albeit still over 2 meters, so good), meaning you’ll be giving away leg room for more headroom.

    It also offers better interior and drive comfort compared to its combustion engine counterpart. What would improve its NimbleCamper rating further? Even higher cabin and drive comfort and longer boot. To get the most out of the e-NV200, go for the Acenta trim, which will help you maximise your range. It comes with a rapid charger, battery heater and cooler, cruise control and air conditioning.

    NimbleCamper rating: 3.7/5

  • Vauxhall (Opel) Combo-e Life camper XL

    A very good-sized boot combined with good comfort levels, very low consumption and average EV efficiency makes the Combo-e Life XL a good camper.

    Add other features like the tailgate window you can open, the rear top shelf or the panoramic roof window, and you have a fully-fledged small camper ready to go. What would improve its NimbleCamper rating further? Taller boot for sure or even longer boot too.

    e-Berlingo camper (Short)

    The Berlingo is one of the most often converted cars for camping. Despite not being the biggest – very likely because of its affordability and availability (and availability bias – when you Google small campers, you’ll see a lot of Berlingos, so people naturally assume those are the best, but they are not, read on…).

    The Berlingo (and its similar cousins – Vauxhall Combo, Peugeot Partner) is a good car for car camping, but not as good for general driving & comfort during long journeys. It’s not the biggest MPV out there but offers very good mileage and low maintenance costs. It’s also very well priced – there are plenty of used van or MPV versions to be found. It’s best suited to fill the role of your second car that you can rebuild for camping. If you want it as your main car, it’s good if your budget is low, but otherwise, you’re better off with one of the more comfy and reliable or bigger MPV in our DB.

  • Sion – a solar camper

    The development of this car has been terminated by Sono Motors in February 2023.

    “A spacious electric car with a range of up to 305 kilometres that charges itself through the power of the sun.” – this says it all! It is the cheapest electric car out there and on top of that, it has built-in solar panels that can charge the car and your appliances. Or even other cars and things around you.

    There isn’t much information available beyond the prototype specs on Sono Motors, but the Sion is looking very promising as a camping car. It isn’t the biggest – but it’s big enough (about as long as the short version of the Caddy). What sets it apart is its ability to charge itself – if you are driving in a sunny country, you could add 112-245km to your range for free!

    The boot length is 163cm – not that much for sleeping,  but with the front seats pushed forward, you could get 180cm of actual length.

    It won’t dazzle you with comfort – it wouldn’t be able to keep its low price tag, but the comfort and luxury-seeking crowd isn’t Sion’s target audience. It’s the environmentally conscious, practicality over comfort and EV-enthusiastic buyer that will find all this in the car. 

    As it is still a prototype, its dimensions might change – we’ll keep it updated as much as we can!

    Chevrolet Bolt camper

    This is a small car and shouldn’t be your first choice for car camping. But it is still possible to sleep in the Chevy Bolt, even more than that, there are several ways to do so. But each has its own limitations – it can either fit a single person only, or two shorter people and it might need more DIY and/or throwing the seats out. Read: Can you sleep in a Chevy Bolt?
