Electric cars are becomming commonplace, but how about an electric camper van? And how about one you don't need to charge because it's solar? Engineers from a university in the Netherlands have shown that this can work, as this article from Austria's Der Standard reports.

Every week we pick a German article from the web, select a handful of useful sentences, and help you remember them for ever.
