Opel showed a prototype camper based on an electric minivan - Zafira-e Crosscamp Flex.

Like every vehicle in the Crosscamp series, the all-electric Crosscamp Flex has everything you need for a relaxing ride. Practical equipment includes 180-degree swivel front seats, a kitchenette, washbasin, gas stove and built-in wardrobes, as well as potable and waste water tanks. 

With a rear bench seat that quickly converts to a double bed and two more berths under a pop-up roof, the Crosscamp Flex can accommodate four people.

In addition, Crosscamp based on the Zafira-e Life can count on the full range of the original vehicle's assistance systems, offered as standard equipment. The list includes forward collision warning, emergency braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, lane keeping assist and traffic sign recognition with semi-adaptive cruise control.

An underfloor-mounted 75 kWh lithium-ion traction battery allows travel up to 322 kilometers. When using a 100 kW DC charging system, the battery reaches 80 percent charge in approximately 48 minutes. 

To conserve traction battery energy for driving, a built-in 95 Ah auxiliary battery provides electricity for lighting, a refrigerator and a USB socket for charging other consumers such as smartphones or cameras.

The Opel Zafira-e Crosscamp Flex prototype will be on display at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf from 26 August to 4 September. 

The all-electric Crosscamp Flex will join diesel-powered Crosscamp options in 2023. Subsequently, the German brand also plans to offer an electric city camper called the Crosscamp Lite. Prices for new items have not yet been announced.

Opel showed the Zafira-e Crosscamp Flex just a day after the announcement of the Renault Hippie Caviar Motel electric van. This model is based on the Kangoo production model and is equipped with a 120 horsepower (90 kW) electric motor. The 45 kWh battery provides an estimated range of 285 kilometers. However, Renault, unlike Opel, has not yet announced whether it plans to launch the production of such a mini camper or simply demonstrates the capabilities of an electric car.
