German maker La Strada has released the new flagship Nova EB based on Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, which is a tiny house on wheels with complete bathroom, kitchen and a king size double bed.
The new flagship of the German Manufacturer is based on the Mercedes Sprinter with rear-wheel-drive. The list of available equipment leaves nothing to be desired, four-wheel-drive, automatic gear box, numerous driving assistants, up to 127 upholstery choices, full leather or leather/ fabric combinations, the configuration certainly is individual.
The beds measure 200 and 189 centimetres in the length and 80 centimetres in the width. In both beds the Froli supports as well as the cold-foam mattresses ensure a comfortable rest. When required the beds can easily be transformed into one big sized bed by using the foreseen element. Underneath the front end of the beds one will find extractable compartments for folded cloths as well as a wardrobe for coat hangers. The garage is located beneath the rear end of the beds and offers room for bicycles and other bulky goods. The large storage place is accessible from two outside garage doors as well as from an inside trap.
The kitchen and the bathroom are located in the central part of the superstructure of the Nova. Kitchen utensils can be stored in two large pull out compartments, in a cutlery drawer, in an open storage rack as well as in two upper cupboards. The 80-liter AES refrigerator is mounted beneath the two-flame cooking device with automatic piezo ignition. The working space extension located at the left side of the kitchen block will delight the chef!
The bathroom on the opposite includes the toilet, cupboards for toiletries and a serial window. When the washing basin gets pulled upwards, a large shower, separated by a folding door, finds place.
The L-shaped seating group is positioned right behind the driver’s cabin. In the driving mode, the Nova EB features four seating places with three-point seat belts. The Isofix-system for a child’s seat with top-tether fastener on the bench is standard. The SKA comfort seats with electrical lumbar support and heating system are very enjoyable for both driver and passenger. A seat ventilation is even available for the full-leather trim. Powerful engine types, four-wheel-drive, ten different paintings, nine wood decorations, thirteen wood trap finishes, 127 various full leather, fabric and leather/ fabric combinations as well as a considerable list of options do respond to nearly every single wish one might have when configuring the new la strada flagship.
With a length of 6,99 meter, the biggest la strada ever built still classifies itself as compact van within the luxury segment. With a standard total mass of 4,1 tons, a generous payload of 710 kilograms remains – a rather copious reserve for a two-person floorplan of this size.
For the superstructure of the Nova EB, la strada relies on a complex and extremely long-lasting monocoque construction made of fibre-reinforced plastic material. A perfect insulation, reliable leak tightness and an elegant shape reward the effort! The floorplan of the Nova EB is specific to two passengers.
The base price of the la strada Nova EB with a 120 kW (163 HP) engine amounts at 100.930 Euro in Germany. The standard equipment includes ABS, ASR, ESP, daytime running lights, crosswind assist intervention and driver cab central locking, while the cabin serially counts the isolated and heatable waste water tank, a window in the bathroom and the tight-fitted awning. Together with the Comfort Package, the Technical Package 1 and the prior freight costs, documents, gas inspection, pre-delivery inspection, the Nova EB costs 107.499 Euro in Germany. In addition, numerous options are available.
