Land Rover is famous for creating cars to traverse earth but sometime it may create problem. No one will feel comfort while sleeping in the back of his car, specially while trekking to the North Pole. To overcome it, Land Rover has dedicated its efforts to create a cabin that can keep two campers warm even temperature down to -20’C.
The cabin has been designed with cooperation of Danish Architecture firm LUMO, using the sustainable material it is set to feel roomier than its 3.5 m2 area. It is fixed on a 212-mm struts to look like a Discovery sport ride and there are optional rear-deck seats to match the drop-down seats available on the car.
A roof-mounted solar panel has been installed to charge the phone or tablets and if any thing bigger can be hooked in the 12V socket inside the car. Its big glass doors have been inspired by the optional panoramic sunroof of Discovery which provide an impressive view when the cabin is plonked in arctic wilderness.
When its not being used, it can be folded in the back of Discovery Sport. It has been tested by the mountaineer Kenton cool over two nights in Land rover cold-climate chamber and then moved to a secret location in Arctic.
“There is a growing trend for off-grid living and ‘wilderness cabins’ and only Land Rover could create a ‘go anywhere’ cabin like this,” says Kenon Cool, who has a surname to match his role as cold-weather tester. “The design is cleverly engineered and incredibly robust, making it perfect for remote locations across the world.”
The Land Rover Christmas cabin isn’t likely to be popping up on the option lists any time soon – at the moment it’s a one-off.
