NOW that’s cutting edge!

Passengers enter the 4.5m-long Ecco vehicle through a stairway that folds into the ceiling.

The space is then transformed with a flip-out top deck, collapsible walls and fold-down seats for extra room.

The Ecco sleeps five and is also eco-friendly with a solar-panelled roof that charges its battery and produces zero emissions.

An eight-hour charge promises to keep it running for 24 hours, and it will be able to reach a top speed of 145km/h.

Swiss designer company NAU said the Ecco was inspired by the VW campervan and the Airstream. It hopes the futuristic vehicle will prove as iconic as the VW campervan.

“We want to bring the freedom of the road back to generations of the future,” a NAU spokesperson said.
