This futuristic electric RV transforms into a luxury home at the press of a button

We’ve seen some pretty spectacular RVs, including Justin Bieber’s, for example, but this is something else.

It’s called the eTH and it’s a luxury home on wheels.

And, for once, this is more than just a figure of speech.

The name eTH actually stands for electric transformer house.

The key word is ‘transformer’.

Built by AC Future, a California start-up, in partnership with Italian design house Pininfarina, the eTH is a normal RV that can expand and transform itself into a mini home.

In ‘normal’ conditions, the RV is 20 feet (6.09 meters) long and 11 feet (3.3 meters) tall.

However, when fully expanded in ‘House Mode’, it’s longer (29 feet) and it offers up to 400 square feet of living space.

More to the point, it also becomes 8 feet wider.

So what is all that space used for?

The RV is customizable but the idea is to offer the same comfort as a regular home.

You’ve got separate spaces that can be used for the kitchen, a bedroom, a living room and, of course, a bathroom, too.

Even the cockpit can be used as a living space because, in House Mode, the steering wheel retracts and you can use the dashboard as a desk.

The eTH is designed for off-the-grid operability.

It’s fitted with a retractable solar panel roof that can generate up 25 kWh of power, and it has something called ‘Atmospheric Water Generator’ that can convert moisture into clean water.

The bad news is no price point was revealed, but we’re willing to beat it won’t come cheap.

We’ll find out more in 2025, which is when AC Future and Pininfarina plan to start building a production version.
