The Globebus by Dethleffs has been awarded the prestigious Caravan Salon Düsseldorf design award: innovations for new mobility.
Arguably one of Dethleffs’ most exciting ranges for 2013, the Globebus is a compact A Class motorhome which is just 2.15m (8.2 feet) wide, and offers luxurious touring in a vehicle that few drivers will find daunting to pilot, reports Out And About Live.
The Globebus’ striking design is taken from Dethleffs’ 2012 EVAN concept vehicle; three lens headlight clusters combined with LEDs front and rear certainly giving the range a modern and distinctive look.
The design brief was to create a van that was “dynamic, racy (and) low”, and with these touches and a modest height of 2.62m (8.5 feet), the transition from drawing board to production line is clearly one appreciated by the judges.
A full report on the Globebus and the rest of the Dethleffs 2013 range can be found in the September issue of Which Motorhome magazine—alongside all the major 2013 launches from all the main manufacturers.
The Globebus is available in several classes with a series of models in each.

- Maximum authorized weight: 3499kg (7,713 pounds)
