The world’s first car-powered hotel, Hotel Hyundai has opened its doors, offering the most unique off grid experience.
Grace Dent, curator of Hotel Hyundai, said: “We’re looking for unique, memorable stays more now than ever and this is a delicious blend of innovation, luxury and comfort that gets you thinking. With power coming from the car, where could Hotel Hyundai pop-up next?
“I’m excited for those staying with us to sample the sustainable, locally sourced menu as well as the equally fabulous cocktails, and of course to enjoy a good night’s sleep.
“I hope this three-week pop-up hotel is just the start for this concept of a car plugging in and powering a luxury experience like this. I’m predicting that guests will be hoping that his amazing hotel and the full experience it offers might be here again in 2023.”
Situated in Essex, just an hour from central London, Hotel Hyundai is centred around a luxury cabin by Colemans Farm, the room offers everything guests can expect from a luxury boutique hotel. From the lights and all amenities, everything is powered by IONIQ 5 and its Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) technology.
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK, said: “Our award winning IONIQ 5 is able to power Hotel Hyundai using its V2L feature, where an adapter from the car provides a socket which domestic appliances can be plugged into. The whole experience demonstrates the practicality of this pioneering technology, and we hope the concept inspires more people to go off grid.”
The IONIQ 5 is able to power the hotel and its experiences using its V2L feature that supplies AC power (230V/50Hz) up to a maximum of 3.6kW (or 15 Amps) power consumption. An adapter from the car provides a socket into which standard domestic appliances can be plugged into.
Members of the public can win a stay at the unique hotel and enjoy the full experience on offer with welcome cocktails, a three-course meal, evening film and breakfast hamper all included.
Hotel Hyundai is open for 14 nights from 19 October to 5 November. To be in with a chance to win a stay, visit: www.kiphideaways.com/hideaways/hotel-hyundai.
