Just in time for summer road trips, Nissan has debuted two new camper vans  at the Madrid Motor Show. The company showcased mod-style camper vans — one with a pop-up sleeper roof and one designed for  zero-emissions  — perfect for your next adventure. The car giant recently debuted the two new camper vans in Madrid. The NV300 Camper sleeps up to four people thanks to a pop-top sleeper roof, and the e-NV200 Camper is fully-electric. The electric camper van is powered by a 40kWh battery, which can be charged up to 80 percent in less than an hour, so you can be back on the road in a flash. The e-NV200 gets approximately 124 miles on a single charge.

In both models, the living space is efficiently designed with a compact kitchen that comes with a stove, sink and refrigerator. An abundance of windows lets natural light flood the interior, but the vans are equipped with retractable shades for privacy. The interior is installed with a number of transforming features for space optimization. There is a removable table that attaches to the kitchen countertop and can be dismantled when not in use. In addition to the rear bench, which is set on floor rails for added flexibility, the front seats swivel around to provide additional seating. For gear storage, the exterior of the van is equipped with various racks and awnings. Unfortunately, the electric vans are only available in Spain at the moment, with the e-NV200 starting at a base price of $25,165. + Nissan Via Curbed Images via Nissan
