World’s First Bed-and-Breakfast Powered By Electric Cars Offers Luxury Nights in English Countryside

The world’s first car-powered bed-and-breakfast has opened to the public—with all power supplied by electric vehicles for a true off-grid experience.

Situated outside of London in Essex, England, the secluded accommodation offers a quiet escape for two to the countryside—and the luxury stay is free for whichever winners are picked at random.

Guests will enjoy a local menu and mixology-curated drinks using innovative and sustainable ingredients sourced within Essex—all served in an outdoor bar and dining area near a fireplace amid a forest.

The new concept, Hotel Hyundai, was launched by the car brand alongside broadcaster Grace Dent to introduce their new electric vehicle. The whole experience will be powered through the Hyundai IONIQ 5’s V2L feature, which harnesses the car’s electricity to power other appliances through an adaptor.

The three-week pop-up hotel giveaway comes in the wake of new poll showing 44 percent would like to go on more short staycations, rather than traveling long distances.

With the public citing sustainability, supporting local businesses, and stress-free travel, UK travelers will find it all in this pop-up vacation destination.

Grace Dent, curator of the hotel concept, says, “We’re looking for unique, memorable stays now, more than ever, and this is a delicious blend of innovation, luxury, and comfort that gets you thinking.

Another perk is an outdoor cinema that will give guests the opportunity to kick-back, relax and unwind.

53 percent of respondents to the OnePoll survey would also like to invest their vacation cash in local UK economies rather than abroad—and half agreed nothing beats a holiday in the great British countryside.

Hotel Hyundai is open for 14 nights from October 19 to November 5 to members of the public who’ve won a stay. Sign up by October 19 and choose three preferable dates.

The stay includes one night in the deluxe woodland cabin, surrounded by 200 acres of walking trails around a working farm with ancient forests and a babbling brook.

Your 3-course menu for dinner will be personally prepared, with your food preferences collected in advance, along with a full breakfast.

They’re giving away 14 one-night complimentary stays—but you need to fill out the entry form by October 19 at the vacation website, Kip Hideaways, which offers ‘small places with soul’.

“This hotel concept has been possible thanks to IONIQ 5 and the supply of power, where an adapter from the car provides a socket which domestic appliances can be plugged into,” said Ashley Andrew, from Hyundai Motor UK.

“The whole experience demonstrates the practicality of this pioneering technology, and we hope the concept inspires more people to go off grid.”
