With the CARAVAN SALON starting now in Düsseldorf, la strada announces the new Nova product range for the year 2020. First computer animations give an impression of the new flagship of the German Motorhome manufacturer.
Two layouts with a length of 6,46 and 6,99 m will be available in the first half of 2020. Such as its predecessor, the new Nova will be made of a GRP monocoque cabin mounted on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis with rear- or four-wheel-drive. The sophisticated construction of the extremely long lasting glass-fibre reinforced plastic monocoque cabin ensures a high-end isolation, reliable leak tightness and an elegant design.
“Granted, the realization of the new Nova took longer than we wished it would. But now we are on the verge of accomplishing our new flagship. The new la strada Nova still follows the proven concept of the GRP monocoque cabin. Apart from that we have developed a completely new vehicle in which many suggestions from our customers and business partners have been incorporated,” says Marco Lange, Managing Director and owner of la strada Fahrzeugbau GmbH. “We are convinced that we will pursue the success of our top product range with the new Nova. The new Nova fulfils our highest requirements of quality, comfort and equipment of a compact motorhome.”
The superstructure of the Nova showcases a one cast cabin without locking ledges, handles or hinges on the exterior traps. The entrance door of the GRP build-up is significantly wider than before. The slightly darkened windows fit perfectly aligned within the appearance of the motorhome. A large rear window brings light and air in the interior and adhere seamlessly to the harmonious lines of the GRP monocoque cabin.
The new Nova M features the well-known floorplan of his predecessor with three sleeping places: a length side mounted tow-away bed above the seating group and a second single bed crosswise in the rear above the garage. With 6,46m the new Nova M is ten centimetres longer than he was before. This leaves more room for the living space. With a wheelbase of 3,66m the motorhome remains easy to manoeuvre. Serially, the Nova M will be built with a total mass of 4,1t and a very generous payload of 920 kilograms. For only two passengers, the vehicle will as well be available downloaded to 3,5t with a remaining payload of 320 kilograms.
The completely new Nova EB features single beds in the rear and storage compartments above the seating group in the front. This 6,99m long “giant” built on the 4,33m wheelbase Mercedes Benz Sprinter is still a compact vehicle within the high-end luxury segment. With a permissible total weight of 4,1t, 710 kg payload do offer various loading possibilities to a two passenger layout.
Both Nova models feature four 3-point safety belt seatings as well as one Isofix fastening seating place with top tether for a child’s seat. Furthermore, the standard equipment includes SKA comfort seats with pneumatic lumbar support and heating system in the cabin as well as an incorporated awning on the left side above the entrance door. A stronger engine, four-wheel-drive, ten different paintings, ten wood colours, thirteen wooden decors for the trap doors, 115 different leather, leather/ fabric combinations and fabric varieties as well as an extensive option list, leave nothing to be desired in order to configure the new la strada star.
The new la strada Nova EB with standard 120 kW (163 HP) engine will be available from 97.430 Euro on, the more compact la strada Nova M from 95.430 Euro on (German Retail Price).
