Laika presents the new Kosmo Van, series which, following on from our low-profile, motorhome, coachbuilt and camper van models, rounds out our offering in the Kosmo range. The new series is designed to satisfy the demand for a compact vehicle which is agile and not too long, without compromising the comfort of a low-profile model.
Available in two layouts, V9 and V5, the new Kosmo Van models are built on a Fiat Euro 6d Temp chassis with 120 CV engine, offering 200 cm of internal width and a total height of 271 cm.
The Kosmo V9 is the first of the two new Laika compact low-profile models. With an overall length of 6.65 m, its layout features twin beds at the rear. The second layout, the Kosmo V5, is shorter than 6 m with a transverse king-sized bed at the rear: the vehicle stands out for its manoeuvrability and versatility, all without sacrificing use comfort.
All Kosmo Van models have a body insulated with extruded expanded polystyrene (XPS), finished with a hail-proof fibreglass roof and non-yellowing aluminium wall panels. The windows are high quality, with flush-mounted aluminium frame, blackout protection and fly screen. The vehicles offer a premium driving experience, with specially designed ESP, ABS, ASR, Hill Holder and Roll Over Mitigation, as well as passenger airbags (all standard equipment). The ergonomic “Captain Chair” cab seats are extremely comfortable, equipped with two armrests and removable fabric covers coordinated with the living space. Entry into the living space is facilitated by an electric stepladder, while 3 USB ports (standard equipment) allow you to recharge your devices at any time. The new Kosmo Van models are also ideal for winter holidays: a heated floor is available as an option, as is a heated and insulated grey water recovery tank.
As for the rest of the Kosmo range, the interiors are an expression of Italian design and Laika’s famous attention to detail: Tuscan pearwood and glossy white furniture doors give the interior a modern and yet harmonious look. The wall units are fitted with exclusive Laika metal handles. The table and kitchen worktop are finished in an elegant rusted bronze stone effect. The kitchen, fitted with an 89 l refrigerator, is designed for practicality, with a 3 hob cooktop and supplementary worktop. The interiors are ergonomic and functional, and a wide selection of fabrics and eco-leather combinations assure unbeatable comfort both during the day and at night. The 70×50 window in the living area offers excellent illumination during the day, while the electrical system with indirect lighting (including under the kitchen worktop) creates a relaxing and comfortable mood in the evening.
The new Kosmo Van models, like all Laika 2020 vehicles, are guaranteed waterproof for 10 years.
