Land Rover Builds Compact Christmas Cabin for Santa

Land Rover has created a compact Christmas cabin with space for two adults to sleep snugly in North Pole temperatures as low as -20°C, and it folds down to fit in the rear of the top-selling Discovery Sport. 

  • Tiny 'Christmas cabin' fits in the back of compact Discovery Sport SUV
  • Ingenious structure measures just 3.5m2 and can sleep two adults
  • Withstands freezing temperatures with minimal impact on the environment
  • Tested by 12-times Everest climber Kenton Cool

The Discovery Sport is Land Rover's biggest-selling model, with more than 100,000 vehicles sold in 2016. Designed for active lifestyle it offers a generous interior space with a number of innovative storage solutions placed throughout the interior. To illustrate the versatility of the Discovery Sport, Land Rover's engineers were tasked with the idea of creating a cabin that can fit inside the Discovery Sport.

Land Rover's engineers have created a cosy cabin that can be transported and fits inside the Land Rover Discovery Sport compact SUV, perfect for packing away for a long weekend. 

The cabin has been cleverly designed and has space for two adults to sleep snugly in and can keep you warm in temperatures as low as -20°C​. Designed to fit in the back of the Land Rover's top-selling Discovery Sport, it folds down neatly to fit in the rear. Land Rover engineers have used every bit of the versatile Discovery Sport's 1,698 litre-rear load space to carry the wooden cabin's components.

"We wanted to create a Christmas cabin for Santa, in a truly Land Rover way. The spacious and versatile Discovery Sport was perfect for this project. The seats can be folded flat at the push of a button from the load space, which is wide and square and there are plenty of hidden storage spaces like the area under the front cup-holders. Building a cabin that utilised all these features was a lot of fun. We could have built this in one of our bigger models, but we wanted to prove just how versatile the baby of the Discovery family truly is."
