Opel kept itself busy and today, in Frankfurt, revealed the RAK e concept and a lot of details, but only a few images.
Adam Opel, the company's founder raced the rocket-powered RAK 2 reaching a top speed of 140 mph. For 1928, this speed was quite impressive. This last information was just in case you were wondering about the origin of the concept's name.
The model is a full electric vehicle that has an electric motor able to deliver 49 PS and 14 PS of continuous power. The RAK e features a 5kWh battery that at a full charge offers a 60 miles range. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 13 seconds and can reach a top speed of 75 mph.
The target customers are actually the young ones who are looking for an affordable urban electric vehicle that has zero CO2 emissions. This car is actually perfect for city use at it only weights 380 kg and has a 5.5 meter turning circle.
The car was built on a steel spaceframe chassis out of conventional synthetic materials. The RAK e features a two seat cockpit that's covered by a canopy. For an easy access, the front seat, steering column and armrests tilt forward via a Smartphone. The model features wheel-integrated front disc brakes and also a rear swing-arm.
The carmaker doesn't have any plans of putting this model into production, for now.
