Rinspeed Dock+Go Concept: new photos released

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 21, 2012

Rinspeed uses new images and videos to give the public a clearer idea of what its “backpack on wheels" concept is about before it makes its debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6. This is a major improvement over its previous release of two pictures of the model. The Rinspeed Dock+Go Concept is based on a two-seater electric smart fortwo that has received a docking station at the rear so that it could carry an additional battery pack or more cargo.

This innovation with the docking station is how the axle linked to the third row of wheels charges the battery so that the electric smart could get a longer range on one charge. This third axle also drives the rotating second axle so that the smart's onboard battery could be recharged too. This docking station is available in several pack types depending on the user's needs.

Rinspeed made one that’s meant to be a Pizza delivery vehicle and so it gets a built-in isothermal box. In addition, Rinspeed presented a pack that converts the smart car into a pickup truck. However, it’s probable that the option that will get the most interest is the sound pack. Harman, a multimedia and infotainment specialist, installed a high-end sound solution that’s sure to appeal to the younger crowd. Rinspeed has prepared separate videos for these packs.
