Rinspeed has unveiled its Rinspeed iChange Concept at the Geneva International Motor Show, as styled and constructed by renowned automotive jack-of-all-trades Frank M. Rinderknecht and his team of designers.
Rinspeed “iChange” concept -- a “1-2-3-seater” powered by a 130kw-electric motor – features a stunning body structure that adapts to the number of passengers using “electronic trick-tail.” The concept car could only seat the driver but it may accommodate two more passengers once its rear end rises to transform it from a sports car into a compact sportsvan.
This variable vehicle from Rinspeend and Rinderknecht is aimed at offering thought-provoking products for the auto industry. Rinderknecht remarked that the iChange concept is an extremely flexible vehicle, considering variability and the constantly changing energy demand.
Their endeavor has resulted to the creation of a zero-emission car with an extremely low weight and aerodynamic drag, which had lowered its power consumption.
Rinderknecht quipped that the name “iChange” means an effort on the part of consumers to change how they view cars and to preserve individual mobility in the future, highlighting a need to accommodate the ecological aspects. Thus, Rinderknecht said, the carmakers' reply for the “iChange” would be a strong “Yes, we can!”
