The Opel RAK-e is probably my favorite concept car. It transportsย two persons in tandem seats. It’s very lightweight and aerodynamic so it doesn’t need a big battery to get a decent range.

For this ultra efficient car, a small 20 kWh battery would be enough for a real world range of 250-300 km. It would also be possible to charge the little battery in less than 10 minutes at a 150 kW CCS fast charger.

At the current price of 150 โ‚ฌ per kWh, the 20 kWh worth of cells would cost no more than 3.000 โ‚ฌ. Opel could sell this electric car for 10.000-12.000 โ‚ฌ.

This electric car would be a hit, especially with younger drivers that don’t even consider buying regular gas cars. This car would also be awesome as a commuter car.

This is the car that would makeย Opel cool like Tesla Motors or Apple. Is the company smart enough to understand it? Unfortunately I doubt it.


I like it so much that I created a fan page to ask Opel to built it…
