A The electric speedster Opel Rak E, for example, was anything but boring at the IAA. It owes its extraordinary appearance to the two closely spaced rear wheels; the front wheels have a wider track. Another eye-catcher is the windshield, which extends far back and opens completely for entry and exit, including the roof. Two people can be seated one behind the other in the interior. With the unconventional design, Opel is targeting young customers - in the hope that they will be open to electromobility. For this purpose, the tandem two-seater can also be throttled to 45 km /h. A driver of legal age should be able to accelerate the city vehicle up to 120 km /h.

The rear wheels of the Peugeot Velv eco study, which offers space for three people, are even closer together. The eco-mobile, weighing 650 kilograms, is powered by a 20 kW electric motor and is expected to achieve a range of 100 kilometers and a top speed of 110 km /h. Passengers enter the interior via conventional doors, but the side windows are hinged at the top and give the Velv wings when open. So fresh air is assured, take off is rather unlikely.

One-man electric speedster with double doors

What the good word one Heard of a proper design study, the VW Nils has also copied, which not only swings the side windows, but both doors completely open to wings. The electrically operated single-seater is intended for commuting and should weigh just 460 kilograms. The 15 kW electric motor is located behind the driver's seat and provides a range of 65 kilometers and a top speed of 130 km /h. Stop at the supermarket after work? No problem, a crate of drinks and a shopping bag fit into the trunk of the 3.04 meter long and 1.39 meter wide VW Nils.

The models that the Japanese are in this year are more unusual, but also less of a series Tokyo revealed. The Suzuki study Q-Concept is likely to turn around when someone calls out loud 'Hummingbird'; maybe it will even change the color from bright orange to embarrassed deep red. The electromobile lets the semicircular doors swing forward completely unaffected. Then there is space for two people one behind the other, with the driver thanks to the rotatable front seatcan board particularly comfortably. When he arrives at the wheel, he grabs two bars, and the smartphone is docked in the impact pot in between. It establishes the connection between the car and the driver, because there is no additional information display for the operating system in the Q-Concept. Instead, however, two screens arranged on the side, which replace the side mirrors by showing the traffic behind. The 2.5 meter long eco study should provide a range of up to ten kilometers.

Eco study Toyota Fun Vii starts red

If you thought a paragraph before, an embarrassed one Car that turns red is a pipe dream? Then take a look at the Toyota Fun Vii study. Whistle afterwards? Probably not, because if this electrically rolling display would drive past you, you would first stand there in amazement and with your mouth open. The entire outer skin functions as a screen. The driver can use his smartphone to determine what is shown on it - and thus also let his car turn red. But he can also flirt with the nice lady in the car next door by sending a colorful sea of ​​flowers on the outer skin or projecting specific text messages.

The communication of the Toyota Fun Vii does not only work at the driver's command. The electrically powered vehicle automatically warns the driver of traffic jams, dangers and obstacles, communicates with other cars and traffic systems and automatically downloads regular updates. The electric vehicle could also be charged independently by charging it wirelessly using induction technology in parking spaces.
