Rinspeed UC? to debut at 2010 Geneva Motor Show
At the 80th Geneva Motorshow occasion this year, the Switzerland-based company Rinspeed will exhibit their latest creation – Rinspeed UC?, a wisely designed 100 percent electric vehicle with recyclable body.
Well known for its crazy concept cars, Rinspeed has engineered a small and versatile two-seater powered by an electric motor. The vehicles' name – UC? stands for "Urban Commuter" or "You see?". Measuring only 2.50 meters in lenght, the future urban car is even smaller than a Smart car.
Rinspeed boss Frank M. Rinderknecht: "UC? - it's a new and highly emotional web-based car world that interweaves individual and public transport in an intelligent way. We want to create a community of people who are open for a new definition of mobility."
Totally emissions free, the electric Rinspeed UC? is operated by an innovative central joystick. Its small electric motor is capable to produce 124 Nm of maximum torque, before reaching a V-max of 110 km/h. The car is able to cover a distance of 120 km on a single charge, which is more than enough for a daily city spin. According to Rinspeed, the newcomer is really near to series production and the negotiations with big car manufacturers are already underway.
