Eliminating the traditional barriers between car and motorcycle design, the RAK e seats two and offers maximum driving pleasure with zero emissions.
Superbly aerodynamic yet intriguingly muscular and stable in aspect, the new Opel RAK e brings low cost electric mobility to the city. Outstanding features include:
The jet fighter theme extends the length of the sleek, tinted bubble canopy. This lifts forward to enable access to the two tandem seats further reinforcing the aircraft similarity. Other features include:
The rear profile effortlessly matches the dynamics of the front and side views. Highlights include:
Imagine putting 100 km behind you for just 1 Euro. Doing it in a sleek, jet aircraft inspired shape, being able to park virtually anywhere and all with zero vehicle emissions. That’s the reasoning behind the Opel RAK e. The lithium ion technology of the Ampera is the natural starting point to achieve this.
Approach the RAK e and the canopy lifts at the touch of a button to reveal two comfortably supportive tandem seats. The race derived steering wheel lifts automatically to make getting in and out easy. Your smartphone slots into a purpose designed holder, keeping you effortlessly in touch and playing your favorite sounds whenever and wherever. It is snug, comfortable and supremely easy to drive.
Explore more thoroughly and you’ll find that lightweight materials and advanced build techniques have kept the weight to just 380 kg. This not only reduces the amount of power needed, but when combined with the superbly aerodynamic shape it significantly increases the usage times and distances possible.
The result is that the Opel RAK e boasts an impressive top speed of 120 km/h and a range of up to 100 km, enabling much more than just the daily commute to and from work. It also brings the possibility of electric power to learner drivers. In certain countries, with the maximum speed regulated to 45 km/h, it can be driven by 16 year olds.
In an age where rocketing fuel prices, legislation and ever more crowded city streets are robbing the last few ounces of pleasure from driving, the Opel RAK e stands out as a bright light in the gathering gloom.
