Opel and KISKA have teamed up to design a fresh new urban commuter, the Opel Rak E concept. This tandem two-seater is designed for light-weight, high efficiency, zero-emission driving on an all-electric drivetrain. On a single charge, the Rak E can travel 61 miles and will re-charge in just three hours. It’s not just the green-minded, city-friendly specs that attract us to the Opel Rak E, it’s the futuristic design philosophy which it embodies.
VENTILE takes everything we know about cars and throws it out of the window. The powertrain starts off innocently enough being a gas/electric hybrid but there’s a third system – a giant fan. Air comes rushing in through the front, spins the fan situated beneath the battery and drives the car. How is this possible? The VENTILE barely weights 350 kg thanks to its translucent, soft shell and small rubberless wheels.
