Vauxhall is the latest manufacturer to outline its future vision for affordable personal urban mobility with this radical concept car at the Frankfurt motor show.
The firm describes the as-yet-unnamed concept as having “production potential”, claiming it could “revolutionise urban transport, especially for younger drivers and those on a very tight budget”.
Details are scarce ahead of its official reveal, but Vauxhall says it features two seats in a tandem layout and is about one-third of the weight of a contemporary small car. The concept’s light weight, claims Vauxhall, makes it “agile and fun to drive”.
The concept is powered by an unspecified electric powertrain. This gives it a claimed range of 60 miles and a 75mph top speed. Vauxhall says this is sufficient to make the concept viable for short motorway journeys.Loose styling inspiration for the concept is taken from Vauxhall’s Ampera extended-range electric saloon, particularly at the front end. One neat design touch is the integration of the door mirrors into the front wings.
