Opel wants to become the main attraction at the 64th Frankfurt International Motor Show by revealing its new battery-powered EV.
The small two-seater, referred to by Opel as the “One Euro Car,” can travel 100 kilometers (62 miles) for only one euro ($1.41 U.S.). The electric vehicle is also capable of reaching a top speed of 75 mph and has a range of 60 miles.
According to the automaker, the “one euro” car has one-third the weight of a modern small vehicle. Opel also claims that the concept’s look is inspired by the Opel Ampera.
Euro One has production potential and is a perfect vehicle for younger customers. For the future, Opel plans to build a low-speed version for 16 year-olds, limited to a maximum speed of 28 mph (45 km/h).
More information about the One Euro Car are expected to appear at the Frankfurt Motor Show that will open its gates on the 15 and will last until the 25th of September.
