Concept of the Day: Rinspeed Dock+Go

February 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

Swiss automotive think-tank Rinspeed always has a great concept at the Geneva Motor Show, and this year’s is particularly clever and timely. The Dock+Go is based on the Smart Fortwo ed, and showcases bolt-on modules for load-carrying, commercial cargo space – or an ‘energy pack’, containing a range-extender engine, additional batteries or a fuel cell. The ‘docked’ third axle drives the rotating second axle, and recharges the standard on-board batteries as it does so. This grid-networked ‘Variohybrid’ pack can also act as an auxillary external power source for camping/outdoors situations, or even for the owner’s home. More details from Rinspeed.
