Named Rocks-e Kargo, this emission-free car measures 2,410 mm in length, 1,390 mm in width and 1,520 mm in height. Even though it looks small, Opel Rocks-e Kargo offers a flexible cargo space of more than 400 liters and is able to support a payload of up to 140 kg.
With a turning radius of only 7,200 mm and an electric range of up to 75 km (WLTP1), this German car manufacturer's Sustainable Urban Mobilty (SUM) vehicle is ideal for delivering goods such as parcels, pizza or medicines in urban areas.
What's interesting about Rocks-e Kargo is the two-tone display on the front and rear, as well as the face of the new Opel Vizor brand adorned with LED headlights and LED indicators and an overall design that further underlines the rugged appearance.
More identically, the car's passenger side door swings forward as usual, while the driver's door swings backwards in the opposite direction. The bright and pleasant interior ambiance is provided by the standard panoramic glass roof.
Rocks-e Kargo has only one driver's seat which is equipped with a modular cargo compartment which is separated from the driver's cockpit by a vertical wall. However, the driver still enjoys the same space and driving comfort as in the passenger version.
Drivers can access items stored in the cargo compartment through the passenger door as well as directly from their seat. In addition, the cargo compartment cover board, which can only be lifted in one direction, can support loads of up to 40 kg and also functions as a practical desk.
To make the Rocks-e cargo compartment more flexible, the compartment cover can be completely removed and stored behind the driver's seat. This makes it possible to transport larger and taller objects.
In addition, Rocks-e Kargo has an adjustable loading floor on the passenger side which can be locked at seat height to create two separate compartments that allow for objects up to 1,200 mm long.
The Opel Rocks-e Kargo electric motor delivers 8 hp of continuous power, with a maximum power output of 12 hp. The 5.5 kWh battery can be fully recharged in about four hours via the AC socket. The accompanying 3 meter long charging cable is permanently placed in the vehicle and only pulled out of the passenger door when needed. Opel also offers adapters for charging at public charging stations.
The new Opel Rocks-e Kargo will complete the Opel SUM family later this year and will be available in the German and Dutch markets.
