Take an electric Smart and put it in the hands of Frank M. Rinderknecht, the founder of Rinspeed, and is here is the result... The Dok+Go to be presented in Geneva this year.
Yesterday morning, Smart revealed the For-Us an electric pick-up
designed for the Detroit Auto Show, Rinspeed went further by giving to the For Two six wheels on three axles, and an extra cargo volume: a backpack for Smart
as M. Rinderknecht says.
You simply dock it to the back of your car, and the Dok + GB can transform your city car into an utility with specific fonctions depending on your needs, but mostly it can feature a range extender for the Smart Ed thus allowing longer journeys. Called Vario-Hybrid, this technology, can be powered by a combustion engine used as a generator or via a fuel cell.
This solution could be adapted to a lot of electric cars, but is presented here on a Smart which is a particularly appropriate vehicle…
