Rinspeed iChange – Electric Sports Car with iPhone Key
Chances are that you’ve left the house without your keys.
Chances are that you’ve never forgotten your iPhone.
Well, under this premise Rinspeed should be onto a winner.
Say, “I want” to the Rinspeed iChange concept.
This cool car can adapt itself to accommodate a varying number of passengers depending on the need of the driver.
So, if you have friends or not, or want a single-seater sports number at the weekend as well as doing school runs during the week – this will fit all criteria 🙂
Back to the iPhone stuff: The car is actually controlled by an iPhone!
No need for a key.
This streamlined one-seater sports car transforms into a comfortable car with ample room for three.
Just press a button and the rear end of the slippy-shaped car magically pops up.
The iChange is green as well as cool: It’s powered by an electric motor mated to lithium-ion batteries available in two different stack configurations, one for short- and one for long-distance.
Both choices will apparently be charged by any electric power source including solar!!!!!
The motor produces 150kW, giving the car a top speed of 220 km/h (137 MPH) and a 0-to-100 km/h (0-to-62 MPH) time of slightly more than four seconds â€” thanks to a six-speed gearbox borrowed from the Subaru WRX.
And we know how good the WRX Scoobies are! 🙂
Did I say I wanted one already? 😉
