This irritating car. It could be that it is the ingenious design creations by renowned New York pop artist James Rizzi. Anyway, Rinspeed, Frank M. Rinderknecht 's latest work Bamboo Concept makes his sun rise on the creatures of metal engineering in the Geneva Motor Show, whose sole purpose is to never touch anything of other than black asphalt. Yes, it's a taste of summer. A taste of salt and sand, ease and lightness in the southern latitudes. It recalls the seventies, in the south of France, Saint-Tropez.

Rinderknecht's latest creation - jointly developed and built by engineering companies and Switzerland 4erC ESOR - looks like a golf cart for adults, at first sight. But it offers a magnificent fireworks of innovation and design. This successful combination is most evident in the roof covered with inflatable Tecnotex developed by the Swiss company. It is covered with water resistant "Chock Skai Neptun" coated nano Hornschuch provided by the Company. It protects the interior from the morning dew is possible.

Thanks to its connectivity to the Internet "Identiface" you can see the Facebook pages of the occupants, news from around the world, the manufacturer's logo or an offer for a trip from A to B. engineering services provider Helveting supported by Zurich Versicherung custom developed "Bamboo Community" platform. The platform also offers other convenient features focused on networks, social sustainability and optimum driving performance.

In combination with the famous color-changing "Rizzi Bird" spin bar (green = I'm alone, blue ='m in a festive, orange = I need a break), creates a whole new way of communicating Automotive beyond deafening noise of the attacks. "Rizzi Bird" rather than flip the bird.

Times with Tablet PCs, smart phones, and residents to ensure the Bamboo Rinspeed and its passengers are always connected to the world. In the long term "bread box" lined with green border Harman JBL cutting-edge design. The world's leading premium sound systems and infotainment focusing on the entertainment system scalable connectivity and the "Aha Radio" application. And in the middle of the hole thrones is the high-voltage electric heater Eberspaecher catem German supplier. Otherwise, start Bamboo Rinspeed boxcutter. Typically Swiss.

With all that life carefully packed technical specifications underlying Rinspeed Bamboo is easily overlooked: the four four-seater is equipped with an electric motor group Frage German (German E-Car) with 54 kW. This high torque motor "in Germany" 1090-kg car accelerates to a top speed of 120 km / h. Lightweight design is doing its part: The steel frame with horizontal shock absorbers carry a rugged composite combined with the use of plastic polymers. Henkel provides structural foam and sealants and adhesives. All this rests on 17 "wheels AEZ three-spoke painted aluminum inserts and ecological Goodyear" EfficientGrip "Energy Conservation tires 17". And range? Battery capacity is enough for 105 km - so much for a fun car for short distances between the hotel, beach and restaurant visits in the evening.
Speaking of the staff: Rinderknecht has also partnered with energy giant RWE, which the station "smart" shows how to load a specialist in innovative infrastructure addresses the issue of e-mobility. Advanced Charger communicates with the car through all boundaries.
