Rinspeed Dock–Go Concept [updated]Mon, 20 Feb 2012
The Rinspeed Dock–Go Concept car, devised by Frank M. Rinderknecht, will make its debut at next month’s Geneva motor show. It adds a 'backpack' to the Smart ForTwo city car, which can be changed depending on the needs of the driver, while a hybrid pack increases the operating range of the vehicle.
The car's exterior is finished in silver with chrome-blue accent striping on both sides based on an electroluminescent 3D-flexible film. This display-based surface replaces the front grille, and the driver can display Facebook pages, news, or simply display the manufacturer's badge.
The interior is dominated by black and red, with high-tech materials providing natural thermoregulation, good insulation and a high capacity for absorbing moisture. The roof is transparent and a 12.1-inch monitor is positioned in front of the driver, part of the infotainment system featuring integration technology for smartphones and a Human Machine Interface (HMI).
The difficulties of parking are removed by the integration of four cameras, giving the driver an increased ability to gauge distances and objects around the car to prevent damage to the exterior.
