The new 100% electric pocket-sized city car, Opel Rocks-e, will be produced in Morocco
Opel, the Stellantis Group’s automotive brand, has announced the international launch of its new Rocks-e model, a new 100 percent electric pocket-sized city car created in partnership with the Africa Technical Facility, the Group’s research and development center in Casablanca.
The Citroen Ami and the Opel Rocks-e are relatively similar. It’s built in the center of the Stellantis facility in Kénitra, which also makes the Peugeot 208 and Citroen Ami.
It’s a lightweight, all-electric quadricycle with seating for two people. It will be available in Germany starting in the autumn of 2021.
In terms of design, the changes between it and the Citroen Ami are minor. To keep costs down, the Rocks-e has identical front and rear panels, as well as asymmetrically opening doors.
Its appearance and interior customization, on the other hand, set it apart from the tiny Citroen.
The machine has a range of 75 kilometers and a peak speed of 45 kilometers per hour.
This makes it an excellent model for everyday city traffic, not only for young drivers, but also for anybody who wants to travel pollution-free and doesn’t want to waste time looking for a parking place in their area.
