There's a pattern developing in Frankfurt: first it was Audi's sharp Urban EV concepts, then came Volkswagen's Nils - a single-seater EV with the same open-wheeler formula. Today, Opel's RAK e concept ups the ante.

The RAK e (likely named in homage to the company's RAK rocket vehicles of the early 20th century) is an all-electric concept that Opel reckons could revolutionise urban transport.

Described as an ideal choice for younger drivers "and those on a very tight budget," the RAK e is designed to carry two occupants in a tandem layout.

Technical details haven't been released, although Opel says its latest concept offers a driving range of around 100 kilometres, and a top speed of 120km/h.

Despite talking up its production potential, it remains to be seen if Opel will push the RAK e to production. If nothing else, the concept's Ampera-inspired face suggests that a new company look is in the works.
