Opel Rocks-e Kargo EV, for last-mile deliveries, goes official
German automaker Opel has revealed its Rocks-e Kargo quadricycle in Europe. Its bookings will commence there later this year. As for the highlights, the vehicle bears a quirky look and has a spacious cabin with a cargo volume of more than 400 liters. It is fueled by an electric powertrain and promises a range of 75km on a single charge.
- The Rocks-e Kargo is the latest addition to Opel's Sustainable Urban Mobility (SUM) vehicle family and serves as a rebadged version of the Citroen My Ami Cargo.
- The vehicle is ideal for emission-free last-mile deliveries and should attract a lot of buyers in the Old Continent. However, it is unclear whether this EV will make its way to our shores.
The Opel Rocks-e Kargo sports a sleek gray-colored grille, round headlights, DRLs, and a prominent bumper. It is flanked by two doors, round ORVMs, flared wheel arches, and designer wheels. Circular taillamps and "ROCKS" lettering grace the rear end. As for the dimensions, the vehicle is 2,410mm long, 1,520mm tall, and 1,390mm wide. It also has a small turning radius of just 7,200mm.
The Opel Rocks-e Kargo packs an electric motor linked to a 5.5kWh battery that can be fully charged in around four hours. The powertrain puts out a maximum power of 12hp and allows the vehicle to deliver a range of 75km on a single charge.
The Opel Rocks-e Kargo has a spacious cabin with an adjustable loading floor, that permits storage of objects of up to 1.2 meters long. A payload of up to 140kg can be transported. A single-seat and a flat-bottom steering wheel are available inside. However, a touchscreen infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster are sadly not on offer.
Opel will disclose the pricing and availability details of the Rocks-e Kargo quadricycle in Europe at the time of its launch. Meanwhile, its bookings will open in Germany and the Netherlands in late 2022.
