Opel will unveil a lighweight electic concept car at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. The two-seater One Euro Car is inspired by Ampera and is mostly likely to make it to production. The estimated cost to operate the car per 100 km is only one euro and hence the name ‘One Euro Car’

Opel Lightweight Electric Vehicle:
The One Euro Car
Revolutionary concept for zero-emission urban mobility
Electric driving aged 16 and upward
Inspired by the success of the Ampera, the revolutionary concept creates a new class of lightweight electric vehicle for zero-emission urban mobility.The tandem two-seater has production potential and would also be affordable for younger customers. Sixteen year-olds could even begin driving in a version limited to a maximum speed of 45 km/h. Energy requirements ten times lower than those of a modern small car, and energy costs of only one euro per 100 km, benefit the environment as well the budget.
