Rocks-e is 2.41 meters long, weighs 471 kg and has a 5.5 kWh battery pack. You can fully charge the battery at home in 3.5 hours, but you can also charge it at a public charging station via an adapter.
The top speed of the Rocks-e is 45 km/h and the WLTP range is 75 km/h. So this two-seater is not a full passenger car; It is mainly intended for city traffic. Getting in and out is made easier with doors that open in different directions.
“With the best charging infrastructure in Europe and many urban areas, the Netherlands offers the perfect climate to make the Opel Rocks-e a success,” says Opel. The manufacturer left in August last year Rock canvas-e. It offers space for two people and there is 63 liters of luggage space in the footwell on the passenger side. The cargo areas behind the seats are intended for sports or shopping bags.
A city car is actually a Citroen Amic (a brand that also belongs to the Stellantis group). Opel has developed its version with a revised strip on the LED daytime running lights, its own brand decals and different wheel covers.
Citroën currently has no plans to bring its own version, the Ami, to the Netherlands. An Opel spokesperson confirms that the price of the Rocks-e will in any case be less than 10,000 euros. That seems logical, because in Germany it is already on the price list from 7,990 euros.
The small Opel can be customized with Klub and Tekno versions. These hippie sound names include a gray body with black stripes on the sides.
For Klub, gray is the main theme of Rocks-e, Tekno adds yellow. skid plates under the bumpers. Opel extends these color schemes to the interior, with inserts around the instrument panel and center console in gray or yellow depending on the version.
LED lighting and a panoramic roof are standard on all trim levels. A smartphone holder in the center console, where your own phone serves as an infotainment system, is available on Klub and Tekno.
After Germany, the Netherlands is Rocks-e’s second market. Opel will announce the exact price and premiere date at a later date.
