The German carmaker Opel presented the first SUM. The new Opel Rocks-e stands for Sustainable Urban Mobility. The entry-level electric vehicle is the answer to current mobility requirements, offering electric mobility with protection from wind and rain – progressive, bold and pure, typically Opel: in tune with the zeitgeist. It can already be driven in Germany by young people from 15 years of age with the AM driving licence1. With the 2.41-metre short two-seater, Opel continues its electrification offensive. The entry-level price for the new Opel Rocks-e in Germany will be clearly less than for a small car and the monthly leasing cost will be similar to that of a ticket for local public transportation. The Rocks-e will be available to order online or directly at selected Opel dealers from autumn 2021 onwards in Germany – additional markets are planned to follow in 2022. The German carmaker is expanding its model portfolio with a battery-electric SUM vehicle below the Corsa-e that nearly any driver can afford, from young beginners to urban commuters.
The new Opel Rocks-e is simply different; a stylish, emissions-free small vehicle for two that requires little space in towns. Best of all, the Rocks-e is just 2.41 metres long, 1.39 m wide (without exterior mirrors) and weighs only 471 kilograms (incl. traction battery), which means it is officially classified as a light motor vehicle. The 5.5 kWh battery of the Opel Rocks-e can be fully recharged in around 3.5 hours via any standard household socket. The accompanying three-metre-long charging cable is permanently housed in the SUM and simply pulled out of the passenger door when needed. Opel offers an adapter for charging at a public charging station. In Germany teenagers as young as 15 years1 are allowed to drive it with driving licence class AM. A corresponding amendment has come into force in 2021 that means this regulation now applies throughout Germany. The legislator thus supports the mobility needs of young people, especially for the way to school or place of study. The new Opel Rocks-e is perfectly suited for this job.
Opel’s smart entry-ticket to electric mobility offers a range of up to 75 kilometres according to WLTP2, which can be covered at up to 45 km/h. This makes it ideal for everyday city traffic – not only for young drivers, but also for those who want to commute emissions-free and don’t want to spend a long time looking for a parking space at their destination. The 14-inch wheels and turning circle of only 7.20 m make the Rocks-e ideal for the city, mastering tight corners and fitting into small parking spaces. The cockpit meets the requirements of the modern young generation: clear and focused on the essentials. The display shows speed, driving mode (Drive, Neutral, Reverse), battery state of charge, remaining range and mileage at a glance. Practical details include the smartphone holder located on the centre console. Services such as the “myOpel” app provide further practical information.
Inside, the two seats are offset to each other so that the front passenger has comfortable legroom and the driver can move their seat lengthwise. Headroom is ample, even for people more than 1.90 m tall. In addition, despite its compact dimensions, the new Rocks-e offers a luggage volume of up to 63 litres in the passenger footwell, plus a smart hook for an XXL-size shopping bag. The name “Rocks” has tradition at the German carmaker. Until quite recently the Opel ADAM Rocks and Opel KARL Rocks added their own special flair to the brand – distinctively equipped, with cool-looking off-road extras and therefore ready for the day-to-day drive through the urban jungle. The new Opel Rocks-e is even more adapted to use in towns and cities. Purely electric, emissions free and almost silent, the new model is good for the conscience as well as the environment. The Rocks-e is available in three distinctive equipment lines: as Opel Rocks-e, Opel Rocks-e “Klub” and Opel Rocks-e “TeKno”.
