Announces Powerful New iChange Hybrid Sports Car Concept

hullabaloo in the past several has been made about tuner Rinspeed’s new dedicated model that could see the Rinspeed iChange. Just the in a series of electric-propelled sports car the Rinspeed iChange has more its share of tricky show car to differentiate itself from the

The iChange’s most innovative comes in its ability to morph a single-seat road-ready sports car what Rinspeed calls a 3 sports van. Something is lost in translation from the German in calling the iChange a van, but nonetheless the iChange can either one or three passengers on configuration.

When in multipassenger it sports a 1+2 seating configuration to that of the McLaren F1. The best is that the iChange seating change can be made electronically at the of a button. Like the remote and door unlock functions, the uses an Apple iPhone to the Rinspeed iChange in its body

In reality, there are no doors at The entire front section of the lifts off when it is given the command, allowing driver and easy entry.

As all the new electric car concepts go, the Rinspeed iChange nothing too exciting in the power Due to current limitations in lithium ion electric car manufacturers have not yet out how to build a battery that can real sports car horsepower still providing adequate

The Rinspeed iChange has a stellar time of just 4.2 seconds all the way up to a top of 220 km/h, but the range reported in specifications is a pathetic 90 km, rendering looks like an exciting sports car essentially useless on the until something can be done electric car battery technology.

an eye on Rinspeed and the iChange, as the German powerhouse has the knowhow and the funding to off some wonderous things as sports car technology improves.

Rinspeed iChange Alters its — and Automotive Thinking

Rinspeed Press Release

Switzerland — World at the Geneva Motor Show (March 5th-15th): The Swiss powerhouse Rinspeed presents the the world’s first car whose adapts to the number of passengers on For Rinspeed boss Rinderknecht the is more than just a concept car. The iChange is a for the fundamental changes the auto undergoes worldwide.

And it is clear only those companies survive that have answers for the demands of a new automotive The visionary Rinderknecht is convinced the days of gas-guzzling behemoths are to an end: The „iChange is a signal for the global changes to individual We need to be ready to meet challenges with new ideas.

In a streamlined one-seater sports car into a comfortable car with room for three. The trick: At the of a button the rear end of the teardrop-shaped car pops up. We have designed and an extremely flexible vehicle.

In it we brought the themes of versatility and changing energy demands to logical conclusions. The result is a lightweight zero-emission car with reduced energy consumption.

The idea behind the ‘iChange:’: The demand of a vehicle depends on its weight, the type of engine it and its aerodynamic properties. The engineering-services Esoro that traditionally Rinspeed concept cars has an extremely lightweight car weighing in at 1’050 kilograms. To power the the Swiss specialists chose an motor.

The idea of the pop-up end was conceived to account for the sizeable aerodynamics play in fuel

While other cars have to ferry around puffed-up exteriors that can up to seven passengers even if just transporting a single the „iChange features an adaptive The sole driver is conveyed in a car that offers optimal properties and thus minimized consumption. If more than one need to be transported the expanding provides room for two passengers.

As a of the increased weight and no longer aerodynamics the energy consumption — but only for the time are actually on board.

The energy for the motor comes from batteries that are available in two stack configurations for short- and driving. The electric motor of the produces 150kW, capable of the car to a top speed of 220 km/h. The sprint rest to 100 km/h takes slightly over four This impressive performance is possible with the help of a pre-selector gearbox from the WRX car.

The central research of Siemens AG (Corporate Technology, CT) the integration technology for engine/generator, and battery connection interface. has long been one of the world for energy systems and eco technology pioneering concepts for electric systems. Its products cover the electric value-added chain generation to distribution to consumption. The and drivetrain are lubricated with lubricants from Motorex.

lightweight 17 and 18 forged wheels aerodynamic shrouds are supplied by wheel specialists AEZ. P Zero tires in size in front and size 245/40-18 in provide optimal grip.

An walk-around reveals that the car has no doors. The entire electrically roof section of the car measuring 1.03 meters in height forward to allow passengers to Also gone are such things as a key.

Its role is by an Apple iPhone, which controls the most important functions. The „iChange is drastically than ordinary cars in detail: At the heart of the concept car the groundbreaking next-generation Harman/Kardon system. The system uses an Intel processor technology guarantees minimized power

The same is true for the Harman/Kardon audio system. This technology meets highest on sound quality, weighs less than ordinary and at the same time uses a fraction of energy. This the door to a new dimension of energy The route guidance of the navigation is also especially eco-friendly: The calculates the most energy-saving and displays the directions in realistic 3D

Eberspächer Group from Germany is one of the world leaders in car Specifically for the „iChange project developed custom-tailored electric and heating systems. Both are geared toward the specific and conditions of electric vehicles.

The wool used in the interior was refined into high-tech by Schoeller using state-of-the-art The wool is spun and died in with the highest eco standards. It an extremely extravagant ambiance in the looks stunning and is delicate to the The competence partner Strähle + transformed this natural into a striking interior.

Its character and materiality combine to a symbiosis of shell, firmness and air. Unconventional techniques unusual surfaces. The seams of the are reversed and the removable seats are adorned with the prototype’s Xmobil provided further services. While textiles can be in the „iChange in their original in other areas, they are interpreted on seats and cargo using various refinement such as braiding and gathering and a of both.

Leather strips with technical textiles. The cushions are interchangeable, braided alternates with technical formed into three-dimensional This transfers the adaptive of the „iChange to the interior as well.

The anti-slip floor is supplied by specialist KGS.

The Swiss Ministry for Energy (Bundesamt Energie) supports the „iChange as a groundbreaking research and development Solar panels on the top and sides of the provide electricity to the fan to keep in the „iChange comfortably low on hot summer The large Sharp solar also provide additional charging of the batteries.

With the Rinderknecht, a passionate C. F. Bucherer wearer, and his partners once want to provide food for for the automotive industry. The Swiss car If we want to maintain our individual in the future we have to rethink the car in its without taboos. Most of we have to take its ecological into consideration.

And in the end everyone has to answer the same question: Am I and willing to change myself, do and can change’?

Esoro — Made

Frank M. Rinderknecht highly advanced technology and a network of top automotive specialists for his So the Rinspeed iChange fits to Esoros motto: engineered by — What you dream is you get.

For the tenth time the engineering company Esoro was to serve as general contractor for the project. Esoro was responsible for management, implementation of new technologies, rendering, design and the manufacturing of the iChange. Esoro realized the iChange with the help of its suppliers. Starting with concepts, it took the highly development team just six to realize the entire project.

For 18 now, Esoro has been a developer of concept vehicles, and products with main on lightweight construction and mobility. this time it has gained a reputation for excellent efficiency and solutions, which is demonstrated by prototypes and serial products. develops fiber reinforced from initial conception up to samples. In-house specialists the component properties and characteristics the entire development process.

steps are non-linear, strong Finite Element Analysis and simulation.

Another recent from Esoro is the new E-LFT technology developed for Weber E-LFT makes large production of high-strength and lightweight parts affordable. E-LFT parts weigh more 30 percent less than steel parts. The tailgate of the smart fortwo the first produced E-LFT-component was produced 200’000 times since and received the JEC Innovation Automotive 2008.

Furthermore another process for niche markets, high performance cars, and caravans is now under development at The new and patented process called Embossing offers the possibility to high end thermoplastic composite with low initial invest for and semi-structural applications.

Since the was founded, Esoro has been intensively in the field of conception, and tests of alternative and optimized concepts and drive systems. is thus one of the few companies in the world well-founded experience in development and of electric, hybrid and fuel drives. The Rinspeed iChange impressively this competence cutting edge technology.

shape-changer: a sports car or a sports Rinspeed iChange — ideas on AEZ wheels

The Motor in Geneva is traditionally the place Frank M. Rinderknecht presents his For years he and his company Rinspeed been presenting environmentally-friendly, and extravagant creations, which possible solutions for the future of And now joining him for the third time is: the renowned manufacturer of premium wheels. Following the eXasis and the car sQuba, this time the alloys had to be found for the iChange.

Frohner, the General Manager of said the following: As with the we have created a new wheel, works almost directly on the forging. The task was just as as last year, but also as different. Although the iChange go underwater, it is extremely diverse on and that’s precisely what the intends to demonstrate.

Frank M. Rinderknecht’s latest is actually a vehicle which to diverse conditions: First and thought, the iChange is a thoroughbred, sports car. The AEZ alloys this by looking like the on a classic Bugatti — and suits the streamlined design of the In this form the iChange is a fun car for one but when the rear is raised as if by it changes in the blink of an eye into a sports van for three people.

The spoke wheel also part in the metamorphosis; it fits the wonder like a glove when the focus is shifted to the transportation of people.

Dynamics versatility — that is year’s topic from Rinderknecht says: If we want to our individual mobility in the future, we will have to rethink the car all taboos. That also that the vehicle has to adjust to conditions.

And that explains the iChange. The vehicle concept comprises, of course, the vehicle as it also has to adjust to future As is normal with Rinspeed, protection is in the foreground: an electric with 150kW (204 HP) decent thrust without emissions.

With its large, surface, the wheel from AEZ even better aerodynamics it helps to extend the life-span of the and increase the sports potential of the Designers and technicians at AEZ have and built an expressive, spectacular for an extraordinary car. It represents the so far in the cooperation between the wheel and Rinspeed.

Durability on four Carl F. Bucherer supports the by Rinspeed

For both Frank M. the founder of Rinspeed Concept and Carl F. Bucherer, innovation is the force of all production. So it is not surprising the Lucerne watch manufacturer is the latest of Frank M. Rinderknecht’s the variable Rinspeed iChange. 30 years ago, Frank M. set himself the goal of fulfilling the of his youth and realizing the vision of the motor vehicle with his own car. His company, Rinspeed, created for itself a unique in the tuning and modification of luxury for a financially independent clientele.

In with this, Rinspeed famous for producing concept and series cars. In his partnership international companies in the high-tech Frank M. Rinderknecht actually them with a valuable platform.

Common philosophy, new Cars which can drive on cars which can drive water, cars with bodywork. The concept cars by Frank M. Rinderknecht interpret in a different way. They are the of a person, who quietly goes his own Just as Carl F. Bucherer, of the Lucerne watch brand, to. This was one of the reasons that CEO Morf and Marketing Manager Jufer decided to support M. Rinderknecht and his ideas.

However, an greater influence was the common shared by Carl F. Bucherer and demanding technology, top class and amazing shapes, all contributing to an conceptually convincing final

From the sports car to the van: common philosophy is also in the latest Rinspeed-Project. The iChange is a with a 150kW-e-motor, whose body shape adapts to the of passengers by electronic tail At the touch of a knob, one can convert the person sports car into a sports van for three people, like the motto I change. As as in its design, the iChange reveals its through its extremely low energy the car drives without exhaust and boasts a weight and wind reduced to their minimum.

So the iChange demonstrates a high in the area of durability, which represents part of Frank M. motivation: We have put a flexible on wheels and, in so doing, the of the varied and constantly changing requirements meaningfully thought through, to take the ecological fully into account, the car tinker.

Highest Swiss Innovative thinking, the belief in own way and today’s theme of durability are of the utmost importance for Carl F. components, and explain why the Lucerne manufacturer is collaborating on this with Frank M.

Eberspächer supplies innovative systems for the iChange

As do all electric the iChange from the Swiss house Rinspeed relies on a but economical in-cabin heater: The motor simply does not enough waste heat to use for the passenger compartment. The concept car because of its transformability not only regard to its body, but also regard to heating, and offers two alternatives. The Eberspächer Group headquartered in Esslingen and one of the world’s manufacturers of vehicle heaters developed both a perfectly electric heater and a custom-engineered heater specifically for the iChange

Both systems are designed to the specific requirements of electric

With the electric PTC air heater Eberspächer catem — leader in the field of electric heaters — the iChange is fit for short trips and city The prototype that was developed for the Rinspeed project was designed for a voltage of 580 volts.

With a heating capacity of 5.6 the electric in-cabin heater a high power density in of its extremely compact size: The of 228 x 167 x 36 millimeters mean that the air requires very little for installation. Other benefits: The efficiency — the direct conversion from electric into thermal energy is 99 percent. In addition, no pollutants are during operation of the heater.

As a the PTC heater is ideal for zero-emission intended for use in congested areas to the air clean.Electrical pre-heating of the vehicle by a heating function is also — especially during the process.

For longer trips the Airtronic is the right choice: the fuel-powered heater puts no on the vehicle’s electrical system, the capacity is available entirely for purposes. In this way, the achieves a considerably greater The Airtronic, also designed for the concept car, consumes maximum of 0.43 liters per of heating and has been engineered for the combustion characteristics of the alternative, fuel E-85 ethanol. The 3.5-liter tank disappears behind the license plate. The benefit of the Airtronic is its high efficiency: With an efficiency of 84 — based on the primary input — it excels overall CO2 emissions are taken consideration.

Equipped with a converter and with nitrogen and particulates filtered out to almost the detection limit, the Airtronic not only because of its positive features, but above all because of its heat output. Moreover, the has all the convenience features of a regular park heating: In the winter, the compartment can be pre-heated and ice-covered cleared without the need for

In the iChange, Eberspächer has exemplified two air heating systems for electric Use of electric or fuel-powered water produced by the company is also Integrated in a cooling water these kind of heating are able to pre-heat the sensitive in the winter — holding it of cold starts — and it in the summer.

Besides electric heaters are able to use the waste of power electronics, motor and users for heating proposes and so an overall thermal management.
