More renowned for wacky concepts with the emphasis on individualism, Rinspeed has created in the UC? a vehicle – make that “mobility system” – whose goal is to emphasise the collective.

To be exhibited at the Geneva show for the first time, the UC? (Urban Commuter, or simply “You see?”) is a two-seat electric car intended to free up inner-city roads. An advanced railcar loading system will add the option to cover long distances by train.

Adding to the little runabout’s mobility credentials, a mobile carport with integrated battery charging station can be booked via the Internet. Creator Frank M Rinderknecht describes the UC? concept as a “highly emotional Web-based car world that interweaves individual and public transport in an intelligent way. We want to create a community of people who are open for a new definition of mobility”.

High-level talks about production are said to be under way.
