Swiss company Rinspeed is widely famous for their crazy concept cars. Here’s what they’ve come up with for this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

As previewed before, the Rinspeed Dock+Go is based on the smart fortwo. The idea is to create a “backpack on wheels” seeing as the fortwo does not have any space for the passenger’s luggage.

It’s very clever and useful, but kinda ridiculous at the same time. A six-wheeled smart is indeed a funny sight. The third axle is of course on-demand, that’s why it’s called the Dock+Go system. Rinspeed says it’s a great car for business like pizza delivery. You don’t want to go camping with this car, because the smart does not cope well with off-road, or B-roads, or even freeways, especially as it’s the electric version of the car here.

The car is wrapped in silver outer skin from AkzoNobel with a finish that resembles sparkling ice crystals. It ties in with the Goodyear low-rolling-resistance tires in size 205/40-17 mounted on 7.5-inch AEZ rims, whose decorative silver covers are attached to red fasteners with rubber bands. At night the chrome-blue accent striping on either side stands out immediately, developed by Lumitec based on an electroluminescent 3D-flexible film.

The interior is dominated by black and red. The high-tech Schoeller yarns have strong natural thermoregulation, good insulation and a high capacity for absorbing moisture. They keep comfortably warm in winter and remain pleasantly cool in summer. Premium automotive textile manufacturer Gaenslen&Völter spun them into soft, supple upholstery that provides that special feel-good factor.

Rinspeed has always been at making interiors. We have to say we do like this concept. They’ve been thinking outside the box and that’s respectable.
