Stunning Electric InEco Concept Coupe to Debut at 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show; Weighs Under 2,000 Pounds (w/videos)
The InEco Concept could quite possibly be our electric of choice if it were to be produced.
It looks stylish, especially from the side and it’s what an electric ought to be: lightweight, efficient, fun-to-drive, quick and with acceptable range.
If a perfect electric were to ever exist, it would be done in the mold of the InEco.
InEco is the work of Dresden University, Leichtbau-Zentrum Sachsen GmbH and ThyssenKrupp AG.
It makes use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and steel hybrid composites to keep weight in check. The curb weight of InEco is only 1,984 pounds.
InEco zips from 0 to 62 mph in 7.5 seconds thanks to its reasonably powerful 121 HP electric motor. Top speed is listed at 100 mph.
Range is claimed to be around 87 miles depending on conditions, though we aren’t sure of the capacity of its battery pack.
The InEco Concept will make its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, but we don’t expect it to move from concept to production anytime soon.
