World premiere of the city Streaker ‘the contrarians workshop participants Stromer’ at the start of global navigation global awaited initiative navigation at the start of the initiative on October 6th at the Hockenheimring in a special highlight: the world premiere of the new prototype from HS Genion, Webasto’s subsidiary, from Gilching near Munich. The new electric vehicle, the city runabout STROMER, manufactured in light-weight principle and equipped with many innovative features such as a Monocoquet, was there for the first time presented to the public. The idea to develop of an efficiency-optimised vehicle is created by the current development of gasoline prices, as well as the CO2 discussion. Thus opened up\”a new approach to a market niche for vehicles with electric drive, which can complement the classic car especially in the short-haul traffic, explains Christoph Rosch, Managing Director of HS Genion GmbH. market studies from the 1990s predicted for today, a population of nearly 500,000 electric vehicles. \”But there is no market oriented offer.\” The Stromer closes this gap with current memory technology and a technically solid, visually spectacular body concept that also produce is with very little effort.

In performance, range, and suitability for everyday use, he will exceed all similar small electric vehicles and in this way with regard to the value in the vicinity of the smart move. \”The striking design and driving pleasure given through the central tunnel concept make the Stromer for attractive buyers who consume fun-oriented and thereby claim a social pioneer role\”, so Dipl. industrial designer (FH) Christoph Reichelt, who was instrumental in the design of the new city Streaker. The winners of the iF design award 2006 for the FATH engine handle 280 since graduating to the industrial designer with a focus on vehicle design is constantly working on alternative concepts for the be and simultaneously deals with perception-theoretical and semantic aspects of vehicle design.
