Exchanging the passenger seat of the Opel Rocks-e for a cargo compartment has given the Opel Rocks-e Kargo a 400-litre cargo capacity.

30 Mar 2022 | International News : Germany

Opel has revealed a new, commercial variant of the Rocks-e.

Called the Opel Rocks-e Kargo, the car comes in at only 2,410mm long, 1,390mm wide and 1,520mm tall, allowing it to squeeze through the narrowest of alleyways, which should come in handy in the older districts of the cities of Germany and Italy.

A cargo compartment takes the place of the passenger seat in the Opel Rocks-e, swelling total cargo area to a respectable 400 litres
In spite of its compact dimensions, there's still up to 400-litres of cargo carrying capacity, making it Opel Rocks-e Kargo more than capable of delivering pizzas, parcels, or medicine to multiple addresses at once.

This has been achieved by abandoning the passenger seat found in the two-seat Rock-e. In its place in the Rocks-e Kargo is a modular cargo compartment, separated from the driver's cockpit by a vertical wall. Opel states that drive comfort is not compromised whatsoever with the modification, with the vehicle offering the drive the same amount of space as before.

Delivery drivers will be able to access this cargo compartment via the passenger-side door. Access to cargo from the inside of the Opel Rocks-e Kargo is also catered for via a opening on the top section of the cargo compartment.

The top cover of the cargo area sports a recessed section for easy storage of delviery notes or a tablet
This top section is also slightly recessed, allowing easy storage of any delivery notes or a laptop or tablet. It is also able to support a weight of up to 40kg, allowing it to be used as a work surface thanks to its anti-slip surface.

And if needed, this cover can also be completely removed and stowed behind the driver's seat, making it possible to transport larger and taller objects.

As with the Opel Rocks-e, the Opel Rocks-e Kargo has a maximum power output of 12bhp and a 75km WLTP range. Charging the vehicle's 5.5kWh battery is only possible via a domestic three-pin outlet, for which a 3m-long charging cable is provided with the car. Charging here will take a claimed four hours.
