Model: Trabant nT Concept
Availability: Not determined
Price: Not determined
The Trabant nT is the new, fully electric model of the Trabant, or "Trabie," one of the most widely used cars in the former East Germany. The original Trabant, first manufactured 52 years ago in the town of Zwickau, was known for both its simplicity and tendency to spew smoke. The new Trabant nT is a concept car developed by the small German firm IndiKar, which is seeking investors for the project. With a simultaneously classic and futuristic design somewhat reminiscent of the popular Mini, it reaches a maximum speed of 130 kilometers per hour (81 mph) and is powered by a lithium-iron battery that allows for a maximum range of 160 kilometers (100 miles) per charge.
