  1. The problem with this “car” is unfortunately again the limitation to 45km / h. So you can not even in traffic with swimming. The appearance can be argued. But honestly which 15 year old has a few thousand euros for this car. At the latest when he is 18 is replaced by a real car.

  2. We need more emission-free city cars, which should be able to swim in the current traffic of 50 to 60 km / h. Even the mopfas are at 45 km / h obstacles, which are dangerously overtaken for all parties involved. The legislature provokes accidents.
    Why is such a mobile not a good reach, good acceleration and a speed matching for the city?

  3. Never bring the such thing …, Opel has always great again great ideas but also little courage. Had the Opel Rak E presented the Opel Rak E presented so 10 years ago, I would have exchanged the “big” immediately against our smart roadster.
    Nobody needs a 45 km / h of traffic impact, but may be that you can already know that at Opel in terms of max. 30 km / h in all inner cities.

  4. In this price segment Badge-Engineering is absolutely useful! Without a Citroen base, this Opel did not exist, so there is the Ami visually suitable for the Opel family, even with mini-vizor. I like it.
