The BamBoo concept actually features bamboo wood in its construction
Almost without fail, the Swiss tuning company Rinspeed unveils a new oddball concept at every Geneva Motor Show. At the 2011 show it was the turn of the Rinspeed BamBoo to make its presence felt.

The Rinspeed BamBoo was an electric powered vehicle which, in the words of Rinspeed is "a grown-up golf cart".

Rinspeed are obviously quite proud of their little creation. However their explanation of the BamBoo concept borders on the absurd. To read it you'd think they'd solved world hunger or created a perpetual motion machine. The best bit of the press release is this little gem of a paragraph:

"This open-top vehicle awakens the longing for sun, summer, for lightness and easiness, the desire to be at the beach. It is a reminiscence of the Seventies, of the south of France and St. Tropez. And one would expect to find Brigitte Bardot behind the wheel with playboy Gunther Sachs at her side heading towards Tahiti beach."

Perhaps if Brigitte and Gunther had fallen on hard times - and also lost their sight - this fanciful scenario might occur.

In-between the endless sycophantic praise of Rinspeed's boss, Frank Rinderknecht, and the optimistic portrayal of the BamBoo as a wondrous vehicle which will enlighten mankind, there are limited facts on the vehicle.

Firstly, it's electric powered. Secondly, some bits of the interior are made from bamboo. And thirdly, the rear seats are inflatable and can be removed for use outside the vehicle.
