The iChange can alter its size and shape to suit the passenger load
The Rinspeed iChange is yet another imaginative concept to come from the Swiss tuning company and design centre headed up by Frank Rinderknecht. The iChange was one of the concept vehicles displayed at the 2009 Geneva Motor show.

The iChange, like many previous Rinspeed concepts is a vehicle which answers questions which haven't been asked. The iChange is a proposal for a versatile vehicle which can alter its cabin size and aerodynamic profile to suit the passenger load. When there is just the driver to cater for the roofline sits lower, however when either or both of the two rear seats are occupied the roof can be raised with the touch of a button.

The roof also acts as the only point of access to the car. During entry and exit it opens by lifting forward and up - the hinge is located at the base of the windshield. Once inside the occupants are met with a lavish entertainment system which includes a Harman Kardon GreenEdge high-efficiency sound system, touch screen control panels, LCD televisions, 3D navigation system which searches for the most economical route, and an Apple iPhone interface for starting the iChange and controlling the vehicles main functions.

Powering the iChange is a 150kW electric motor which is fed by lithium-ion batteries available in two different configurations for either short distance performance driving, or long distance economical travel. This powertrain (depending on battery) is capable of taking the iChange to 60 mph in just over four seconds, and on to a top speed of 137 mph (220 km/h). This performance is made possible with the help of a six-speed pre-selector gearbox from the Subaru WRX.
