Many world premieres awaiting visitors at the Frankfurt Motor Show this year have been shown online for weeks, if not months.

This, of course, reduces the factor of surprise for those guests who are aware of the latest news in the world of cars, but this is exactly what is happening today in the automotive industry. For example, Opel showed the first photos of the all-new Corsa on May 23, and since then we have seen several supermini options, including the rally variation of the Corsa-e EV.

This is actually a concept that is a rally car for the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup, considered the world’s first rally cup for electric cars. Based on the Corsa-e road car, the Opel Corsa-e Rally will replace Adam in the rally stages, with its 136 hp electric transmission. (100 kW / 134 hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of instantaneous torque, sent to the front wheels.

According to the assumptions, the Opel Corsa-e Rally will cost quite less than 50,000 euros (approximately 55,165 US dollars), and is equipped with the same battery capacity of 50 kW / h as a road car, but has many features related to the rally, including suspension, built-in safety cage, electric fire extinguisher, bucket seats, motorsport display with data logger, quick-release mounts for the hood and rear door and much more.
