#ThrowbackThursday: IBC SOLAR’s first electric car

Today the Geneva Motor Show starts – at least with some electric cars on stage. The future of mobility has moved IBC SOLAR more than 20 years ago. Back than, our founder Udo Möhrstedt already was a pioneer in eMobility. Want to know why?

The picture shows one of five VW Polo’s, which Udo Möhrstedt converted in the early 1990s to electric cars. The last of these IBC Electric Polo’s “retired” in 2015. Up until that time, our boss regularly drove to work in the red car.

The IBC Electro Polo had it all:

  • 60-70 km range
  • Top speed of 100 km / h
  • Travel costs of 4.50 DM per 100 km
  • Consumption: 15 kWh per 100 km
  • Conversion costs: 18,000 DM (kit of electric motor, battery and inverter)
