How do you get more mini than a MINI? Try the MINI Scooter E, a new concept to be shown at the which takes the design language of MINI's current line-up and adds a healthy dose of retro styling to create an all-electric two wheeler – a first for the brand. The Scooter E uses an in-hub motor at the rear wheel powered by a lithium-ion battery which is recharged via a conventional socket using an on-board cable. Conventional keys are discarded in favor of a smartphone, which also becomes the display panel when slotted into the integrated dock.
“The MINI Scooter E Concept represents an electric vision of the future as urban mobility takes a new direction by MINI," says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design."The MINI Scooter E Concept is true to our brand values of distinctive design, intelligent functionality and customization and builds further on these characteristics by combining driving pleasure with sustainable technology into the first two-wheel concept of its kind for MINI.”
Iconic British brand MINI unveiled its exciting MINI Scooter E Concept today in London at an exclusive event at the The Vinyl Factory in London. The MINI Scooter E Concept comes almost ten years to the day since the new MINI was first shown at the Paris Motor Show.
