Meet the two-wheeled future of MINI! Following hot on the heels of the Countryman and the Moke comes this - a plug-in electric scooter concept that premiered at the Paris Motor Show, and go head-to-head with a similar concept produced by rivals Smart.
Called the MINI E Scooter Concept, the bike features scaled down versions of all the classic MINI design cues, including the large iconic speedometer, oval wing mirrors and squared off rear lights. The use of chrome and other material is also designed to make the scooter instantly recognisable as a part of the MINI family.
The grey and luminous green colour scheme is borrowed from the MINI E electric car, and so is the drivetrain: a single electric motor is integrated into the rear wheel, and power comes from a compact lithium-ion battery stored under the seat. The battery can be charged from any standard A/C power outlet, via a retractable cable at the back of the scooter.
If the E Scooter receives a positive reaction at the show, then there is a strong possibility that it could make production, and become the smallest MINI yet!
