Earlier today we told you about the Smart Electric Scooter Concept which will be unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, but it seems that things will not stop here with the premieres from the French capital. MINI, owned by Bmw AG, will also unveil a plug-in scooter concept at this year’s auto show in Paris. Dubbed MINI E Scooter Concept, it is expected to feature the MINI design cues, including the large speedometer found on the MINI cars, oval wing mirrors as well as squared off rear lights.
The concept will be recognizable due to the chromed accessories and other materials. The colour scheme chose for this concept will be grey and luminous, found also on the MINI E electric car and as expected, it will be powered by an electric motor integrated into the rear wheel.
The power comes from a lithium-ion battery stored under the seat, and sources confirm the fact that the scooter can be charged from any standard A/C power outlet and via a retractable cable found at the back of the scooter.
MINI is preparing two different interpretations of the scooter concept at the Paris Motor Show and if the feedback received will be positive, then expect a production version soon!
“Ever seen a MINI on two wheels? Be the first to see an electric vision of the future as urban mobility by MINI takes a new direction. Keep your eyes open for the world premiere at the Paris Motor Show 2010,” said MINI in an official statement.
