MINI E Electric Scooter Concept to be unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 9, 2010

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.

In an imaginative expression of the MINI brand, the Paris Motor Show 2010 revealed the new MINI Scooter E Concept to the world; and it’s grabbing people’s attention. The design of the scooter has remained faithful to the look and feel of the MINI cars.

Without having seen the scooters before, you will be hard pressed not to recognise the MINI brand. Smooth lines and bubbled edges remind us of MINI cars but with 11 inch rims, the Mini Scooter also makes a bold statement and scooter riders everywhere are listening.

The scooter looks charming, durable, powerful and ready to roam. Just with a glance, it is obvious that this vehicle represents the MINI brand in both colour and feel.

Furthermore, the scooter windscreen mirrors, the MINI car windscreen, and the contours defining the front and rear of the vehicle remind us of the MINI car front and rear contouring. The next step is to see whether the concept scooter can make it to the production line.
