MINI’s Citysurfer is an interesting concept that promises to increase flexibility for individual mobility for young drivers. The Citysurfer Cocnept combined the properties of a kick scooter with an electric drive and a stylish design, which is a signature of the British premium brand.
With a total weight of just 18 kg (40 lbs), the Citysurfer Concept is easy to transport and perfectly fits in the luggage compartment of the new 2014 MINI Cooper. Moreover, it comes with a thumb-operated accelerator as well as a gearless hub motor located in the rear wheel.
The concept uses a lithium-ion battery installed in the frame, which can be charged via a 12-volt automobile socket or any household socket. The Citysurfer Concept offers a range between 15 to 25 km (10-15 miles), while top speed achieved is 25 km/h or 15 mph.
As you can see from the photos, the concept features large wheels wrapped in pneumatic tyres in order to make it comfortable, as well as with three braking systems which operate independently. What’s more interesting is that the Citysurfer Concept features a brake regeneration function.
Protection from dirt and weather is ensured by wheels covers ant the front and rear, while everyday functionality is ensured by the mobile phone holder and charging facility located on the handle bars.
