Mini and Smart - e-scooters
14 September 2010 - PARIS: Smart and MINI are thinking of making electric scooters, and they have drawn up concepts that will be shown at the Paris Motor Show. Details are sketchy in the literal sense of the word. Both car makers have only offered sketches of their bikes at this stage.
Along with a few sketches of the concept electric model, MINI has revealed plans of showcasing the scooters in three different trims. One will even feature a design similar to the MINI E project, their plug-in electric Cooper.
No other details about the scooter have been released, but speculation has pointed to the use of lithium ion batteries in MINI’s bikes.
Similarly, apart from a few sketches of their scooter concept, Smart has revealed very little of its electric concept. We’ll definitely keep you updated as more information is released at the Paris show. Look after the jump for more pictures.
