The CitySurfer is MINI’s latest attempt providing a broader range of transportation solutions that go beyond the car. And to us it looks like a winner. 10-15 miles on a charger and it fits in a MINI’s boot. It could just be the perfect commuter vehicle if your commute involves multiple modes of transportation. Take a look at the gallery and let us know what you think in the comment section below. continued →

MINI is a transportation company. They solve transportation problems in smart and stylish ways that hold true to the MINI brand. And in this case that doesn’t necessarily mean an automotive solution. Today MINI takes the wraps off of the MINI Citysurfer, a product designed to solve transportation needs of urban dwellers in the most space and fuel efficient way possible while holding true to the kind of fun we expect with MINI products.
What we have here is a 40 lbs electric scooter with a 10-15 mile range that neatly folks to fit in the back of a MINI. Oh, and it looks incredible. Before you get your credit card out, keep in mind that this is a concept and MINI has not yet announced any concrete plans to build it let, alone a time-table. However, unlike MINI’s previous electric scooter concept, this looks entirely plausible from a production standpoint — especially if MINI partners with an existing manufacturer in the space.
The MINI Citysurfer will debut at the LA Auto Show this weekend alongside the Superleggera concept and the entire MINI range. If you’re in the area, check it out and let us know what you think. If not, hit up the comments below and let MINI know if they should build it. Either way, click through and check out the full gallery and official release.

Officially the news is that LA will see the US debut of the MINI five door and Superleggera concept. Unofficially we hear that MINI will be showing something else. Whether it’s a surprise new concept or a variation of a current model we don’t know. But we have our hunches it’s the former. Nevertheless here’s the official company line on what’s coming to LA. As you can see it’s impressive even without this latest rumor. Full official details of the show after the break. continued →
