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 came to LA with a lot to show-off. The new Citysurfer concept, the US debut of the Superleggera concept and the US debut of the new four door hatch. They also had a few interesting things to say as well. Check it out after the break. 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.
The 2010 Paris Motor Show was a big event for scooter lovers and gadget nerds alike. It saw a number of futuristic design explorations, and two in particular were of note for scooter fans. Both Smart and MINI each came to the show with a small-frame scooter concept. Both machines were electric, both were futuristic in their design, and both inspired considerable enthusiasm from fans of their respective brands.
This is a pretty recent share on YouTube, but we’re not sure when it was produced. If it’s leftovers from the Paris Motor Show, then that’s still cool, but if it’s actually new content around the Scooter E then does that mean we’re on the road toward production? You’ll know when we know.
We love seeing new production and concept vehicles from the clever folks at MINI. Last month’s Paris Motor Show saw the reveal of the MINI Scooter E and the Countryman WRC race car. But can there be too much of a good thing? According to Autocar, Design leads Gert Hildebrand and Adrian van Hooydonk say yes. In fact, they’ve got more fun stuff to show us in the future, but they’re giving us all a chance to “get used to” the current crop of new MINIs, especially the Countryman, before we see anything else. continued →
With a few of us covering BMW racing for a title in ALM this weekend at the Petit LeMans, we couldn’t quite make it to Paris this week to cover MINi at the Mondial de l’Automobile. However we’ve still got you covered. We’ve partnered with Kilometer Magazine to bring you exclusive photos of of everything MINI at the show. Enjoy.
And for a look at the show in it’s entirety head over to Kilometer.
