Mini Scooter E – BMW electric scooter concept combines style and twee social networking


This Mini Scooter E concept from car maker BMW is the company’s new take on eco-transport. The scooter sports a rear wheel electric motor, an on-board charging cable stowed in a rear compartment and an innovative security system. Basically your smartphone is the key. Plug it into the console socket and the thing will start up.

The phone also operates an integrated Bluetooth powered entertainment and communications system, as well as a rather twee sounding social networking application based around Google Maps and other Mini Scooter E riders. Friend me, fellow traveller?

Top it off with a quirky styling ethic and you’ve got an interesting, but no doubt pricey, alternative to the current crop of budget priced Chinese electric scooters on the market.

 This facilitates a feature similar to social networking on the internet in which riders who are friends can be identified and invited to come together on a whim simply by pressing a button. An automated full-beam headlight function that operates when two vehicles meet has also been developed for the MINI Scooter E Concept to further strengthen the community appeal and highlight the friendly and open-minded personality of this vehicle.

  • Well, that’s going to be good for those who want to buy micro scooter for their son. I love my son and going to buy one for them on their birthdays. Thanks.
