Electric scooters are for hipsters and city-dwellers who don’t want to pay to own a car in New York. The Mini Scooter E concept vehicle unveiled at the London Design Show is……also for hipsters and frugal city-dwellers.
Designed by the same company who made those adorable little getaway cars from the Italian Job, Mini has engineered an even smaller vehicle, albeit one that runs on electricity, rather than gas.
The Mini Scooter E features an onboard navigation system and utilizes a smartphone as the ignition key. Pretty high-tech for a scooter that was designed to reflect the stylings of scooters from the 1960s.
Hopefully, if these are received well by critics, Mini will throw them into production quickly and capitalize on both the Green movement and nostalgia for simpler, more hap’nin times.
