The MINI Scooter E Concept is quite self explanatory. It's a scooter from MINI - who obviously aren't content with trying to make a MINI car to fit every need, so they've decided to start making stuff with two wheels as well. I just wonder when MINI will start doing a line of large commercial trucks which they'll try and pass off as being quintessentially 'MINI'.

The MINI Scooter E Concept is quite obviously the smallest vehicle ever offered by MINI, but it's also the most environmentally friendly thanks to its zero-emission electric drivetrain. The electric motor, recharging system and lithium-ion battery pack are all located under the seat. All the MINI Scooter E Concept needs is a standard domestic wall socket and it can be recharged.

In the styling department, MINI's designers have tried to make the MINI Scooter E Concept as recognizable as possible. That means the vehicle gets oversize, almost cartoonish styling elements - like the headlights and turn signals. It also features a smooth rounded seat and bodywork which is not unlike some classic Vespa's.

Like any contemporary gadget, which the MINI Scooter E Concept almost is, it must be compatible with the all-conquering iPhone. Therefore inside the scooter's instrument panel is a a snap-in adapter which allows a smartphone to be used as the key, display and central control element. MINI say: "This also offers scope for integrating infotainment, communication and navigation functions in a two-wheeler. While the scooter is in motion, the Smartphone can be used as a navigation system, music player or telephone as required. A wireless Bluetooth interface can be connected to a helmet from the MINI Collection which is fitted with a microphone and headphones so that riders are able to use the telephone function or access their personal music collection while on the road."

Because that's what the congested roads of the worlds cities need: A bunch of moped riders flying around chatting on the phone while listening to the Top 40.

To top it off, the MINI Scooter E Concept is equipped with a system which recognises other MINI Scooters. When the two vehicles pass they automatically flash their high beams at each other. MINI say that this will increase the sense of community spirit between MINI Scooter riders... Well that's one take on it.
