Mini could expand into scooter market

Mini could be expanding into the scooter market and has revealed the first pictures of the new product ahead of the Paris Motor Show next week.

The electric scooter, which is powered by a lithium-ion battery, is part of a concept study and also highlights Mini’s attention to extend the brand into new areas.

Part of the Scooter E concept features smartphone integration which acts as the key, display and central control element.

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.

The Scooter E comes with an integrated charging cable with a plug that will fit into a domestic socket.

Mini hasn’t revealed details on charging times, range or whether its something that will actually go on sale, but the Scooter E does look like something which would fit well with the Mini brand in dealerships.
