On their Facebook page, MINI reveals today some interesting sketches of a concept coming to the Paris Motor Show. The MINI Scooter E is essentially an electric scooter operated by two-wheels.

The MINI E Scooter Concept fits in BMW’s plans to ofer emission-free alternatives for urban transportation.

By the looks, the MINI Scooter features the typical MINI design cues and its core elements. Power goes to the rear-wheel through an electric platform and it most likely uses a single battery.

Details are still scarce at the moment, but more information are to be revealed at the Paris event.

    Makes a massive amount if sense!

    BMW own Mini
    BMW make Bikes
    BMW want to promote sustainable motoring
    and
    Trendy scooters are snapped up by style concious riders, Mini could be a great fit for that!

      I agree Matt, well said. Motorrad could easily produce this concept, and brand it as a Mini – it makes good sense for BMW Motorrad to expand into Mini Scooters! They could develop a full line and sell Mini Scooters (gas and electric) globally. After all, scooters are extremely popular in many countries, far outnumbering motorcycles.

        well then they would have to make something more modern than this 1980’s look. Even that guy with that helmet looks like he is from the 80’s.

    I knew BMW would do this, they are the biggest maker of bikes over 500cc they have brought husqvarna and they are trying to reach new maket segments. i think the c1 will sold again but with a larger engine 400 cc
