MINI has just decided to launch a set of initial information as well as images of the Scooter E concept. In fact, MINI is about to provide three retro-inspired scooter concepts to the Paris Auto Show event. To be specific, the first model will utilize the “Ego” name with the purpose of supplying mobility for a single person. The second one is named “E” since this auto edition is emphasized on environmental friendliness. In a nutshell, both of them are joined by a British Racing green two-wheeler, also known as the ultra-retro member of the family.
In terms of performance, the scooters are run on a rear hub-mounted electric motor functioning as a kinetic energy recovery system within the braking phase, which is filled with electricity via a lithium-ion battery pack anticipated to deliver a range of approximately 62 miles (100 km). Also, the scooters can reach a top speed of 37mph (60 km/h) and are hoped to come on sale at the cost of more than EUR2500. Besides, the battery can be recharged thanks to an on-board power cable built in the rear side of the model.
