The future of mobility?
It's called the Minimó, and it's absolutely not a Renault Twizy.
Granted, before I put my glasses on I too was convinced it was the French brand's futuristic electric mobility thingy, alas, it's something completely different.
"The industry is adapting to changes in the way customers view personal transport," said Luca De Meo, President of Seat. "With the Minimó, the vision of our first product designed to purpose, SEAT is addressing those challenges, combining autonomous driving technologies with electric powertrain systems to create the future of urban-mobility."
Seat also says that the Minimó offers 'great driving pleasure' thanks to its stiff, lightweight chassis, open-wheel design, and a high driving position. What's more, it comes with plenty of creature comforts as well, like wireless Android Auto technology, which is displayed on a central digital display behind the steering wheel.
"The design of the Minimó shows the way we understand urban mobility: efficiency, high value and cost saving – combined with a vibrant design. Our Minimó demonstrates that there is space for fun and style when we are talking about electric and shared vehicles. More than ever – design matters." said Alejandro Mesonero, Design Director at SEAT.
