Minimó’s dual character, bringing together both the qualities of passenger vehicles and motorcycles underlines the emphasis on its primary purpose: the ability to comfortably transport two people with minimal footprint.
With a length of 2.5m and a width of 1.24m, the concept car is compact enough to traverse even the most congested of city streets and fit into the smallest of parking spots. These compact dimensions allows the vehicle for a reduced footprint of only 3.1m2, much less than a regular city car (around 7.2m2). And, unlike other urban vehicles, a great driving pleasure and comfort is provided thanks to the large, uncovered, 17-inch wheels, a high SUV-like seating position and unparalleled roominess for the passenger, allowing it to sweep through urban streets unlike any other vehicle on the road.
The enclosed design, with its lightweight aesthetic and technical beauty, protects occupants not only from the elements but also improves safety, meaning no matter what the conditions, the vehicle is a practical option for getting around town.
The single headlight is reminiscent of a motorbike, while the rear light borrows design cues from aeronautics, emphasising the vehicle’s agility.
The doors are asymmetrical and hinged to open in the tightest of spaces. The smaller left driver’s door means more space can be given to the vehicle’s glasshouse increasing visibility for passengers, while the larger right passenger door makes entering and exiting the vehicle effortless.
Despite Minimó’s compact design, it is also highly practical.
