Smart, Mini launch scooter battle

2010-09-13 09:11
Daimler’s Smart and BMW’s Mini has announced plans to enter the electric scooter market, promising concepts for the upcoming Paris auto show. 

Soon after Smart announced its plans to unveil a pure electric scooter concept at the forthcoming Paris auto show, Mini revealed it too would introduce a scooter concept at the event.

While Smart declined to supply technical details for its showpiece, Mini’s concept scooter will be shown in three trims and will, reportedly, run off a lithium-ion battery pack.

Teaser sketches were made available but we expect more details to surface as the Paris show approaches.

Wheels24 will be at the Paris Motor Show to bring you the latest coverage.
