SEAT unveiled an all-electric quadricycle concept in response to the challenges of urban driving at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Minimó concept combines the best of cars and motorcycles without forsaking the pleasure of driving.
Developed to meet city driving issues that we face almost every day such as never-ending traffic jams, lack of parking spaces and tightening emission regulations, SEAT combines the best of cars with the best of motorcycles and presents a vehicle with smaller dimensions yet retains safety and comfort levels. The concept is powered by a 15kWh battery pack allowing over 100 km of range on a single charge, alongside a battery swap system that sits under the floor for traveling further distances.
The narrow and agile Minimó can transport two people, but at 2.5 metres long and 1.24 metres wide it flows through urban streets effortlessly. The interior is similar to that of a regular sized car, with high SUV-like seating positions and plenty of room for the passenger – the asymmetrical doors are designed to open in narrow spaces.
Minimó may sound like just a vision for 10 years later, but SEAT has confirmed production for 2021. SEAT is also planning to add some level of autonomous function into to vehicle. Be prepared to see quite a few of them on the road in the near future.
