At this year’s 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Rinspeed will be back with another concept that will never see the light of day. Known as the microMAX, the concept is basically a study of an electric people hauler.
“Modern ride share centers nowadays are web-based or Smartphone-based,” said Frank M. Rinderknecht, boss of Rinspeed. “They operate in real time: You need to go to work on a regular basis or want to go somewhere right now and in no time at all you find the driver that’ll give you a ride. ‘microMAX’ with its unique upright seats is the perfect ‘thing’ for swift short-distance transfers – the car to go with the app.”
The car is the length of a Mini Cooper but offers roomy seating for four passengers and includes a bunch of equipment like a coffee maker, a refrigerator and more.
Rinspeed says that the microMAX could be your next taxi or bus – or just a zero-emissions way to transport your family/friends.
