Rinspeed microMAX is an electric people hauler

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.
