MINI John Cooper Homage / Automobile Concept

MINI John Cooper Homage

If one compares the networked, sharing-based mobility offers of the future with a library, then the MINI and its “analog driving” is one’s favorite book, which one wishes to own and keep on one’s own shelves.
If you need a car with lots of volume, you can simply rent such a vehicle through car-sharing offers.
The car is powered by a 280 HP electric engine. But in order to enjoy that extra thrust, namely the “John Cooper Works Boost” one needs to obtain energy directly. This self-generated electricity is stored in special MINI batteries and place on the roof behind the driver. Thus the driver is actively contributing to drive efficient.
