Seat has revealed that its new Minimó concept car will go into production in 2021.
Design boss Alejandro Mesonero told Autocar that the brand is "working on the production version now which will come in 2021. The shape won’t change but the materials will.”
The tiny all-electric quadricycle, similar to the Renault Twizy, has been developed to “help meet the challenges of city driving, emission regulations… the increasing fatigue of traffic jams or the lack of parking spaces”. Measuring just 2.5m long and 1.24m wide, the Minimó is less than half the footprint of the average A-segment city car.
It blends motorbike details, such as a single headlight, with an SUV-like driving position, relatively exposed 17in wheels and asymmetrical doors which are designed to open in tight spaces. "Even if a car is for car sharing it needs to be attractive," said Mesonero. "If it’s not, we will fail".
