First revealed to the world as a fully digital model during last year’s #NEXTGen event, the MINI Vision Urbanaut this year returns to the IAA summit – but this time as a physical model.
More than just a car, the MINI Vision Urbanaut is a vision of space. Built with sustainability and flexibility in mind, its adaptive concept makes sure that you will always get the best out of the city and your surroundings.
At the heart of this, are the MINI Moments; CHILL, WANDERLUST and VIBE.
Depending on which MINI Moment you choose, the Urbanaut will automatically change its exterior and interior correspondingly. In this way, the Urbanaut gives you the ideal stage for your mood, and the spatial surroundings to make the most of it; CHILL gives you a space to lean back and relax, transforming the Urbanaut into a soothing urban oasis. WANDERLUST is for when you feel adventurous, setting the vehicle up with everything you need for a digital getaway. Finally, the VIBE moment is designed for hanging out with friends, freeing up space in the interiors and paving the way for conversations and just having a good time.
Of course, the MINI Vision Urbanaut has a green soul, too. Its design is inspired by MINI’s approach to clever us of space, offering maximum space on a minimal footprint. Another aspect are the many ways you can choose to use the Urbanaut. By giving you one vehicle with multiple purposes, it frees up space in the city, and allows you to use it for more, and longer.
Finally, the MINI Vision Urbanaut uses sustainable and recyclable materials in its interior and is equipped with an electric engine for emissions-free movement in the city and beyond.
