Micromax Rinspeed Concept at Geneva Motor Show

A “cube” electric more similar in form to a van than a car. It has large windows to give more brightness, six plots in three rows of seats, designed to allow the carriage of standing passengers (obviously restrained by a belt made of ad hoc) and a large number of gadgets ranging from a machine to make coffee to an infotainment system managed via smartphone. It is Micromax, a concept car designed for urban transport which the manufacturer semi-artisan Rinspeed will present in the coming weeks at the Geneva Motor Show scheduled for March 7 to 17. Rinspeed has confirmed its presence at the event in Geneva along with new details of Micromax which in December had shown an initial anticipation.

Not particularly “micro” in size – the Rinspeed concept measures 3.6 meters in length and 2.20 m in height – Micromax uses, however, the maximum modularity to allow the maximum capacity of people on board: six including the driver. A wide space in the central area of ​​the passenger compartment can be used as a storage area as well as disengagement for the entry and egress of occupants (through two large sliding doors, one on each side of Micromax).
