Official debut in March

Swiss design and tuning company Rinspeed has prepared yet another interesting concept for next year's Geneva Motor Show.

Company boss Frank Rinderknecht led the design of this new concept that combines personal and public transportation. It was created to be small so that it would be suitable in a crowded city, but at the same time it has an innovative interior cabin with upright seats created to maximize room. The vehicle is 3.6 meters (141.7 inches) long and 2.2 meters (86.6 inches) high and can be configured for craftsman or delivery services thanks to its versatile interior cabin layout.

The MicroMAX can accommodate up to five people and it also offers enough room for a shopping cart, refrigerator, stroller or a coffee maker. Just like most concepts, this is an all-electric vehicle.

Full details will be revealed in March in Geneva.

2013 Geneva Motor Show: Swiss car visionary Rinspeed intends to revolutionize urban traffic

"microMAX" - my, your, our car!

In addition to mountains, chocolate and watches the Swiss are world-famous for their innovative urban transportation concepts. However, "microMAX" and its creator Frank M. Rinderknecht, boss of Rinspeed, the Swiss powerhouse for ideas, set out to revolutionize short-distance transport: "microMAX" - presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, March 7th through the 17th - intends to merge personal and public transportation in particularly clever fashion. Rinderknecht explains: “Modern ride share centers nowadays are web-based or Smartphone-based. 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.”

My, your, our car. "microMAX" from the Swiss car visionary defines an entirely new class of vehicles. With a length of 3.6 meters, equivalent to that of a BMW Mini, “microMAX” not only offers plenty of space for the driver, three passengers and a stroller or shopping cart, it also provides the desired privacy. The vehicle height of 2.2 meters permits the installation of comfortable and space-saving upright seats equipped with safety belts - but above all, affords an outstanding sense of spaciousness with homey lounge character. A coffee maker, a refrigerator for the passengers’ happy-hour drinks and unlimited connectivity for entertainment purposes or for working while on the move are also included. Rinderknecht states: "microMAX" aims to encourage potential passengers to get in and ride because it is extremely convenient and simple.” And every passenger decreases CO2 emissions and costs - even the number of traffic jams falls.

It goes without saying that "microMAX" is an all-electric vehicle. Various equipment modules, for example for craftsmen or delivery services, make the space saver extremely versatile. Because, even though “microMAX” can be “your taxi” or “your bus” every now and then, the short four-wheeled friend first and foremost wants to be one thing: your car.

So you don´t have to stop working on the way home. You can even have breakfast on the way back to work the next day.

A Smart sized car with 4 people inside - I would call that a Can-Sized Family Van and paint it with Coca Cola brand.
