Bibendum 2011: Mia three-seater unusual VIP feel in a micro bus


How much call is there for a minibus? Mia Electric is about to out.

The company will start to build the Mia Micro.Bus, a little car that feels the secret lovechild of a VIP limousine and from Volkswagen ‘s concept pile. In reality, VW chief designer Murat did help develop the Mia, was designed specifically as an urban The car’s most striking is, without question, the seating The driver gets a prime front and center, with the two seats splayed out behind This is because, we were at the 2011 Michelin Challenge in Berlin last week, 70 of all urban drives are done by occupants, with 70 percent of the 30 percent made with, at two passengers.

The triangular arrangement means the passengers have a lot of luxurious It’s quite impressive, in Maximizing passenger comfort may not be how think when they buy but it makes sense on paper.

There is a small but important between fitting three and people into a car. all, four is kind of an number, just like We’re used to four in a normal car, but you could a fourth into the Mia just as you squeeze a fifth into everyday sedan.

According to on display in Berlin, there are variations: the Mia, the Mia L and the Mia U (the Mia website instead lists called the Mia Box Van ). The standard Mia uses an 8 kWh (li-ion phosphate) battery for a 90-kilometer range and a 110 km/h top The extended Mia L has a 12 kWh pack, a 130-km and can cover 130 kilometers before a charge. The Mia U? Not sure.

But what’s it like inside the Mia going down the road? it’s got all the noisy rattles of an vehicle from a small and the brakes feel a little and harsh. The steering works, but not exactly wonderful. While is enough space up front, it feel like the driver has a of extra room, except

The doors open with a push of the flowers on the frame on the door itself, which we figure out ourselves).

If the Mia performs on the road, it would be a perfect car for a service to use. This guarantee that all the trips are ones. Of course, at somewhere 19,500 and 24,500 Euros a pop on model), who wants to buy a few hundred of and leave them around for drunks to forget to charge up?

the driver when alone can the extra shoulder space and you use the Mia as a tiny bus passengers can feel they’ve been upgraded to VIP status. This feels a fun car, and taxi companies and driver services could take advantage of it best. perfect, but the Mia certainly offers a alternative.

We’ll soon get to see what the thinks about the Mia Micro.Bus. The is starting production on June 1 in France and plans to make vehicles this year. It has orders for 3,000 thus mostly in France and Germany. In the plan calls for making to 14,000 of them.
