Participate in environment protection and join the e-mobility & lifestyle community!
According to a study by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development 38% of daily traffic takes place in the immediate vicinity (on foot, by bike or by car within a radius of 2 to 3 km). Such as visits to the doctor or running errands to the bank, the grocery store, the pharmacy, the post office, etc.
In most cases the car is used for such errands, especially for shopping. At present there are few alternatives to the car for people who want to transport something or those who are limited in their mobility. (Even the most popular electric bicycles do not provide comparably large capabilities to transport something, apart from large cargo bikes, which may however not be balanced and driven with ease by everybody, because of their length, their wider turning circle and their weight.)
However, all these activities can be done easily with the Minniemobil. It is in so far an ideal, „decelerated“ alternative to the classic car, and is therefore ideal for the functional, safe, affordable, cleaner, comfortable and yet rapid locomotion.
Moreover, the use of this vehicle promises a significant reduction in traffic. In addition all road users, not just seniors, would finally be equipped with an alternative to the car for their important short-haul transactions.
Minniemobil provides a conceptual advancement of previous „Senior vehicles“. It offers a variety of possibilities for its´ use for both private as well as for business purposes. This was first achieved by creating plenty of storage space.
The product is also a platform that allows for a wide range of uses and application possibilities through minimal modifications. (B2C and B2B applications)
According to road traffic regulations the vehicles are registered as „wheelchairs“, although the vehicle driver does not have to be either disabled or ill. In the medium term a more clearly defined certification as an electric mobility aid such as the Segway is planned. This class of vehicles is approved for pedestrian walkways and pedestrian areas (walking speed of 3 km / h), as well as for combined pedestrian and bicycle paths and also for roads (Depending on the country in question speeds of up to 15 km / h are allowed).
A driving license is not required. Operation is intuitively understandable and extremely easy compared to normal cars. Prerequisite for use is a liability insurance (insurance plate). The Minniemobil travels at a speed of 3 to 15 km / h.
The Minniemobil primarily constitutes an assistance for mobility and shopping purposes, thus supporting the user in both leisure time as well as in everyday transactions. This applies for its´ use in spa towns and health resorts, in holiday/vacation spots, as well as in classical metropolitan areas.
The product meets the lifestyle expectations of a modern society and represents a new mobility solution for everyday use. In addition, the product is a safe means of transportation explicitly for the growing layer of seniors.
The acceptance of the Minniemobil is much higher due to its sporty, simple, elegant and above all functional design. Not only classic „wheelchairs“ but common mobility-scooters as well all have a negative „disabled image“, whereby a prevalent application didn´t come to fruition so far. Furthermore no e-mobile competitors provide even remotely viable charging options.
The elderly especially are enabled through minniemobil to maintain a self-determined life, thus increasing their self-esteem through their prolonged independence. It allows them to cultivate contacts and to continue participating in cultural life.
In order to achieve the climate- and energy policy objectives of the EU, we absolutely need to increase the use of electric vehicles in road traffic. The Minniemobil is a perfect solution for this purpose: On the one hand quite a few seniors would switch to a scooter, leaving their car in the garage, on the other hand a number of shopping trips by car would be replaced by the use of the minniemobil. This would result in a significant reduction in road traffic and increase Green Mobility.
Some benefits from the use of Minniemobil and „Green Mobility“:
(Increased quality of life through reduced environmental impact.)
- Reduction of CO2 emissions
- Reduced noise
- Better utilization of local power supply systems (through battery charge at night)
- Better utilization of any existing private power systems (solar panels)
- Reduced pollution through oil production
- Reduced needs for oil production
- Reduced needs to run into international conflicts within energy production
- Increased economizing of oil reserves for future generations
(Increased quality of life through new possibilities within mobility.)
- Reduced hassle within nearby mobility
- Increased communication possibilities through USB-Plug (loading mobile devices if needed)
- Less parking problems
- Cost savings per kilometer in consumption (e.g. for municipal vehicle fleets)
- Increased sensitivity towards electric mobility systems
- Increased fun and relaxation within mobility (Design & Lifestyle)
- Increased flexibility due to the independence of other means of transport (Free Mobility)
- Traffic calming through altered use of thoroughfares
