Have you ever seen a MINI on two wheels? This is what MINI, member of the BMW group, asks its 371,288 Facebook fans and showing them a new MINI that will run on two wheels.

No, the company isn’t hiring a new stunt driver to perform the task on a conventional 4-wheeled MINI, but is coming to the Paris Motor Show with a two-wheeled electric ride – a Mini Scooter.

Sporting the colors and insignia of the popular MINI E, the design team has unveiled three drawings that reveal a scooter with a Vespa-esque rear with popular MINI styling. Going by the drawings, we can guess that the MINI E Scooter includes electric motors in both wheels, one of which can be used for regenerative braking. With details still under wraps, we will have to wait for the prototype to appear on the show for more information.
