The Rinspeed microMAX is a study of a compact short-distance vehicle with upright seats designed to merge personal and public transportation.

As Rinspeed boss Frank M. 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 has unique upright seats that make it particularly suitable swift short-distance transfers.

With a length of 3.6 meters, equivalent to that of a MINI, “microMAX” can accommodate a driver, three passengers and load a stroller or shopping cart, while also offering individual privacy.

The vehicle height of 2.2 meters allows the installation of comfortable and space-saving upright seats equipped with safety belts while offering a 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.

microMAX is equipped with an all-electric vehicle and can be customized with different equipment modules, for example for craftsmen or delivery services.
