by Range

As time goes by, we are getting closer to a time when more and more vehicle will be connected to the Internet. This new concept vehicle will debut at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show and it’s basically a fleet of “cloud-connected” cars that can be communally shared.

The microMAX EV concept was created by Rinspeed and Harman. This electric vehicle measures just 12 feet in length, and works off an motor with an output of 28 kW and a range of 100 km.┬áThe system running the car will allow you to access navigation data from other vehicles in real time. Using other cars connected in the urbanSWARM community, the system will be able to modify its routes dynamically to account for current traffic conditions – as reported by the other cars in the network.

Once you are part of the community, you can access any of these microMAX EVs, which isn’t a bad idea. The community has access to detailed ride data, including data such as the number of passengers and traveling speeds of each vehicle. As an added bonus, passengers in the microMAX have access to an on-board coffee maker and a fridge for refreshments while in transit.

Only time will tell if this is the vehicle of the future, or just another fanciful concept design.
