What exactly Nissan will get out of the New Mobility Concept is hard to say because it’s still a young project. Josh Westerhold, Future Lab’s senior manager, tells The Verge that right now the team is focused on asking a lotBMW enter the electric car market with 'truly radical' i3. Read more ... » of questions.

In fact, Westerhold rattled off a handful in a matter of seconds: “Is this a real trend? What would make a better product [for Nissan], if we need a better product? Is there interest?

But the most important questions, at least concerning Nissan’s involvement, are the last two Westerhold poses: what would the product and the businessWow: Dyson might be building electric car, joining Apple and Google in looking to make vehicles of the future.

Nissan is already searching for the answer to these last two. The companyRenault to double electric car range by 2020.

Westerhold describes the contract between Nissan and Scoot as “semi-indefinite,” and that it’s still too early to say what the next step for the program will be. Nissan could give 100 more cars to Scoot just as easily as it could wrap up pilot program and move onto something else.

The New Mobility Concept is just one take on what urban transportation will look like in the future. It’s not the fastest or the sexiest, but after taking a spin in one it’s easy to see how it could play a part in the miniaturization, electrification, and personalization of our future cities.
