Modern cars work quite well as vehicles in the sharing economy, even though they aren't built specifically for that task. A Volkswagen subsidiary hopes to change that with a dedicated ridesharing concept.

The concept comes from Volkswagen's Moia subsidiary, an extension of VW's mobility efforts that hopes to capitalize on some people's desire to ditch personal transportation in favor of ride-hailing. Moia's near-term goal is to remove one million cars from cities across Europe and the US by 2025, replacing them with shared mobility schemes like this one.

It then goes above and beyond by fitting on equipment that will allow the pickup to go above and beyond where any other pickup could go.

Moia's concept, which lacks a name, is a fully electric van with space for up to six passengers. Each seat stands alone, so you won't have to share a bench with a stranger. Every seat features creature comforts like USB ports and reading lights, and Wi-Fi allows riders to stay connected on the go. The front passenger seat is ditched in favor of additional cargo storage, and ingress and egress should be easy for everyone with massive, automatic sliding doors.

Perhaps most importantly, Moia's concept car won't burn gas or diesel as it ferries passengers around town. The concept is entirely electric, meaning it has a twofold benefit to local air quality -- it can help remove other vehicles from the road while emitting nothing from its tailpipes. Its range is estimated at about 186 miles, with an 80-percent recharge taking place in less than 30 minutes. That latter figure likely assumes the 320-kW charging speed Volkswagen has promised in the past, even though no modern car can handle charging at that rate for now.

Ordering a ride from Moia will be as easy as any other ride-hailing service. A customer app lets passengers book and pay for Moia's services. Algorithms will handle the carpooling portion, matching customers with similar destinations.

Moia's service is already being tested in public, although it's currently limited to Hannover, Germany, and it relies on traditional Volkswagen Multivans. The concept van is slated to hit the roads of Hamburg some time next year.

Mini Brand Gets Revised Logo for 2018 .
New badge quietly debuted on Mini Electric conceptMini has actually shown this badge already on the Mini Electric concept that debuted this year in Frankfurt. In addition to quietly previewing Mini's new logo, that concept showed off a heavily revised Hardtop exterior that included taillights with Union Jack LED elements and headlights with new LED accents. Perhaps we'll see some of those styling cues on the refreshed Mini Hardtop coming next year. We know Mini plans to introduce an all-electric model for 2019, and this concept likely gives us a pretty good idea of what we can expect from a Mini-E successor.
