Pokémon is partnering with Mini to create a Pikachu powered car | The Sun

BMW has partnered with The Pokémon Company to introduce a new all electric car based on Pikachu’s power.

Revealed at Gamescom, one of the world’s largest gaming showcases, the new Mini Aceman was shown off in a giant toy box, called an Action Pack.

This is a special version of the electric concept which has a Poké ball as a steering wheel, and wheels packed separately.

Mini is not only partnering with Pikachu due to the car’s electric power.

The Aceman will also be compatible with games consoles, so you can play your favourite games inside.

However, which consoles it will be compatible with is yet to be announced.

The car has a number of projectors on both the inside and the outside.

These show off different Pokémon-themed motifs, including lightning, Poké balls and of course the electric mouse Pikachu. 

When you open the doors, lightning is projected onto the floor with the Mini X Pokémon logo.

In Experience Mode, Pikachu takes over the dashboard, running around to welcome you into the car.

The Aceman is also capable of projecting onto the wall in front of it.

This will give drivers the drive-in movie experience anywhere there’s a wall.

Head of Mini Stefanie Wurst said of the collaboration: “Gamification will play an increasingly important role in the Mini of the future and offer a unique experience for our customers.
