The electric miniature car is already being tested

The Microlino project, inspired by the BMW Isetta, was launched in 2015; there is one difference between the two miniature cars: the drive. The Microlino, which was first introduced to the general public in 2016, will be marketed with an electric power source.

Even though he had not yet reached the production line, the electric “soap dish” had made its way to the armies. The first prototype at the Geneva Motor Show almost became the subject of a forklift accident, and then a legal duke hike between Microlino and its former partner, Artega, rolled an obstacle to the project.

Had it not been canceled due to the coronavirus epidemic, it would have debuted in public at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, so until now, the introduction of the Microlino 2.0 has been awaited. The updated version is much safer, according to the company, as evidenced by the image below:

However, the full specification is not yet known, which is no wonder, as it is not even classified as a car in most European countries, but if it does, it could be in competition with Renault Twizy and Citroën Ami. The 2.4-meter car will be powered by a small rear-mounted electric motor, and its two batteries have a range of 125 and 200 kilometers, respectively.

With the first copy, the test drive has already taken place, and a total of five prototypes will be involved in the testing phase. If the tests go well and the necessary permits are received from the European Union within a few months, series production can begin in September. The first copies can be handed over to their owners before the end of the year, the price of Microlino starts from 12 thousand euros, ie 4.3 million forints.
