The tiny Microlino car will be available in March

Lovers of small cars, and even very small cars, will be thrilled. Swiss manufacturer Micro Mobility Systems will begin deliveries of the Microlino in March.

A “baby car”, that’s how the manufacturer Micro Mobility Systems describes its astonishing vehicle, the Microlino, whose size is the equivalent of a third of a normal car. To enter this four-wheeler, you have to lift the single door that acts as the front facade. Two people can fit in it! And at the back, a 220-litre trunk can store three cases of beer (to be consumed in moderation, etc.). The Microlino also incorporates a sunroof.

Two seats and a small trunk

The vehicle has a motor with a power of 12.5 kW, which allows it to spin at a maximum speed of 90 km/h. It accomplishes 0 to 50 km/h in 5 seconds with a maximum torque of 89 Nm. Three types of battery are available: 6 kWh for a range of 90 km, 10.5 kWh for 175 km and 14 kW for 230 km. The recharge time is between 3 and 4 hours depending on the battery chosen.

The manufacturer specifies that a standard electrical outlet is sufficient to recharge the Microlino. Its weight is 496 kg for the 6 kWh version. To achieve such a car, Micro Mobility Systems used a self-supporting monocoque improving safety and driving behavior compared to the tubular chassis of other vehicles in its class.
