At the IAA Mobility in Munich, Micro unveiled the production version of the Microlino 2.0 miniature electric vehicle. A vehicle that falls into the ATV category in Europe is similar in design to the ultra-compact BMW Isetta from about sixty years ago.
Like the BMW Isetta, the four-wheeled electric vehicle has only one door – the front door. However, the Microlino 2.0 is more secure. The company claims it is “the first car in its class to feature an automotive grade solid construction.”
The urban ATV is powered by a 19 kW (25 hp) engine that can accelerate it to 90 km / h. The trunk volume of the two-seater is 230 liters.
The electric car attracted a lot of interest. More than 24,000 people have booked it. The company plans to start production this year in Turin with three varieties: Urban, Dolce and Competizione. The battery capacity is 6, 10.5 and 14 kWh, and the mileage without recharging is 95, 175 and 230 km, respectively. Prices start at 12,500 euros.
