Microlino electric vehicle by Wim Ouboter

March 25th, 2016 by retail design blog

Wim Ouboter, a Swiss urban transportation entrepreneur, wants to change personal mobility with a small electric vehicle concept under the name ‘Microlino’. The proof of concept was based on an electrified BMW ‘Isetta’ from 1956. With conventional cars in the city only being occupied by only two people on average, the team behind the vehicle wanted to develop a functional light car that is reduced to the max.

Micro-vehicles are still a niche, but with car sharing and car pooling becoming popular in congested cities, the concept would be affordable for everyone, whether it’s for renting or for buying. Being only 2.4 meters in length, two ‘Microlinos’ can be parked in a single conventional parking space. Outfitted with an electric drive system and weighing less than 400 kilograms, driving around town in the car maybe become economical enough to stay within city limits. The concept made an appearance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
