Drawing its inspiration from the 1950's era BMW Isetta, this compact electric city car reminds us of the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe from the 90s. Although its not yet available to the public, the two-seater Microlino is only 8 feet long and allows entry for both the driver and passenger through the single front door. The Microlino rides at around 56 mph and can travel almost 125 miles on a single charge. We like to follow these all-electric vehicles that are pushing the trend forward and we'll keep you apprised on this one.
