The compact car goes on sale in 2021.

The Swedish company Micro-Mobility intends to introduce Microlino 2.0 in Geneva. As a power plant, the novelty will use an electric motor, and the design will be inspired by the BMW Isetta, which was produced from 1955 to 1962.

Micro-Mobility has previously tried to launch a re-launched BMW Isetta called Microlino on the market, but the model was not able to pass the quality control and serial production did not start. A little later, an analog of Microlino called Karolino from Artega was supposed to be released. The cost of the car was 18 thousand euros. However, due to lawsuits from Micro-Mobility, the release of the Karolino model was canceled.

In 2020, the company has the right to release Micro-Mobility Microlino, but the automaker announced the release of version 2.0. The updated small car will receive an electric power plant, a roomy interior and a full tailgate.

It takes 5 seconds to accelerate from standstill to 50 km / h, and the maximum speed is 90 km / h. The developers report that on a single charge an electric car is able to cover 200 kilometers. The cost of the car is from 12 thousand euros. The start of sales is scheduled for 2021.

In addition to Microlino 2.0, the company intends to present in Geneva a three-wheeled electric scooter that does not require a driver’s license.
