With efficiency being at the centre of discussion regarding the range of EVs, size plays a key role. Additionally, the trend of mini urban electric cars also looks like a practical way to excel in city environments.
Italian carmaker, Microlino has developed an urban EV with specs, range, price and features suitable for city dwellers. The trend of micro- and mini-cars has been around for decades and now this iteration is being incorporated into EVs. The deliveries of the first 999 units of the Microlino have commenced in Italy. Germany and Switzerland will follow next while 2023 will bring this EV to the rest of Europe.
