Originally produced during the 1950s and 1960s, the bubble car has developed a cult-like following over the years because of its quirky design and unique styling. The Isetta, particularly the BMW version, with it’s front opening door and incredible gas mileage is one of the most memorable versions, and it served as the design inspiration for Microlino’s modern, electric bubble car. Wim Ouboter, inventor of the Micro Scooter, turned his eye for urban transportation solutions to the car which, on average, is too large for normal use. Microlino combines the ideals and designs of original bubble cars with modern tech and production methods to create a small city car that looks significantly cooler than other options. With a maximum speed of 56 mph, a range of up to 134 miles and the ability to charge the electric vehicle from a standard wall outlet, it’s more than capable of daily city commuting. Microlino is taking reservations for the car now with production slated to begin this year.
