Imran Sheikh July 30, 2018 01:49 AM a classic work of art... Kwetla July 30, 2018 06:32 AM I can see that there could be issues if someone parked too close in front of you, thus preventing the door from opening? joshua212 July 30, 2018 09:23 AM The thing is so tiny that you wouldn't ever need to parallel park it, you would just park it head or tail first, that way nobody could block your hatch. Dziks July 30, 2018 09:41 AM Microlio's maximum speed of 90 km/h fits perfect to the Swiss limit of 80 km/h on suburban streets. In Germany the limit is 100 km/h - I wonder if the car will have an option for pumped-up model. Although 110km/h in this little nutshell seams scary. Interesting is also what are the crash tests results. minivini July 30, 2018 11:59 AM Seems a sad certainty we’ll never see it in the states. I love this thing!! MarylandUSA July 30, 2018 12:26 PM Wow: 2.4 meters (7.8 ft) is about 0.15m (0.67 ft) shorter than the first-gen SmartCar. But why is the weight (450 kg / 990 lb) stated "without battery"? Even if they don't know which exact battery they'll use, can't they give us an estimate? For example, "With a battery, the Microlino will weigh between 600 and 750 kg, depending on capacity." VadimR July 30, 2018 12:51 PM Unfortunately in usa, you can't park it head first into a parking spot as I found out in my electric smart fortwo the hard way with an unfriendly parking ticket. In usa, the passenger side wheels have to be along the curb even if it's more dangerous or inconvenient. Don Duncan July 30, 2018 01:21 PM The only thing that makes this BEV worth considering is the price. With a subsidy, it might be worth it for a few. I say "might" because the battery life/cost has to be factored in and those were not given. But then again, I might be wrong. I assume people think (analyze) before making a big purchase. That's probably wrong. Dziks: Safety specs used by buyers to evaluate? We both assume too much of people. VadimR: "...even if it's more dangerous..."? No, a law that is impractical? Or unneeded and stupid? Perish the thought. Are you an anarchist? Our glorious rulers will have to "re-educate" you. ljaques July 30, 2018 01:31 PM No problem, Kwetla. Just back to the curb. It's short enough. But, certainly, it's ugly enough that nobody would want to park near it. LOL Fast Eddie July 30, 2018 01:55 PM These tiny vehicles paint an image for electric vehicles as slow, tiny, teetering, nuisance hazards on the road in the mix of larger vehicles.
