The World’s Smallest Car, Now Available In Electric And Petrol Versions
British engineering company Peel is bringing back the smallest cars in the world—that were originally manufactured in 1962—in electric and petrol versions.
According to Peel, driving these cars are “almost cheaper than walking”.
The ‘P50’ (seen in blue) and ‘Trident’ (seen in red) are three-wheeled, street-legal vehicles designed for urban commuters.
The cars are made of fiberglass, and weigh less than 200lbs (100kg).
Both vehicles have 49-cc petrol or DC electric engines, top speeds of 40mph (65kph), and a fuel economy of 118mpg (50km/l) or a range of 20 miles (30km) per battery pack
The P50 can sit “one adult and a shopping bag”, according to Peel. It weighs 132lbs (60kg), and is 54-inches long, 41-inches wide and 47.2-inches tall (1372mm-long, 1041mm-wide and 1200mm-tall).
The door-less Trident, on the other hand, is a two-seater vehicle that opens through a swinging top. It weighs 198lbs (90kg), and is 72-inches long and 42-inches wide (1829mm-long and 1067mm-wide).
The company is only producing 25 of these special edition cars for about US$19,00 each.
The cars come in red, white, and blue colors—while the ‘P50’ is also available in fuchsia and other colors upon request.
