Micro Marvel: Microlino Lite EV Unveiled as Potentially the World’s Tiniest Electric Car

In the world of compact cars, the Microlino Lite EV from Swiss manufacturer Micro has taken the spotlight at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show, showcasing its impressive pint-sized proportions. Measuring a mere 2,500 mm in length, 1,470 mm in width, and standing at 1,500 mm tall, the Microlino Lite redefines the boundaries of small yet functional electric vehicles.

Moped License Magic

What sets the Microlino Lite apart is not just its size but also the licensing requirements for driving it. A moped license, which is attainable by individuals as young as 14 years old in many European countries, is all that’s needed to legally operate this four-wheeled wonder. The petite dimensions and low weight of 600 kilos make it an ideal choice for young drivers or those seeking a convenient and efficient city commuting option.

Compact Performance

While it may not break speed records, the Microlino Lite offers practical performance for urban mobility. The entry-level variant is equipped with a 5.5 kWh battery pack, providing a claimed range of 100 kilometers per charge. For those desiring more distance, the upper variant features an 11 kWh battery, extending the range to a promised 177 kilometers. Charging is relatively quick, with the smaller battery requiring two hours for a full charge and the larger one around four hours using a 2.2 kW Type 2 charger.

Affordability at the Forefront

With a starting price of 17,999 euros (approximately ₹16 lakh), the Microlino Lite positions itself as an affordable electric car option for European customers. Moreover, a leasing model is available, allowing interested customers to opt for a monthly payment plan at around 156 euros (approximately ₹14,000).

As the world’s tiniest electric car, the Microlino Lite demonstrates that good things indeed come in small packages, offering an efficient, eco-friendly, and budget-friendly solution for urban commuters.
