Swiss firm Micro has revealed the Microlino 2.0 prototype compact Urban EV inspired by BMW Isetta. The carmaker says that Microlino 2.0 is designed to offer the right amount of space, range and performance according to average usage figures.
The car manufacturer says that a car only takes 1-2 people at a time on average and runs about 35 km a day. Traditional cars are 95% larger than their use. At the same time, as a change, Microlino will be an ideal choice between bike and car.

However, unlike Isetta, the Microlino uses four wheels instead of three. Talking about its interior, the Microlino has a simple and minimalist cabin. Although not much space has been given inside it.
