The arrival on the market of the Microlino is imminent. After a long and turbulent development, which included a legal dispute with Artega and a complete redesign of the vehicle (whose definitive version uses a monocoque chassis instead of a tubular one and wider rear tracks, among other improvements), the small electric Swiss is about to hit the streets.
Inspired by the mythical Isetta of the 50s, this bubble car has been designed by the company Micro Mobility Systems, although the person in charge of its production (which will take place in Turin, Italy) will be the specialist COMP. The special launch edition, called the Pioneer Series, will be limited to 999 units.
“ The Pioneer Series is for everyone who has supported us from day one. Those who reserved their Microlino nearly six years ago when we first unveiled our concept car at the Geneva Motor Show. Those of you who have participated in our surveys and have helped us make the Microlino a reality. You believed in us, despite all the challenges. Hello everyone, you are true pioneers!”
The Microlino will be a 100% electric L7e quadricycle. Its top speed will be 90 km/h, while the Pioneer Series will equip a 10.5 kWh capacity battery pack that will provide a range of 177 km under the European WLTP approval cycle, a figure that will bring it closer to passenger cars. like the FIAT 500 or the Renault Twingo E-TECH Electric (190 km WLTP in both cases).
The Microlino will start at about 12,500 euros
Later the range will be completed with a smaller battery (95 km WLTP) and a larger one (230 km WLTP). At the moment the price of the Pioneer Series is unknown (the future access variant will cost 12,500 euros, so this special launch edition with the intermediate pack should be somewhat more expensive).
The Pioneer Series will also include a sunroof, vegan leather, and suede upholstery, Bluetooth speakers… It will be available in two exclusive colors, Atlantis Blue and Torino Aluminum. “Both colors perfectly reflect the soul of Microlino: retro charm with a modern look.” Each unit of this special edition will be numbered.
