13 World’s Smallest Cars You’d Love To Have
Ever planned on owning a small car? Why not, right? There are many benefits of owning a compact car. First, it’s easier to maneuver, especially if you’re trying to parallel park. Second, it’s not as expensive to buy one. Lastly, most of them have great gas mileage that can even reach up to 20 miles per gallon.
If ever you’re in the market for your own tiny car, you might want to consider one of these smallest cars in the world:
1. Myers Sparrow
Not only is this car one of the tiniest in the world, but it’s also one of the most unique vehicles out there. Manufactured in Ohio, this car is designed for one passenger only, which makes it as compact as possible and perfect for driving in cramped cities.
2. Smart Fortwo
From being unique to one of the most common compact cars you see, the Smart Fortwo can be found in 46 countries all over the globe and is already owned by 2 million individuals. The great news is that the manufacturers of the Smart car is releasing a third generation Fortwo in 2016, which is promised to be better than its predecessor.
3. Buddy Cab
Manufactured in Norway, the Buddy Cab is one of the most famous electric cars in the country. Although its power can bring you only up to 37 miles and a maximum speed of 50mph, the Buddy Cab is still an ideal and cost-efficient vehicle if you’re just running errands around town.
4. Peel P50
At only 54 inches in length and 41 inches in width, the Peel P50 was once the world’s tiniest car. This vehicle was first manufactured in the 60s until a new wave of electronic Peel P50s were introduced in 2010.
5. Commuters Cars Tango
Not only is this electric sports car small in height, it is also an ultra-narrow car (even narrower than some motorcycles), allowing you to drive alongside other small vehicles.
Don’t let the design fool you into thinking that this car isn’t safe on the road. In fact, the Tango’s design is tested to help you avoid accidents and is built with a racecar impact protection. The vehicle’s manufacturer, Commuter Cars, even bragged that the Tango is “arguably the safest car ever built.”
6. Pasquali Riscio
Small cars passing along the alleys are a usual sight in Italy, and the Pasquali Riscio is one of the most compact electric cars you’ll see. Unfortunately, although this car can bring you to your destination, you’ll have to be extra patient since the Pasquali Riscio only runs at a max speed of 25mph. The good news is that, even if you’re not a licensed driver, you can legally operate this car through the streets of Italy.
7. REVA G-Wiz
The G-Wiz is made by one of the world’s leading electric car company REVA, based in India. Even at a size of 2.6m in length, and 1.3m in height, G-Wiz, also known as REVAi, can easily fit two adults at the front and two children at the back. Unfortunately, if you’re planning to buy a G-Wiz for yourself, you might want to check first if it’s allowed in the highway, since this vehicle doesn’t meet this criterion in most countries.
Also known as a “bubble car,” the Fuldamobil was built in Germany between the 50s and 60s. While its design and looks might make you interested in purchasing your own bubble car, unfortunately, only 123 units were manufactured. So you really have to search hard and probably shell out a couple thousand dollars to buy yourself one of these beauties.
Like the Fuldamobil, the Isetta is also called a bubble car due to its egg-like shape. The unique thing about this is that it has a single door that opens at the front. The Isetta is manufactured by BMW and is interestingly the first production car that has a great mileage of 3L/100km.
10. Vespa 400
Although the last batch of this classic beauty was manufactured in the 60s, the Vespa 400 is one of the cars you want to have if you’re a big fan of small cars. Even if this car looks so tiny, its front can unbelievably accommodate two adults and the vehicle has a luggage space at the back.
11. Lumeneo SMERA
Introduced in 2008, the SMERA looks like a hybrid of a scooter and an electric car. However, even though this compact car can reach a max speed of 68mph, it apparently didn’t fit well with the market, since the company filed for bankruptcy in 2013.
12. Ford Ka
If you’re ready to buy a compact car, then the Ford Ka is the one you should consider since it’s one of the most accessible vehicles in this list. This car is smaller than the famous Mini Cooper and is dubbed as the modern Volkswagen Beetle.
13. Bollore Bluecar
Although the Bollore Bluecar is one of the largest cars in this list, it can still be considered a tiny vehicle compared to a regular car. Sold only in Europe, this electric car needs to be charged for 6 hours but can bring you up to a max speed of 84mph.
