European Company Reboots A 1950s-Era Car With An Electric Twist

By

If you watched Family Matters in the '90s, you might remember Steve Urkel’s sweet Isetta microcar with its refrigerator-like front door. The Isetta was originally manufactured in 1952 by Italian firm Iso SpA before the design's body-making equipment was bought by BMW in 1954. Unfortunately for quirky car enthusiasts, production was limited and after 1962 the cars stopped being made.

Now, more than a half century after its initial debut, Swiss company Micro Mobility is bringing the classic design back to life with a jolt of electricity. The company has revealed the Microlino, an Isetta with an EV twist.
