Swiss electric scooter and bike manufacturer Micro Mobility Systems has announced its Microlino bubble car will enter production in September, with European pricing expected to start at €12,000.

The two-seater, inspired by the classic 1950s Italian-designed BMW Isetta, is said to be capable of speeds up to 90km/h with acceleration from 0-50km/h in 5 seconds.

Two battery sizes will be available, offering estimated ranges of 125km and 200km. The vehicle can be fully charged from a regular household wall socket in four hours.

The floor-mounted electric motor produces approximately 11kW, sent to the rear wheels via a single speed transmission.

A prototype of the Microlino was unveiled in 2018. The updated variant will be built in Italy built upon a pressed steel and aluminium monocoque for improved safety.
