Embodying the spirit of the golden age of Italian automobile design, with clear cues from Vespa and Lambretta, this is the Microletta… an adorable 3-wheeled automobile that was designed to be the Microlino’s younger sister.
The Microletta captures the joys of driving a scooter, with the stability associated with four-wheeled automobiles. It comes with two wheels at the front and one at the back, almost like a cross between a scooter and a Segway. This format was adopted to provide overall stability, especially during cornering and just give you the sort of ‘Joie de vivre’ you’d get driving down sunkissed cobblestone roads in old-town Europe while on a holiday. The adorable EV can be driven with a car-driver’s license, and comes with a top-speed of 80km/h (or 50mph). The e-trike runs on swappable batteries (which closely resemble the ones used by Gogoro) that give it a 100-kilometer range on a full charge. It also features a unique handlebar-locking system that allows the Microletta to stand upright when locked, eliminating the need for a kickstand.
The electric trike will be officially unveiled in March this year at the Geneva Motor Show. It comes with a €4900 price tag and can be reserved on the Microlino website for no cost.
