Micro presents two new versions of its Microlino electric minicar

The Swiss family business Micro presents two new versions of the Microlino at the Paris Motor Show.

A light electric vehicle of the European Union category L7e with a maximum speed of 90 km/h. The vehicle, which has only been on the market for a short time, is available in three battery versions.

The vehicle, which recently went on sale to customers, is available in three battery versions starting at around 15,000 euros with a range of 91, 177 or 230 kilometres.

In Paris, Micro presents the Microlino Lite. The Microlino Lite is an L6e version of the Microlino aimed at younger customers.

It’s supposed to have a similar range to the Microlino, but the top speed will be limited to 45 km/h. This means that it can also be used by people without a driving license.

The Microlino Lite also differs from its big brother in a few design details: it has glossy black trim instead of front and rear LED lights, a black front bumper and a new color scheme.

With the Microlino Lite, we wanted to give more people access to sustainable mobility solutions. There are more and more people who do not have a driving license but want to be on the road sheltered from the weather.

Olivier Ouboter, co-founder.

The Microlino Lite is expected to go into production from 2023 and prices are expected to be “slightly lower” than the Microlino.

Micro also exhibits the Microlino Spiaggina Concept at the Paris Motor Show. The vehicle is inspired by beach cars from the 1960s, such as the Fiat 600 Jolly or the Citroën Mehari.

The Microlino Spiaggina has a blue and white striped fabric roof and is open to the sides and rear. The show car has a white-blue vegan leather interior with details such as wave-shaped stitching on the seats and a wooden floor in the cabin and trunk. All materials are waterproof.

The Microlino Spiaggina is an idea we have been toying with for years and which has finally come true. It will become the most elegant vehicle for summer destinations in Europe, such as Portofino, Saint-Tropez or Ibiza.

Wim Ouboter, CEO of Micro.

The Microlino Spiaggina should go into production next summer in small series.

Following the challenges, Micro began production of the Microlino this summer at a joint factory with Italian company CECOMP in Turin, Italy. More than 35,000 people have already booked the available variants, according to the provider. The first customers in Switzerland received their Microlino in the special edition “Pioneer Series” a few weeks ago.
