Behold: the MicroLino – a super compact electric vehicle inspired by the BMW Isetta, Heinkel Kabine and other ‘bubble-cars’ of the 1950s and 60s.

Available to buy next year (initially in Switzerland and Germany only) for around €12,000.

The zero emissions Elettrica scooter from Vespa – 100km range, 4-6 hour charge time and, best of all, smartphone integration via Vespa’s Multimedia Platform app to save you fiddling with your iPhone X as you glide down Via Del Corso.
