Diminutive drive for 2013

Saturday, 02 June 2012

The diminutive Volpe model car, coming our way in 2013, is apparently capable of driving inbetween a pair of other vehicles to park.

The vehicle plugs into the mains to get its juice, rather than taking a trip to the petrol station. It can tackle up to 30 miles per hour speeds and is going to set buyers back £5,600.

Explaining its potential appeal to the likes of car insurance holders, Isabella Artioli, Volpe's vice president, has commented that it "is for every urban dweller desiring to move around town in style, independently, without losing time in traffic and to look for a parking space."

The car's dimensions measure one and a half metres in height and a single metre in width.

Honda recently announced that a rather different diminutive vehicle, the U3-X, would be appearing at a Paris exhibition. It gave shopping centres as an example of a location in which it created that device to be driven.
