Metro Buddy: A Modern Citicar?

by Benjamin Jones on May 21, 2009


The Metro Buddy, a tiny electric car from Norway, seems to have a lot of the same design inspiration as the Citicar, which was built in the U.S. up until 25 years ago.

Despite its small size, the Metro Buddy will be able to get up to 50 mph and have a range of 50 to 75 miles, depending on which kind of battery pack it is equipped with. Buyers will be able to choose between lead acid, NiMH, and lithium ion battery packs, as well as a large range of exterior colors.

Fascinating! I love it! A refined Citycar! The US is constantly going through emission and mileage problems. Although most are very unwilling to downsize at all this type of vehicle is making more and more sense since we cannot continue our current means of transportation. I hope that builder will sell them in the US. Norway has a great start with the Th!nk EV alsoI believe.
