What the heck is this? Did somebody squish a Lamborgini? Nope, what you’re looking at is the Mikro MM1, and despite looking like a toy, it is a full-fledged electric “supercar.” It is actually pretty adorable the more I look at it.
Yep, its makers say the MM1 is a real car, and it is intentionally cute given the company’s slogan of “Changing the world one smile at a time.” Come on, you know it just made you smile. It’s okay to admit it. This tiny electric car from North Ireland startup Mikro Automotive seats three, and like the McLaren F1 has a center steering configuration with the driver up front and two passengers in the back. It boasts a 300 mile range and can go from 0 to 60 mph in “under 4 seconds.”
Since they describe this as a car for the “smartphone generation” we can only guess that the interior will be loaded with tech and touchscreens, but we really don’t know.
Its makers hope to launch the car in 2019. You can check it out on Kickstarter where they are selling some merch to fund the car’s design and production.
