World’s Smallest Cars
Dark Roasted Blend has posted a collection of the World’s Smallest Cars.
Smallest ever car to go into mass production was the fascinating “Peel” P50 car (you could almost carry it as a suitcase) – Image by Chris Littler.
From the post:
A product of traffic & parking problems in high-density urban areas, small cars have a lot of redeeming qualities. They are endlessly practical, often cute and mostly easy on your wallet. While you’d need to sacrifice much of your space and comforts, you’ll have a reward of being considered ecologically & street “smart”. Some of the models can go 40 km per liter (100 miles per gallon), which is advertised as “almost cheaper than walking”.
