the electric descendant of the Isetta arrives

Micro, a Swiss company specializing in urban mobility, markets the final version of its Microlino. This electric descendant of the BMW Isetta arrives in Europe this summer.

Rather known for its scooters, the Swiss company Micro is embarking on the manufacture of small cars. The company had presented a first concept four years ago, technically reviewed several times since. A almost final version was presented in 2018but was still not on our roads since. But this time it’s the right one. The standard Microlino, a kind of modern BMW Isetta, arrives in Europe.

Considered a heavy quadricycle, the Microlino however requires a B license to drive it since it climbs up to 90 km/h. It is therefore quite far from one of its competitors, the Citroën Ami, sold half the price but also less versatile and equipped. Indeed, the Microlino has a single power level (12 kW / 17 hp), but three battery sizes: 6, 10.5 and 14 kWh, for respectively 91, 177 and 230 km of autonomy.

A call price under 15,000 €

The basic Microlino, in Urban finish, is available from €14,990 in France. It automatically has “soft-close” closure of the single fridge-style front door, two screens (digital meters and central touch screen for the multimedia system), Bi-LED headlights and lights, heating electric at 3 levels with ventilation system, heated front windshield and rear window, and even four USB ports.

The rest of the range is made up of a mid-range Dolce finish (from €16,580) and a high-end Competizione variant (from €18,590). The Dolce version offers the canvas sunroof, chrome mirrors and a vegan leather steering wheel in particular. At the top, the Competizione offers specific upholstery, a sport mode or specific matte colors and hubcaps.

A series of Pioneer launches to be delivered this summer

For the most impatient, Micro also offers a limited launch series numbered at 999 copies, the Pioneer Series version. This will be the first to come off the production line with deliveries announced this summer. It is necessarily associated with the intermediate battery of 10.5 kWh and has only two specific colors, a blue or a matt silver gray. Its level of equipment is high with in particular an integrated portable Bluetooth speaker, a smartphone holder or even a Micro Kickscooter electric scooter worth €179 integrated into the trunk. The base price of this Pioneer Series is €20,990.

Microlino price (June 2022):

  • Pioneer Edition (10.5 kWh battery): €20,990 / summer 2022 delivery
  • Urban (6 kWh battery): from €14,990 / spring 2023 delivery
  • Dolce (6, 10.5 or 14 kWh battery): from €16,390 to €20,080 excluding options / delivery end of 2022 – beginning of 2023
  • Competition (10.5 or 14 kWh battery): from €18,590 to €20,090 / delivery end of 2022 – beginning of 2023
