- A New Isetta? [✜]
Via Wired, news that BMW looking to reintroduce its Isetta as a zero-emissions electric car. The original Isetta (seen at Wired ) was a three-wheeled ugly duckling that fit into the era of other classic post-war Eurocars (2CV, Morris Mini, 500, et al). Unlike the new Mini Cooper, the new Isetta concept (seen in the Autocar link, above) pales in comparison (the 500 has been in more or less continuous production, for better and worse).
Also intriguing: BMW is considering using this as the base for a "range of city cars", including internal combustion models based on its motorcycle engines.
