Micro Mobility’s Microlino EV is now road-legal in Europe
In a recent announcement, Swiss electric scooter maker Micro Mobility Systems AG has revealed that its small two-seat electric vehicle ‘Microlino’ is now road-legal in Europe. The EV has recently passed the final tests for European Union (EU) homologation.
The announcement by Micro Mobility implies that the cute-looking, under-8-foot-long Microlino EV -- which is a small EV strictly for city driving -- is poised to hit the roads in Europe in the near future.
With the pictures of the Microlino having appeared on several websites during the last few years, the recent announcement by Micro Mobility indicates that the EV has now made a huge advance towards reality, and may soon be seen on the roads in European cities.
Micro Mobility planned to bring the Microlino EV to the market earlier, but the vehicle’s approval by the government apparently got delayed due to its unusual body structure, especially its refrigerator-like front door.
About the forthcoming availability of Microlino EV, Micro Mobility has disclosed that it will start the production of the vehicle in December 2018. The initial deliveries of the EV are scheduled for the company’s home market of Switzerland, and will be followed by sales in Germany in 2019. However, Micro Mobility has thus far made no disclosure about the launch of the Microlino EV in the US.
