You don’t necessarily need a huge car to get around. Take Rimono for instance. It is a two-seater electric car that can be driven by any adult. It is 1 meter wide and 2.2 meters long, weighing 320 kg (the production version is expected to weigh below 200kg). The car has a max speed of 45 kph.
This tiny car is about the quarter of the size of an ordinary car and ideal for short trips. The car’s body parts are easily replaceable. In fact, owners will be able to easily customize their vehicles with fabrics by Teijin. More information is available on the Japan Times.
