The visionary and pioneer Wim Ouboter invented the Micro Scooter and Kickboard and turned it into a Lifestyle Product, which is now distributed in more than 80 countries. His idea revolutionized the concept of urban mobility and the thinking of transportation in cities.
After seeing a report on TV together with his two sons about an electrified ISO Rivolta from 1950, they agreed that a modernized bubble car could be the perfect vehicle for urban transportation. It would be an environmentally friendly vehicle that is small and swift so you will always find a parking spot in the city without going crazy. And it should make you smile!
Iso Rivolta - 1954
The Isetta was a microcar manufactured by Iso Rivolta in Bresso italy. With its unique front entry and cute looking the car also known as „bubble car“, became more and more loved all around the world. With over 217`000 sold cars the production stopped in 1962. Now 54 years later we revived this old but still genius car concept.
First Design Sketches
In the beginning of the year 2015 the first design ideas of the Microlino have been developed. It was clear that the design had to be independent and not a poor imitation of the old Isetta. New design, todays technologies and groundbreaking innovations. We wanted to create a reminder of history and not only a reanimation!
From Old to New
In collaboration with the university ZHAW and Designwerk we created several studies on what we needed to adjust, to transform this old concept into a car for the future. For testing purposes we electrified an old Isetta to analyze our results and get the feeling of such a small car. Through all the positive reactions and excitement from people on the street, we knew that this project has to go to the next phase.
In the end of 2015 we decided to produce our first Microlino prototype. We presented our first Microlino prototype at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016 and received more than 500 reservations in one week. In total, we received more than 2600 reservations in 2016.
Made in Italy
In April 2016 we started a Join-Venture with Italian car manufacturer Tazzari. They have more than ten years experience in the development and production of electric cars and have sold a few thousand of their Tazzari ZERO worldwide. The Microlino will be produced at their facilities in the heart of the famous Motor Valley in Italy.
