The world’s SMALLEST electric vehicle
Say hello to the WalkCar!
The electric ‘vehicle’ from Cocoa Motors looks like, as Gizmodo calls it, “a MacBook you can ride” and the company has given it the moniker “the world’s smallest electric vehicle”.
From what we see from the videos, we have no reason to disagree. The fully functional prototype is small enough to fit in a bag and is maneuvered as you would a Segway, by leaning in the direction you want to go. Step off and it immediately stops moving.
The diminutive vehicle weighs about 6.6 pounds, can go on for three hours or about 7.5 miles on a single charge, depending on how much the rider weighs. Yes, obesity is on the rise and we are getting more sedentary, but this is just too cool for us to be pessimistic. The project is only in pre-crowdfunding phase now, but we are already taking out our wallets and asking Cocoa Motors to “take our money!”
