Return of the BMW Isetta, which suddenly smoking!

While Mercedes-Benz is proud to offer a micro city car, the Smart and Toyota is preparing to compete with him with his IQ concept and not forgetting the return of the little Fiat 500, voila rumors of more more persistent are heard, has the effect that BMW board also on the realization of a city car and the opportunity is too good to imagine the return of an almost legendary car, the Isetta.

Small historic return

The Isetta was first presented April 9, 1953, by the Italian manufacturer Iso which at the time was motorcycle manufacturer. Moreover, the Isetta name, in Italian means little Iso. The cart had a body shapes of a drop of water, associated to a fully glass roof and whose main characteristic was to provide a single porter, at the front of the vehicle. In its infancy, it used only a small 200cc engine which delivered a power of 9.5 horsepower. Despite everything, she could accommodate three passengers or four in the version 600 said elongated.

The manufacturer Iso has forsaken production model Isetta in 1955 bequeathing licenses for the production of its small drop of water to metal Romi-Isetta companies of Brazil, Velam of France and BMW in England and Germany.

For the Bavarian manufacturer and all others, to build a small city car has a hybrid engine or electric is essential in order to comply with new environmental standards required by the various countries, including those of the United States announced that an average of 6 8 li/100 km (42 mi / gal) for their entire vehicle fleet of 2020 ...
