Micro Mobility delivers update to Microlino 2.0

Micro Mobility Systems is sharing new insights into the development process of its Microlino 2.0 e-lightweight vehicle. The first prototype chassis, which incorporates the new chassis, motor and battery, has been undergoing testing for the past few days, and despite the Corona pandemic, the production launch is still set for 2021.

The Swiss have completed the virtual integration of all technical components into their newly designed chassis and are now prototyping. Initial tests with a prototype chassis have been promising and significantly better than the Microlino 1.0, the manufacturer tells us in an email we received.

Work has also begun on building the first complete prototype, which will also be used to test components such as lights and the folding roof. "This is expected to be ready to drive in a few weeks. We plan to have a total of five prototypes, each completed and tested in succession at intervals of a few weeks. Production will start in 2021 despite Corona," expresses the micro-mobility founding family Ouboter.

A brief review: After the out-of-court settlement with Artega and TMI in the case of the Microlino clone Karolino (now sold as the Karo-Isetta) announced in January 2020, Micro Mobility announced that it was working with the Italian company CECOMP to bring a further developed version of the Microlino to series production readiness. The team christened the visually and technically revised model the Microlino 2.0. At the time, Merlin Ouboter said that it should feature "worlds better handling, better ergonomics, better repairability" and also be "producible in high volumes". After the cancellation of the Geneva Motor Show in the spring, the Swiss presented the small Stromer virtually at the beginning of March.
