Microcar: folding electric vehicle

An Israeli technology startup called City Transformer developed a new all-electric microcar that can fold and shrink down to fit in a tight parking spot or slide through a gridlock.

Claimed to be the world’s first ultra-compact electric vehicle, the CT1 can change its width even when it’s on the move.  The electric vehicle is 98 inches long and can shrink down to 39 inches in tight spots with the touch of a button.  It features an enclosed, high-grade, safe air-conditioned cabin with two wing doors.

The new microcar helps avoid traffic and parking problems by simply “shape-shifting”.  It promises to reshape urban mobility in smart cities and will hopefully help lessen the effects of overcrowding on the roads.
