The Honda Micro Commuter, released in November 2012 is set to challenge the only other 100% electric urban compact two-seater, the Twizy by rival car manufacturer Renault. Its official title is ‘micro size, short distance, EV commuter’.
The car is lightweight, sleek and state of the art. It measures at just 2.5m long, 1.25m wide and 1.45m high. It runs on a rear-mounted electric motor with a 15kW lithium-ion battery. The Micro Commuter has an approximate range of 37 miles and maximum speed of 50mph.
