Large cars have always been very popular but with all our environmental problems, we should start driving small cars as they are economical and easy to maintain.
1. Ford Ka
The Ford Ka was launched in 1996 and was compared to the very popular Volkswagen Beetle. Ford Ka is very popular in the United Kingdom and has not be introduced in the U.S. as yet as it is felt that the Americans would not accept it.
2. The Bolloré BlueCar
The Bolloré BlueCar is manufactured in France and though it is among the smallest cars in the world, it can run at a speed of about 80 mph and offers about 155 miles of operating range. In order to fully charge this car, one must take 6 hours out of the 24 in the day. This car is only available in France.
3. The Think City
”Think” is a Norwegian-based car company which has been planning to introduce this car in the United States of America within a few years. It was meant to come out during 2009 but due to recession and the consequent financial crunch, production was stopped.
4. The Daihatsu Copen
The Daihatsu Copen was launched in 2001 in Japan. It is a two-seater and is extremely compact and comfortable. This tiny car is available only in Japan and most of Europe.
5. The Smart Fortwo
The Smart Fortwo was initially known as the Smart City Coupe. It was launched in 1998 and was quite popular. In 2008, the company launched a new version of the car which is completely electric in nature, called the Fortwo Ed. This car is very environment friendly and easy to drive. While it is only available in the United States at the moment, the company is thinking of expanding production.
