This T10 Electric MiniCar is just about the cutest thing ever. Sure you wouldn’t want to mince words with a Hummer on a dark night, but where else could you find a teeny tiny thing that has one door, one seat and just enough space by the driver for ‘a pet animal’? Of course it’s from Japan silly. The Germans would make it twice as big and call it something macho like Einen Grosse AutoStrummer. The French would stick a wine rack in the back. The Brits would paint it dull grey. And the Aussies? Heh, they’d crush it immediately and use the batteries for their Walkman. Prices expected to be higher than $9500.00.
The T-10 is a motorized four-wheeled bicycle that can be driven with a regular driver license in Japan. It is mounted with a DC motor that matches the rated output of the motorized bicycle (600W) and four 12V 60Ah lead secondary batteries. The maximum speed is 55km/h, while the cruising distance is 50km. The motor is manufactured in Japan, but the control system is supplied by Curtis Instruments Inc of the US.
