If you live in Bozeman, Montana, you might not feel the need of a 254-pound single seat micro car that is just 31 inches wide and 63 inches long. But if you live in a crowded European city like Amsterdam, the German engineered iEV X electric car may be just the ticket. It’s small enough that you might be able to slip it into an elevator and take it to work or park it in your apartment.
But what if you want to take someone with you on your journey around town? What if you need to carry a brief case or loaf of bread with you? What then? No worries, friends. The iEV X can expand to 75 inches so your passenger can make use of a tiny jump seat that stows behind the driver. Need even more room? Press a button and car stretches out even more to a whopping 87 inches. When extended, the sides of the vehicle are open to the elements, but in a world where doors are an option on the Renault Twizy, that should be no problem for space-conscious Europeans.
