Estonia may not be known as a car producing country but that hasn’t stopped Roman Muljar, the founder and chief executive of Nobe, from creating this; the electric Nobe 100. The tiny car has an impossibly cute and retro design and is the subject of a crowdfunding campaign looking to raise $1.2 million.
The small automaker claims that Nobe 100 has a combined range of 137 miles (220 km) and tops out at 68 mph (110 km/h). The company hasn’t said how many electric motors the 100 has, nor how powerful they are, but we do know that the three-wheeler has all-wheel drive and can be recharged in a respectable two hours.
The design of the Nobe 100 combines a plethora of retro design cues, including chrome door handles, circular headlights, a chrome grille, and chrome hub caps. The car even has tires with white walls. Inside, the theme continues wth a large, thinly-spoked steering wheel, a minimalist dashboard and two circular dials making up the gauge cluster. Nobe says the 100 offers interior space for three passengers and luggage.
Impressively, Nobe has built the 100 from purely reusable parts and intends on offering a series of easy-to-install upgrades to ensure each car delivered remains on the road for as long as possible. As if this wasn’t enough to get you excited, perhaps the fact that it features a removable hard top will.
As mentioned, the car will only be produced if the crowdfunding campaign on Funded By Me hits $1.2 million. At the time of writing, the project had been 38 per cent funded with 40 days left to invest.
