Nobe 100 Is A Cute Crowdfunded Three-Wheel EV From Estonia

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.

    Can’t lie, that is cute.

      Way better looking than a Tesla that is for sure…

    • paulgdeaton

      I agree. Make it a 4-wheeler – with a similar design – add safety features necessary to make it road-worthy… and it could be the Baltic Tesla… at a much more affordable (an potentially profitable) price.

    Looks a hellavu lot better than this one (photo attached)…

    And probably has a better chance of succeeding too!

    Only $1.2M? That is pennies compared to what they truly need to make it possible. I bet they will take the money and declare they used it all up.

    • robotlogic

      Not true. Looking at their full size model they appear to have leveraged the use of existing reproduction classic car parts along with a fiberglass body. With 1.2M they could start making and selling them one at a time while slowly improving their production techniques to get the yields and profits up.

    • paulgdeaton

      It is basically like a kit-car manufacturer, using mostly off-the-shelf hard parts, and a custom ( and attractive) fiberglass body wrapped around them. Many a kit-car manufacturer started with less. It is, after all, a “city car”, not needing all the attributes of a larger, 4-wheel vehicle.

      I would agree that, should they want to go the full four-wheel car route, more money would be needed… but this looks very promising, and I hope they succeed. After 10-20,000 three-wheelers, maybe they can expand to fully road-worthy models. I would like to see that, too.

    Funny !

    • Bash

      True

  • pxsupply

    That is very cool and cute. But it doesn’t appear to have safety features…. Cannot see airbag etc…

    • robotlogic

      Because it won’t have any airbags. Only having three wheels makes it fall under the motorcycle category which does not require airbags or seat belts.

  • Classic Bob

    Love it! It’s cooler than any other EVs out there. Hope it gets funded!

  • robotlogic

    It has 3 wheels by Federal law it only has to pass motorcycle standards. No airbags, no crash tests, head restraints or etc are required. You could assemble a few of those a day in a 5000 sq ft warehouse.

  • IT’S CUTE. NICE TO SEE WHITE WALLS TOO.

    • Bash

      Your comment is lame .

  • Bash

    I can imagine calling you a noob.

  • Bash

    Looks like a toy. or better said; its very cartoonish.

  • Marty

    That’s probably the nicest suicide machine I’ve ever seen.

  • Well I don’t know, making cars from 3D rendering with 1,2 millions doesn’t sound convincing to me. Great concepts though.
