Our List of the World’s 5 Smallest Cars

Our List of the World’s 5 Smallest Cars

In the 1950s, people wanted big cars. In the ‘60s and ‘70s when gas prices first spiked, they gravitated toward smaller cars and today we’re back in the age of big SUVs, vans and trucks. But, there is still a special place with car-crazed folks for smaller cars. Here is our list of the 5 smallest vehicles ever produced for general use. If you have one of these tiny beauties, hold onto to it, because some of these mini cars will be worth big bucks one day!

At Kendrick Paint & Body Shop  we love cars—big ones, little ones, domestic ones and imported ones—so even though these vehicles are small in size, we still treat them all the same—like they were our own.

  1. Peel P50

At just 54 inches long and 41 inches wide, the Peel P50 holds the Guinness World Record as the world’s smallest production car of all time. It’s essentially a motorcycle engine on a small frame, but people who have driven the Peel P50 say it has more power than you could ever imagine.

  1. Commuter Cars Tango

The Commuter Cars Tango is a single seat electric car that’s no wider than your standard motorcycle. It’s easy to store just about anywhere and with a range of 240 miles you can even go on long trips with this tiny road warrior. With two electric surprisingly powerful motors that produce 3,000 lb-ft of torque the Commuter Cars can do 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.

  1. Iso Isetta

The Isetta is an Italian-designed microcar Because of its egg shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a bubble car, a name later given to other similar vehicles. In 1955, the BMW Isetta became the world's first mass-production car to get 94 mpg. Only 7.5 ft. long by and 4.5 ft. wide, the entire frontend of the car hinged outwards to allow entry. In the event of a crash, the driver and passenger were to exit through the canvas sunroof. The steering wheel and instrument panel swung out with the single door, as this made access to the single bench seat simpler.

  1. Autobianchi Bianchina

The Autobianchi Bianchina 500 was essentially a smaller version of the Fiat 500, a car that made our list of small cars with big plans, but this little road warrior also came in sedan, cabrio, wagon, and roadster body types. With its chrome trim and relatively plush interior, it was billed as a more upscale alternative to other microcars. With a roaring 22 hp it was also had a bit of kick. Then there was the utility van Bianchina 500 van, which was perfect for tiny contractors working in small houses.

  1. Fuldamobil

If the Smurfs were to design and build a car, it would probably look like (and be only slightly smaller than) the Fuldamobil. German company Elektromaschinenbau Fulda GmbH started manufacturing the endearingly bulbous Fuldamobil in 1950. At a glance, it appears to have three wheels, but look closely and you’ll see two wheels in the back spaced about an inch apart. Though, a three-wheeled version was also available for tax purposes.

Contenders that did not make our top 5: Honda N600, Piaggio Vespa 400, Fiat500, Goggomobil Dart, Pasquali Riscolo, Mini Cooper, Buddy Cab and the Reva G-Wiz.
