Too bad it's electric. I'm also not a fan of it's design. I'd absolutely prefer something more retro, but I guess this car is supposed to appeal to the youngest customers, which means more screens, electronics and other flashy gadgets. I guess I'm not interested in this car  ;D

May be that the UK licencing laws don't help as some countries allow microcars as well as mopeds before getting a full car licence.

For example I see no issue in adding an engine from motorcycles, let's say Yamaha or Honda. They are efficient, lightweight and won't take much gas. They won't be slow too  8)

I think the biggest thing is meeting current safety standards with a micro car.

And emissions!

True although there are still plenty of 2 stroke bikes out there

I received my RUM CAR NEWS on Saturday.  Another cracking magazine which includes Jeff Lane's story of the Peels to Peel meet on the Isle of Man which bought back very good memories of meeting him there.  Thank you Chris leep up the good work.  Jean

Dear Rumcar news Readers
I am pleased to inform you that the paper copies of Rumcar News were posted last night (27 August 2020) and the digital copies were sent off at lunchtime today (28 August 2020) a full two weeks early. Thanks to all of the contributors who provided so much, some of my regular items like Russell Brockbank cartoon, Book review and New car News, had to be left out, and will hopefully be back in the next issue.
In this issue there are articles about, and from, the USA, Germany, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Austria and of course the UK. Covering the following vehicle: Cyclops II, Kapi Super 350, Circus 2cv, Ubanina, Jurisch, Shelter, Iso Isetta and Peel Trident.
I can guarantee that there is historical information in this issue that you will not have read before in any other publication.
I do hope those of you who subscribe to Rumcar News will enjoy reading this issue.

Keep safe
Chris Thomas
