Sbarro Assystem City Car Shocked Geneva

This unusual vehicle made its debut at Geneva and to tell the truth, shocked everybody a bit. First of all, it was designed by Franco Sbarro and it is his (I mean this vehicle) second time at Geneva, but, of course, some modifications were occurred.

What I like the most about this car, it proposes a plenty of very original solutions for a variety of car problems. For instance, parking issues, with Sbarro Assystem City Car it is unbelievably easy to park (first of all, due to this car small dimensions, then it has 3 axles, and finally ’cause of it light weight).

The car has a very unusual shape, it consists of 3 wheels and the front wheel is powered by an electrical engine with 20 kW (about 27 cv), that’s why the car can go up to 50 km/h of top speed and gets 30 km of autonomy. Not enough? Actually, most people don’t need more for everyday driving.

The City Car has 2 engines and they can operate together, so the car can be named a hybrid.

The company-manufacturer really wants to put this car on the streets ASAP. It is said, the car can carry up to five people and their luggage.
