As someone who drives and parks a car on the regular in New York City, this is definitely a car model I can get behind.
At 41-inches wide and 54-inches long, the Peel is the smallest production car in the world. First built for a brief period in the 1960s, the car was an expensive collectors’ item for decades until a couple of British entrepreneurs decided to bring the tiny car back–including a new electric version.
The U.K.-built car tops out at around 35 miles per hour, so it can’t go on highways. “They were built as city cars,” says Dan Goldstone, account manager for the manufacturer. “They’re tiny, easy to park, easy to drive around. As long as you’re not going hundreds of miles, you’re fine.”
