The Nobe 100, a Beautiful, Retro Electric 3-Wheeler from Estonia
By Rain Noe
Still just a prototype, this Estonian-made three-wheeled electric vehicle has the flair of a ’60s-era Alfa Romeo Giulietta front and boattail Spider rear, while the inside is go-for-a-picnic charming. But it carries the modernity of a lithium-ion battery pack. As a three-wheeler, it will be graded as a motorcycle, not a car (including not having to pass U.S. crash standards, hmm). Nobe is still in startup mode, but if you want to get in on the ground floor, they’re launching a Kickstarter in April.

It’s yet another example of the kind of quirky and unexpected vehicles that turn up at the Geneva show.
