Admittedly, it was a nice virtual show given by the 26- and 27-year-old Microlino founders and brothers Merlin and Oliver Ouboter. Someone explained the previous difficulties in conception, development and production in front of an open fire and on a leather sofa. The other praised the advantages of the newly developed Microlino 2.0 with a self-supporting steel chassis Compared to the first Microlino 1.0 with a space frame. They were also surprised by the direct contact with Italian production partner Cecomp.
Everything is already known
But there was nothing new to learn yesterday. We’ve already written that the first cars in Switzerland should be available to customers this year. The information that there should be four different editions in addition to the first Pioneer series limited to 999 copies for particularly loyal pre-orders wasn’t new either.
The base model will be the Urban version, with a 6 kWh battery and a range of 91 km. Available from the second quarter of 2023 at the earliest, the Pioneer Series, first available in two different colors, will have a 10.5 kWh battery and offer a range of 177 km.
Couldn’t find out more yesterday. Neither exact prices nor binding start of delivery. Microlino keeps its fans (there are said to be 30,000 reservations from all over the world) in suspense. And in the virtual presentation forum, there were also the first malicious comments like “We already know all that” or “Please don’t lie, we finally want to order.”
When asked by Blick, Merlin Ouboter only said, “Pricing for all versions is available at the start of the configurator, which will start working in 1-2 weeks.” Until then, Microlino fans will have to continue to be patient.
