The smallest car in the world is the Peel P50, measuring just 1.14 meters in length and 0.61 meters in width.
The Peel P50 is a microcar manufactured in the 1960s on the Isle of Man in the British Isles. It is one of the smallest and lightest cars in the world, weighing just 59 kilograms. It has one seat for the driver and a small space for storing luggage. The Peel P50 was originally designed as an urban car for easy parking and maneuvering in narrow streets, but it never went into mass production. Today, the Peel P50 is considered a collector’s item and is exhibited in car museums around the world.
The Peel P50 had a top speed of only 40 km/h. Its range was limited by a single fuel tank with a capacity of 3.6 liters, which allowed it to travel up to 64 km without the need to refuel.
The price of the Peel P50 in the 1960s was around £200, which would be equivalent to approximately £2,400 in today’s pounds. This is a relatively low price compared to other cars of the time, but the low number of units produced and the lack of customer interest ultimately led to the end of production.
