The world’s smallest car

Made from 1962 to 1965, the world’s smallest production car – that is, made for general consumption, not the Shriners – the Peel P50 has three wheels, can go up to 38mph, and seats “one adult and a shopping bag.” She’s 54” long and 41” wide, and weighs 130 pounds.

Features do not include more than one door, blinkers, automatic transmission, or a reverse gear. What she does have is an impressive 83 MPG fuel efficiency.

You can see her in action in this video below:
