The world of electric cars just got a lot cuter thanks to the Nobe 100, a three-wheeled electric vehicle built in Estonia that looks inspired by the Fiat 500, the Saab 96 and Messerschmitt KR 175.
Capable of speeds up to 68 miles per hour and with a driving range of 136 miles per charge, the Nobe is and all-wheel-drive trike. The power is sent to the two front wheels as well as the one in the back. Nobe’s founder, Roman Muljar, says that one of the primary goals with the Nobe 100 was to create something so effortlessly stylish that you want to lick it.
Up front, the grille bears a strong resemblance to vintage Alfa Romeos. The tapering tail ends in a sleek single-bar taillamp, while narrow whitewall tires add to the overall vintage look and feel. The same theme carries into the minimalist cabin, where the driver is greeted by a large thin-rimmed steering wheel that looks like it could have been taken from a 1950s-era Mercedes 300SL.
