Usain Bolt unveils tiny electric urban car called Nano

By RELAXNEWS | 18 May 2019

PARIS: Following his announcement of the Parisian launch of his for-hire electric scooter, Usain Bolt took to the stage at Viva Technology 2019 here to reveal a brand new car designed specially to address the challenges of tomorrow's urban mobility.

Billing itself as a small urban car, the Bolt Nano (no relation to the failed Tata Nano of India) will be available by the end of 2020 and can already be pre-ordered online for a US$999 (RM4,172) deposit.

The vehicle can accommodate two people and features a unique removable battery feature. Naturally, the Bolt Nano is intended for short trips and is bound to draw interest from car-sharing companies.

This unique urban car also sets itself apart by its extremely compact footprint (it could almost be driven through a building's front door) that will allow many units to fit on one single parking spot.

Its entry-level price should be around US$9,999 (RM41,756).
