Micro Cars 

2 companies

Microcar is a French automobile manufacturer known for specializing in the production of microcars, which are very small, often compact vehicles. The company is particularly noted for producing vehicles that fall under the European category of "light quadricycles" or "voiturettes" – a classification that typically refers to vehicles with limited engine capacity and top speed, and which can often be driven without a full driver's license in some European countries.

Key aspects of Microcar's history and products include:

  1. Establishment and Focus: Microcar was founded in the 1980s, and it carved out a niche in manufacturing small, lightweight vehicles. These cars are designed for ease of driving and parking in urban environments, and they cater to drivers who may not have a full driving license, such as teenagers in some European countries or individuals who have lost their license.

  2. Quadricycle Classification: Microcar's vehicles are categorized as quadricycles – a European vehicle category that includes lightweight vehicles with restrictions on weight, power, and speed. These vehicles are more regulated than full-sized cars but less so than motorcycles, offering a balance between the two.

  3. Design and Models: Microcar's range typically includes compact two-seater vehicles, characterized by their small size, fuel efficiency, and practicality for urban use. Over the years, Microcar has introduced various models with different features and designs to cater to the specific needs of its market segment.

  4. Acquisition and Expansion: In the 2000s, Microcar was acquired by Ligier, another French manufacturer known for producing similar types of vehicles. This acquisition allowed for a pooling of resources and expertise, helping to strengthen the presence of both brands in the microcar market.

  5. Market and Demographics: Microcar, along with other similar manufacturers, primarily targets the European market, where there is a demand for small, economical vehicles due to urban congestion, high fuel prices, and unique licensing laws.

  6. Current Status: As of my last update, Microcar, under the Ligier Group, continues to produce and market a range of microcars, adapting to evolving consumer needs and regulatory standards. This includes the development of electric models, in line with the growing trend towards eco-friendly vehicles.

Microcar is thus recognized for its contribution to the niche market of microcars and light quadricycles, offering mobility solutions that are particularly suited to the unique demands and constraints of urban driving in Europe.
