Armec City Mobil

This ‘cabin scooter’ prototype from a Swiss sidecar maker was only 900 mm wide and 2250 mm long. Like the Carver, the front half tilted as it went round bends, the rear section remaining upright. The driver used conventional foot pedals and a continuously variable automatic transmission mated to a 600cc four-cylinder engine (electric, diesel and hybrid options were also mooted), and a top speed of l00 mph (160 km/h) was claimed. The ‘gullwing’ type door could be made to open up for targa-style driving. Finance was still being sought for a production run in 2009.
