As part of the 1968 transformation experiment known as the new economic mechanism in Hungary, the Electricity Research Institute (Villamosipari Kutató Intézet) received a new CEO in the person of Dr. József Lukács.
In 1971, Rezső Denk, one of the heads of department, and his colleagues made a cute buggy prototype. The beautiful Tiny 70 was presented at the 1971 Budapest International Fair. Presumably, at the suggestion of József Cserny, the body was made of the revolutionary fiberglass-reinforced plastic in Hungary! This was due to the high weight of lead-acid batteries.
The same plastic body lated was used to built 3 prototypes of Trabant-based buggy by János Kesjár jr.
