Tiny I

As part of the 1968 transformation experiment known as the new economic mechanism in Hungary, the Electricity Research Institute received a new director in the person of Dr. József Lukács.

“Related to air pollution in large cities, the international fight against high street noise and the development needs of modern special (postal, medical, agricultural) transport vehicles”, – Dr. József Lukács told.

Led by Rezső Denk, one of the heads of department, the 250-kilogram, two-piece open-top microcar with a 2.5 kW electric motor called the Tiny I was designed. At the Budapest International Fair, the four-seat Tiny I suitable for a speed of 35 km/h got a huge success. The possibility of mass production has already been explored in some – overly optimistic – newspaper articles.
