Prototype Nr. 2: New Light Bars in Action

Merlin Ouboter 24. May 2021

Our two teams in Switzerland and Italy are making good progress and Prototype Nr. 2 was finished in time. Since we are in the middle of our prototype testing we haven’t had the time yet to show you the new prototype, we will correct that now. But first here are the most important points:

  • The 2nd Microlino 2.0 prototype with the integrated front and rear LED lightbar is completed and being tested

  • The 3rd prototype that features the complete new interior will be finished in a few days from now

  • The first series vehicles will be unveiled in Munich at the IAA Mobility in September


The new prototype has implemented all the technical changes based on the learnings of the first prototype.

Visually speaking, the biggest change compared to the first prototype is the energy-efficient front and rear LED light bar. The front light bar has the turning and position light integrated and is complemented with the two round LED headlights. The rear light bar combines braking, turning and position lights in one element. Together they complement the retro look of the Microlino with a matching futuristic touch. Here is a little demonstration of how the lights looks like in action:



Despite the challenging times, the project is on track and we are keeping our timeline that we communicated in February.

The 3rd prototype is already under construction and expected to be finished in a few days from now. This will be an exciting one, as it will feature the completely redesigned interior and the new folding roof. Here is a little sneak-preview to bridge the waiting time.

Prototype Nr. 4 and Nr. 5 will be built up soon thereafter. These will be used mainly for the EU homologation and type approval this summer, which is necessary to start the series production.




We are happy to announce that we will exhibit at the IAA Mobility in Munich in September this year. From the 8th until the 12th of September we will present the first series vehicles of the Microlino 2.0.

Make sure to save the date and we are looking forward to welcoming you on our booth.
