The Viper may be faster - but the Velomobile gets better mileage

OK...Velomobiles may not be true microcars. They are probably closer to bicycles than to cars - but we thought that anyone interested in small cars should take a look at them as well.

We found this image on a Velomobile site from Norway,

As it turns out, Veolmobiles and microcars do have some common links. Charles Mochet (France) is credited as the developer of the first velomobiles...recumbent bicycles that he named Velocars. And microcar enthusiasts will recognize the Velocar and Mochet as light French microcars (engines were fitted on some models). French versions of what the English referred to as cyclecars.

So, there you have it.
