The Takayanagi Miluira is a quirky, steam punk style electric
car from Japan. It also happens to have one of the most
difficult to spell names.
The Takayanagi Miluira is minute in almost every single
way. It's 2.18 meters long, 1.28 meters wide and 1.15
meters high. It's overall weight is just 350 kgs (771
lbs), and it can only carry one person, the driver.
Power for the Takayanagi Miluira comes from a pair of
electric motors, both driving the rear wheels. The six
batteries are spread out at both the front and rear of
the car to better distribute weight. With its all-electric
drivetrain the Takayanagi Miluira can reach a top speed
of just 37 mph (60 km/h). The maximum range is only 22
miles (35 km).
Now if the Takayanagi Miluira was being marketed as some
sort of fancy golf cart - and had a price tag which reflected
its humble performance - then it would be a worthy little
However the fact the Takayanagi Co. expect people to hand
over 6.3 million Yen - nearly $75,000 (£47,000)
makes it a bad joke at best!
