The Hiriko city car is the latest and greatest electrical cars have to offer. The Hiriko city car is not from GM, Chrysler or Ford but rather the brainy bunch over at MIT. A prototype has been designed in partnership with several auto suppliers and prides itself on being small, innovative and environmentally friendly.

The Hiriko city car is an electric and can go 72 miles on a single charge. The tiny electrical auto is loaded with intriguing innovations such as 360 degree turning wheels, foldability and an interesting shape and design that is easily noticeable. The 360 degree turning wheels allow for the perfect turns, and potentially take the hassle out of three-point turns and parallel parking. Speaking of parking, the Hiriko car can actually fold up to allow for three of these collapsible cars to fit in a single standard-sized parking spot.

These pint-sized models are stirring up the auto world and are set for release in 2013.
