41 Magnificent Mini Vehicles

From Bite-Sized Microcars to Street-Legal Golf Carts

— December 8, 2012 — Autos
Mini vehicles are multifunctional, have the capacity of full-sized vehicles and can help reduce harm to the environment.

Mini vehicles can cut back costs in a lot of ways. They conserve gas, some come in electric versions and they are significantly cheaper. These compact cars, carts, pods and cycles are adorable and equipped for the road. They are ideal for traveling long distances because they aren't gas guzzlers and you can maneuver with ease on the road. Miniature vehicles come in the same finishes as other cars, often with upgrades and can even be tricked out. For instance, you can get custom work done, buy special edition models or scoop up a designer-collaborated version.

Mini vehicles are a great option whether you want to cruise slow or fast.
