Don’t worry let us tell you. When I am writing this article in 2019. There today more than 1 billion passenger cars travel the streets and roads of the world, and approximately 17 million cars and trucks are sold every year.
There are different types of vehicles and we will discuss the world’s smallest cars. So we love to know, we love to discuss.
Austin Coulson’s car.
Phoenix native Austin Coulson had a dream to make this car. According to the Guinness World Records website, the car is 25 inches high, 2 feet 1.75 inches wide and 4 feet 1.65 inches long. Coulson made the small beast in his garage, incorporating the body of a ‘57 Chevy Bel Air into the construction. He additionally used the engine, transmission, and drivetrain from a road-legal quad. It can not go over 25mph speed.
This small vehicle is full of features that you would normally associate with a traditional size ride: 9 inches by headlights, taillights, turn signals, rearview mirrors, seatbelt, a horn, and a 3-inch windshield. The vanity license plate reads “I’M BIG.” The exterior of the Jeep was inspired by the American U-51 Mustang military aircraft. Coulson also inscribed the sides of the jeep with the tail numbers of a World War II-era ship his grandfather worked on.
Peel P50 is one of the world’s smallest cars which is designed by Peel Engineering in 1962-1965 and remanufactured in 2010. It is a three-wheel car It is so small in fact, that it held the title of Guinness Book of World Record for the “smallest production car” for over 50 years. The Vintage Peel P50 is a great collector’s item with the character: it has no reverse gear, but a light car (250 lbs) can be picked up and carried if you want.

Its speed can reach up to 38 mph. It has one cylinder with a single seat and the engine is placed at the front side which uses petrol to run.
The original design of the car was conceived by Norbert Stevenson, a freelance journalist. These small cars manufactured by Electromassinchenbau Fulda GmbH of Fulda, Germany from 1950 to 1969, which length was 1.397 meters. The Norbert Stevenson design concept was for a very simple three-wheel car with room for two people, would have two wheels up front for stability, and would be powered by a smaller engine at the rear.
