Microcar is a term used for the smallest size of cars, with three or four wheels and often an engine smaller than 700 cc (43 cu in).
Specific types of microcars include bubble cars, cycle cars, invacar, and quadricycles.
In some countries microcars are covered by separate regulations to normal cars with relaxed requirements for registration and licensing.
Microcars were popular in Europe after World War II but declined in popularity in the 1960s.
They are becoming more popular due to their compact size, electric drive trains and low cost.
