To provide buyers with high power and amazing speed are the parameters prioritize by the automaker to catch attention and gain profits. But not all cars are this speedy or powerful. Let’s discuss some of the world’s slowest cars.
Some Of The World’s Slowest Cars
The five slowest cars in the world are:
The Pinto Bean Peel P50
A car slower than even a tortoise: Peel P50. With a length of 54 inches (1,370mm) and width of 41 inches (1,040mm) Peel P50 is has only three wheels. This car holds the world’s tiniest car in production title in the Guinness book of World Record. This car is so small that can easily be driven in the corridors of BBC Television. This amazingly iconic car is even smaller than the red and yellow play cars of the eighties and nineties. This car is light weighted, with miniscule design, a CVT transmission and powered by a moped 3.35hb engine. one can seldom exceed more than 35 mph. One of the cons of Peel P50 is that safety level is not high on this car. Peel P50’s electric version has a speed limit of 30mph.
The Azonic Aixam Coupe
Aixam Coupe is one of the most lavish cars among the world’s slowest cars with its length of 118.11 in. (3000 mm) and width of 59.06 in. (1500 mm). It is powered by a 400cc two-cylinder diesel engine 5.6 hp. The Aixam Coupe appears very sporty and has a classy look. In fact, in countries like UK there is no need of a driving license to drive this car. Also, teens with 16 years of age can drive it too after passing the morphed test. It is a four tired car with two full size doors and a tiny luggage space. Aixam Coupe is years ahead in design and model than Peel P50. It has a speed of 30mph only and thus, obviously least preferred for a car race. This surprisingly charming car is very light weighted and a quadricycle ‘carped’ two-seater coupe.
The next car on this list of five slowest moving cars of the world is Mitsubishi Mirage.
Launched in 2021 after several upgrades, this subcompact car has its slow speed as the main issue. The maximum speed of this car is 125 miles per hour and it derives power through a small 1.2-liter engine with 78 horsepower. It has a length of 151.4 in. (3845mm) and width is 65.6 inches (1665mm). One of the cons of Mitsubishi Mirage is that it lacks behind its other subcompacts in comfort and thrill. It has a speed of 62mph only and takes 12 seconds to gather acceleration. With CVT, the main advantages of this car are its Fuel economy and emissions.
Toyota C-HR is again another ‘only for the purpose of show’ car, one than cannot be chosen for the busy and fast paced lifestyle. The main advantage of Toyota C-HR is that is designed with the aim of providing high fuel efficiency. Toyota C-HR is an SUV with continuous variable transmission and a weak engine powered by 2.0 L 4-cylinder of 144 hp. It has a limited cabin space and unsatisfying speed. Other than that, the appearance of the car is one of the sportiest among the other 2021 cars of a similar category. It takes 11 seconds to accelerate and reach 60mph. It is 70.7 in (1795mm) wide and 171.2 in. (4390mm) long.
Toyota Corolla Hybrid
The final name of this list of the World’s slowest cars is Toyota Corolla Hybrid. Though this Toyota is classy looking and has good fuel economy efficiency, the car takes 10.9 seconds to accelerate and reach to sixty mph. The length and width of the Toyota Corolla Hybrid are 182.3 in. (4,530 mm) and 69.88 in. (1,705 mm) respectively. The weak engine of only 121 hp is powered by a 1.8 L 4-cylinder with a Continuous variable transmission.
We have become so habitual the modern cars with high speed and additional torque that we tend to not prefer the slower ones. These slower cars may not be able to match the hardships of our fast-paced life routine but are surely a work of art and have their own qualities which may not be available in those with hybrid technology. The above mentioned are just five of the otherwise long list of the world’s slowest cars.
