Fun Cars: Qi Quno

Posted by Stephen On Saturday, February 12th, 2011

I could have sworn I saw one of these electric cars in the auctions the other day.  You would be forgiven for thinking that this fun little electric car had been built for a live-action big screen remake of Noddy. Actually, it is an electric car created by CQ, a specialist Japanese manufacturer.

Qi Quno - electric car from Japan

Although it is a single-seater and cannot do much more than an NEV, even this secondhand one is being offered for sale at 750,000 Yen. With a max speed of 50km/h and max range of 80km, it has almost no practical use, so I cannot imagine that there will be many buyers. (Although if you watch the video below you will notice that it does seem to have a pretty good turn of acceleration.)

But you have to admit, though, that it is cute! And, by the way, “Quno” is apparently pronounced, “kew-noh“.
