        That Hummer thing is slated to be way north of $100,000 and is still limited to 300 miles per charge.

          It looks like an Alfa Romero front end collided with an 60's English Ford Anglia roof line and a Morgan 3 wheeler. Still, kinda cute. Where is the company headquarters? Where will the cars be manufactured/assembled in the CONUS? I am guessing either Germany or Scandinavia HQ only guessing about the phone number posted on the web site. Site says there are 18 ordered at the present time.

          It will be interesting to see if this will be like the Dale or Elio. Currently, you can get a Polaris Slingshot for a starting price of $19,000 made by a company that has several vehicles to sell, most off road. Drawback is the Slingshot is a roadster not an enclosed body like the Nobe nor is it an Electrical Vehicle.

          Brent, let us know if you decide to take the plunge and put down $2,500 to $4,500 for an order.

            Here is an article from CNN: Forget SUVs. These auto makers think tiny electric cars are the next big thing - CNN

            Nobe's GT100

            Nobe was founded in Estonia, a small country near Finland, in 2017.
            "It's a tough little country," said founder Roman Muljar.
            But Muljar wanted to find an even tougher market to start selling his tiny three-wheeled car, the GT100. So he's planning to start manufacturing with a not-yet-announced partner in the United States, one of the most competitive vehicle markets in the world. He said he hopes to begin production early next year.

            The charmingly retro GT100 looks like a cross between a sporty post-World War II Italian sedan and a steam iron. There's a hint of Alfa Romeo in the three-part grille and a bit of Black+Decker Classic around the taillights. The little whitewall tires fit the mid-20th-century theme. The interior features a thin-rimmed steering wheel with a chrome horn button.
            The GT100 seats two people, with room for luggage, according to the company, and is expected to have a driving range of 180 miles and a top speed of 80 miles an hour. Muljar boasts that the simple and lightweight car is fun to drive.
            "You are back in the Golden Age of motoring," he said.
            The cars will sell for $24,000 for the hard-top version, Muljar said, and $29,000 for a planned convertible. And while a Tesla Model 3 might seat five and go more than a 100 miles more on a charge, it also sells for over $10,000 more than the Nobe.
            Nobe, which is pronounced like "no bay," is already planning its next product, a small four-wheeled pickup truck. That truck, which looks like a miniature 1950s American pickup, doesn't have a name yet.

              I would assume that a U.S. spec Nobe would need front and rear bumpers, though being classified as an auto-cycle may negate that requirement. As for preordering one, no thanks! I do hope to see one in person and take one for a spin in the not too distant future.

                Thanks for the additional information Brent. I wonder if the No Bay will be sold on EBAY

                  To me the rear quarter windows were stolen from the Avanti.

                    This makes me remember the Freeway (three wheels). The local dealer died when his flipped over on a state highway on his way home from the dealership.

                      To me it looks more like an old Saab than a Caesar Romero, er, ...I mean Alfa Romeo.

                        I drove one of those once. Sketchy.

                        In many states you need a motorcycle endorsement to drive anything licensed with three wheels. I think this is odd since it means you wouldn't need a MC endorsement to ride a licensed quad. I think if you sit in it and drive it, it's a car, if you sit on it and ride it you should have the MC endorsement.

                          I would lean more to the Aptera, with a base model coming in at about the same price, and manufactured primarily in the U.S., as if that makes any difference anymore.

                              Thanks. I didn't think of that one. The Freeway was a brand new car, so it wasn't a failure of an old part or old tire.
