 Engineers Develop a Folding Car to Squeeze into Tiny Parking Spaces

Engineers have created an uber-compact electric car, which folds completely and squeezes into the tightest of parking spots.

The pint-sized Hiriko Fold city car is expected to hit the market next year, Discovery News reported.

The proposed cost of the car is 16,000 dollars and it gets 75 miles between charges.

The Hiriko Fold features wheels that have a zero turning radius and are capable of turning sideways.

Created by DENOKINN and MIT's Changing Places group, the itsy-bitsy buggy is just five feet long and has room for two passengers.

The Hiriko Fold is slated to go on sale in 2013 in Barcelona, Berlin and San Francisco.
