Pack 'em in

Ariel Schwartz at Fast Co.Exist:

A prototype of Hiriko, which was developed in collaboration with seven automotive suppliers in Spain, is so compact that passengers can only get out by pushing the glass shell open. It’s a good thing the car doesn’t require gas; there isn’t even room for a gas tank. But when folded, three Hiriko vehicles can fit into a single parking space.

If you have a 55 square foot (or 5 square meter) space you’re dying to cram a car into, you’ll have to wait. The consortium plans on first selling them to city governments for car sharing programs.
