Whether you drive your own car, or take public transport to work, getting around places can be expensive and time consuming. But what if you could commute on something that is small enough to fit inside of your purse?

A Japanese company has recently introduced the WalkCar, the world’s smallest electric car that is the size of a laptop and is made out of lightweight aluminum.
