Frustrated trying to park when driving around downtown? A City Transformer could be the answer. The Israel-based startup’s two-seater electric vehicle is tiny, but can reach speeds of up to 55 miles per hour. Even better, when you’re not traveling at cruising speeds, the vehicle can retract its wheels, pulling them closer to achieve a one-meter width for narrow streets and snug spots—four of them fit into a standard parking spot. While the car is still in the prototype phase, the start-up expects the first vehicles to be on the road in Tel Aviv by 2022, with mass production beginning in 2023. —Patrick Lucas Austin
