Fuldamobil N2 was the longest produced microcar in the world. However its volumes were far lesser than what was produced in twenty years, a mere 3000.
Norbert Stevenson the cousin of the owner of Elektromaschinenbau Fulda* GmbH or Fulda Electro-mechanical Works (who were distributors of Bosch) felt that the Volkswagen Beetle that cost around 6000 marks was under-utilised by most since the rear seats went empty and there was a market for a lesser priced vehicle having two seats if built simpler.
* Fulda is located by the Fulda river in Hesse, Germany
So he embarks upon his dream by building a small vehicle using the engine of a Horex motorcycle. For some reason that didn't work out and then again tried with a Zuendapp 200 cc motorcycle engine. But this attempt also failed. Again he tried with a Fichtel & Sachs 360 cc engine when he finally succeeded in making his car go at 80 km/hr. But he was not happy with this engine. So this former soldier of Nazi Germany toyed with the idea of finishing his dream but after some time.
Finally after some time he buys the 2-stroke petrol engine of a Baker & Poelling chainsaw (undertaking to buy 100 more if his experiment succeeded). And so Fuldamobil N2 was born in the winter of 1949. With a chassis made out of tubular steel and a lightweight aluminium body that made the car lighter this microcar also was more economical.
