Usain Bolt, a retired Jamaican sprinter, unveiled at the Viva Technology conference in Paris, France an interesting new all-electric tiny two-seater called the B-Nano. It's very small (up to 4 B-Nano can park in one full-size parking space), with a 1+1 layout like in Renault Twizy.

The B-Nano was designed for car sharing in cities with a driving profile of between 2-15 miles. The unique feature of the B-Nano is the easily swappable battery. Staff will be able to swap batteries wherever the cars are parked, instead of re-parking them or building charging stations.

Bolt Mobility was already engaged in the shared electric scooters business, deploying a fleet in Paris.

The Bolt B-Nano could become reality next year.
