Revisiting the Miniature 1981 Mercedes-Benz Nahverkehrsfahrzeug Concept

Revisiting the Miniature 1981 Mercedes-Benz Nahverkehrsfahrzeug Concept

This is the Nahverkehrsfahrzeug. Don't ask us, we're not sure how to say it either. Just call it the NAFA for short. It was made in 1981 and was a brand-bending concept from Mercedes-Benz that ended up as the precursor for the A-Class and the Smart ForTwo. The tiny vehicle, which basically looks like a chopped-off front end of an old Mazda minivan, was 2.50 meters long, 1.50 meters wide, and 1.50 meters tall. It's even got the side-sliding doors, and those ridiculous rims top off this magnificent midget.
