We are fun electric cars, full of character, for two persons and ECOLOGIC. With the Bubble you can discover the secrets that make Madeira Island one of the most unique Islands in the world. Hire one of these City Bubble cars and have fun zipping around in a fully electric Bubble. These cars have a range of 100km on a full charge, and a top speed of 90km/h. They are fun, safe and easy to drive. All cars come with a tablet and internet connection, you can choose from some GPS guided tours around Madeira Island, pointing out interesting buildings, gardens, monuments and so on. Or you can just take off and discover Madeira yourself. Use the tablet to snap some photos, and upload them to your social networks or send straight to your email inbox. You will see what you want, when you want, at the exact moment that you want. One car, two persons and a lot of fun.
