The latest entry into the market for super tiny cars that can fit into super tiny parking spaces may come from Israel with a car that can shrink itself.

Shrink its wheelbase, that is, to about the width of a motorcycle.

Compare that to a bigger branded tiny car like the Smart Fortwo which is over six feet wide and... can't shrink.

The startup behind it, City Transformer, says it will also cost a lot less than a new Smart when it's released in about a year: $13,000 as opposed to over $20,000.

The global market for electric cars like this is rapidly expanding but trends suggest the appetite for compact cars may be slowing, particularly in North America.

It will be interesting to see where this car fits in.
