Look at the Corbin Sparrow if you can find them. They're about the same size, didn't have a long production run, but are electric.

The first car ever running live! The Smallest Car in the World at the BBC - Top Gear - BBC 5 months ago   02:36

This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.

From Wikipedia:
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873, Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen (or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.
