La Bulle

Coqueline Courreges created the new design of the Bulle EV, meaning Bubble in French. Andre Courreges, her famous fashion designer husband, made a prototype in 1969 of a little battery powered car.

In 2002 Coqueline built a new prototype with Saft NiCad batteries and the latest electronic hardware.

La Bulle participated in the 2003 Michelin Challenge competition and media drive as one of about 200 green vehicles.
