    'Maggiolino'...

    Yes, it is a rebranded Beetle (well, not rebranded in terms of the manufacturer, but the model name).

    Is it for a different market? That is usually where that kind of rebranding happens.

    In some markets, the Beetle name is simply translated into a local language. Maggiolino is a version for Italy.

    Shuanghuan Noble (Pictured as a Wheego Whip/LiFe)

    Wheego_Whip_all_electric_WAS_2010_9052.jpg

    Though I prefer its secondary name: Shuanghuan Bubble

    The Wikipedia article about the Noble refers to a 17.1 second 0-62 time as a "sprint" up to its 88MPH top speed.

    Miata is old high German for "reward". Quite a suitable name for the Mazda MX-5 IMO.
