The Mitsuoka MC-1 is a microcar produced by the Japanese company Mitsuoka. It has a top speed of 50 km/h (31 mph) and a 6 hp (4 kW) engine. It lacks many items a normal car would have, (i.e. radio, airbags and GPS). When the MC-1 first went on sale, it had a base price of 385,000 yen. By 2005, the price had become 488,250 yen. For the 2005 model year, the engine was shrunk by 1 cc to a 49 cc engine.

Mitsuoka wanted to make the MC-1 easy to take care of. There is even an owner's manual on Mitsuoka's website. The interior is simple, a large speedometer with some sensors, gear shifting stick, steering wheel and a seat. The body is mostly plastic. The 'doors' are fabric. For 2004, the MC-1 was slightly redesigned by adding a slit under the headlights.
It was marketed under the slogan, 'Microcar for your life.'
