Paris Motor Show LIVE: Toyota eQ unveiled

Toyota has pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the eQ, during the 2012 edition of the Paris Motor Show.

The Toyota eQ, which started its public life as the iQ EV, has been officially presented to the public at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in an European premiere, ahead of its launch which has been scheduled for December. Toyota says that the eQ’s “green” powertrain is producing a total output of 64 HP (47 kW) and 163 Nm of torque (120 lb-ft), which is allowing the model to reach a top speed of 125 km/h (78 mph). The 12 kWh lithium-ion battery is assuring a total range of 100 km (62 miles) on a single charge.

The battery can be completely recharged when depleted in 3 to 8 hours, but with the Toyota’s Fast Charging System, the time can even drop to 15 minutes, but then the battery will be just 80 percent filled. The Toyota eQ can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 14 seconds and the model is now 125 heavier than the regular version because of the lithium-ion batteries which have been mounted under the floor. More details on the eQ will be announced close to its launch.
