Toyota has recently pulled the wraps off the i-Road Concept, ahead of the model’s official debut scheduled for the 5th of March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
According to the car manufacturer, the Toyota i-Road can carry two people in tandem and it has a weather proof cover and body, 850 mm wide, which has been designed in order for easy maneuverability on crowded city streets. The Toyota i-Road Concept is 2,350 mm long, 1,445 mm tall and it’s riding on a wheelbase of 1,700 mm. Toyota says that the i-Road Concept can be driven without a crash helmet and it can be parked in a single car parking bay.
The Toyota i-Road concept is coming with an all-electric powertrain, using a lithium-ion battery in order to power the two 2kW motors mounted on the front wheels. The total driving range stands at 30 miles and then the batteries can be recharged in three hours, using a regular power supply. Toyota didn’t announce its plans yet to put the i-Road Concept into production but this is inevitable. Additional details on the Toyota i-Road concept are limited for the moment and will be announced during the Swiss automotive event, on the 5th of March.
