2013 Toyota i-Road Concept


(from Toyota Press Release) Toyota i-Road

The Toyota i-Road is an ultra-compact mobility package that provides the convenience of a motorcycle and the comfort and stability of a car, offering an enjoyable riding experience unlike either a car or a motorcycle.

With a length of 850 mm and a compact closed cabin, the concept adopts a newly developed active lean system that raises and lowers the left and right front wheels to automatically optimize the vehicle angle, ensuring a stable ride and providing an unprecedented feel of unity with the vehicle.

Starting next year, the Toyota i-Road will be used in verification tests of the Ha:mo urban transport system in Toyota city, Japan, as well as in an ultra-compact urban EV car-sharing project to be conducted in the city of Grenoble, France.
