Toyota iQ electric car

15 February 2011

Toyota iQ electric cars

 

Toyota is to give its electric vehicle – EV – prototype its European debut at the Geneva motor show in March.

Based on the current iQ model, the EV prototype represents Toyota’s long-term vision for short-range, sustainable mobility and demonstrates the adaptability of Hybrid Synergy Drive technology for a range of alternative power systems. The vehicle successfully integrates an all-electric powertrain within the iQ package, maintaining the car’s essential urban-friendly agility with zero tailpipe emissions and easy, silent electric running.

A newly developed, flat and compact lithium-ion battery has been accommodated beneath the vehicle floor without compromising loadspace or passenger accommodation. It provides enough charge to give the car a range of up to 65 miles*.

The EV prototype is being put through testing on European roads this year, with a potential market introduction through a leasing programme in 2012. Toyota has already announced its plans to bring the car to market in the USA and is also investigating its viability in other regions.

The EV prototype will be featured on the Toyota stand at Geneva alongside three models making their world-first appearance: Yaris HSD, Prius+ and FT-86 Concept II.
