Toyota i-Road EV Concept
Automobile giant Toyota has recently showcased a couple of new innovative and unique concepts at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show held on March 2013. The Toyota “I-Road” Concept EV was first unveiled to world automobile enthusiasts via official images and videos uploaded on the internet well before the grand world premiere held at the Swiss city. The FT86 Open Top was the first conceptual vehicle launched at Geneva. However it was the amazing” I-Road” concept car that made heads turn at the auto show for the innovative design principles employed while fabricating the vehicle. According to media reports Toyota's brand new “I-Road” EV is a spectacular three wheeled; electric powered zero emission personal mobility vehicle. It employs a futuristic three wheel design instead of the industry standard four wheel configurations usually employed in cars. The back side of the vehicle sports only one wheel which performs the role of handling the steering functionality of the EV. A pair of compact wheels fitted at the front area of the EV enables it to bend like a motorbike while retaining the comfort and stability of a car. The stunning compact environmentally friendly vehicle is completely emission free and hence helps to promote the 'Go Green' revolution by ensuring zero pollution levels. The auto manufacturer even claims that the innovative vehicle provides all safety features offered by normal four wheeled vehicles. The EV delivers respite from issues that constantly dog conventional cars like ever increasing fossil fuel prices and limited parking spaces. Reportedly the compact electric vehicle can travel a maximum distance of 50 km after being charged for three hours in a single session. The little vehicle is approximately 850mm wide which is comparable to the size of a conventional motorcycle. The dimensions of the “Toyota I-Road” stand at 2350mm in length, 1445 mm in height and a wheelbase measured at 1700 mm. The stunning electric vehicle derives it power from a pair of 2KW electric motors mounted inside each of its front wheels. It seems that the magnificent “I-Road” is one of Toyota's numerous personal mobility concepts which can actually be translated into the shape and functionality of a real car. Incidentally the “I-Road” is conceptually very similar to the “Renualt Twizy”.
