Video: Toyota Gives i-Road Report From The Tokyo Motor Show – Takes For A Spin
Few electric vehicles are as eye opening as the Toyota i-Road, and even fewer still look as much like a concept-only vehicle as the i-Road.
Yet Toyota announced their supermini city EV is going into limited production for public trials in Japan.
Since that announcement, Toyota has been keen to not only show off the i-Road whenever and wherever possible, but also to have it in motion.
Now the Japanese company files this report and interview with designer – Mr. Yanaka from the Tokyo Motor Show. But past the talking bits of the clip, we just really like to watch the i-Road in motion.
Some random specs on the i-Road:
- Driving range is 31 miles
- Max speed is 28 mph
- Curb weight is 661 pounds
- Horsepower maxes out at 5.4
It should also be noted that although this video shows the concept 2-seat i-Road in action, the production vehicle will only be a one seater – we have a feeling it has something to do with all that leaning it does, and safety concerns with two people riding on public roads.
