The electric vehicle runs on a motor using electricity from an external charging supply as a power source. As it does not use gasoline, it generates zero CO2 emissions during operation. It is set to become an important part of the eco-car line-up that will lead the way into the future. To overcome the limited range which is a current issue, Toyota is engaged in tireless research and development to improve battery performance and advance related technologies.
The ultra-compact size, just 870 mm in width, makes it easy to maneuver even in tight spaces. On congested city streets, the vehicle doesn't take up the whole traffic lane, while parking is possible in one half to one quarter of the space of a regular vehicle.
This vehicle has the convenience of a motorbike, yet requires no helmet, and offers the comfortable drive of a car, with no risk of getting wet on rainy days. As balance is automatically maintained by the vehicle and not the driver, it has a stable driving feel even on curves and slopes, making it possible for anyone to zip along with complete confidence.
Not only is there no need for a gasoline engine, but the battery has also been made more compact, creating an interior with space for four adult passengers.
Designed and sized for life in urban areas where space is limited. Makes for enjoyable and convenient driving even in narrow streets and congested areas.
Electric vehicles are a promising option for use in urban areas. Toyota offers ideal options for a range of different usage scenarios.
