Next Generation Urban Traffic System「TOYOTA i-ROAD」
The i-ROAD. An ultra-compact electric vehicle with only three wheels. A new breed of vehicle from
Toyota built using the latest technologies, offering exhilarating, compact mobility for short-distance
city driving. Its small footprint results in impressive maneuverability, navigating narrow streets
quickly and smoothly. These features mean the i-ROAD will contribute to decreased congestion and
need for parking, helping maintain clean communities that produce fewer greenhouse gases.
The i-ROAD will participate in urban transport trials from 2014 in Toyota City, Japan and in Grenoble, France.
Toyota’s Car for the Connected Future
Toyota believes that the car of the future will be far more than a simple machine. By equipping
vehicles with the latest in IT technology, we can build a more natural relationship between people
and their cars. The FV2 concept car is one step toward giving shape to this idea. Designed around
“Intuitive Connections,” you control the FV2 with your body’s motions, and the vehicle reacts to
your emotions as well.
