Toyota i-Road - Electric Personal Mobility Vehicle

The Toyota i-Road Personal Mobility Vehicle (PMV) – a new form of transportation offering greater flexibility in the urban environment – makes its World Premiere at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Offering a comfortable, enclosed environment for two occupants seated in tandem, the compact Toyota i-Road Electric Vehicle (EV) features unique, ‘Active Lean‘ technology to provide a safe, intuitive and enjoyable, helmet-free driving experience over a range of up to 50 km on a single charge.

2,350 mm long, 1,445 mm height and with a wheelbase of 1,700 mm, the ultra-compact, three-wheeled Toyota i-Road’s key dimension is a width of only 850 mm, about the same as that of a conventional two-wheeler. This not only equips the Toyota i-Road with the latter’s ability to manoeuvre freely through even the most congested traffic, but also makes it possible to park four of the new Toyota PMVs in a single car parking bay.

The Toyota i-Road’s zero-emission, all-electric powertrain features a lithium-ion battery providing power to a pair of 2 kW electric motors mounted within the front wheels. Combining brisk acceleration with near-silent running, the new Toyota PMV has a range of some 50 km, after which it may be fully recharged from a conventional household power outlet in just three hours.
