The Toyota i-Road is a concept car that was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2013. Features an electric drive train electric motor and two electric motors 2 kW, a battery feed ion battery that can be recharged via a household outlet. A charge has a range of 50km at a maximum speed of 45km/h. It is designed for use in town. No emissions at the point of use, being all-electric (nor in origin when using renewable electricity).
Car and Driver describes the Toyota i-Road as "a cross between a car, a motorcycle and a fancy golf cart." It is similar to the concept of a motorcycle, but it has three wheels. Toyota has developed what it calls "active support", a new technology that counteracts the centrifugal force when the vehicle goes around a corner and smooth passage over rough terrain. "Active support" operates using onboard computer on each side of the front suspension, to calculate the degree of inclination necessary based on input from the steering mechanism, the gyroscope angle and speed. To compensate for the road conditions, the front wheel is adjusted up or down, as necessary to stabilize the vehicle. According to Wired, the technology "lets bomb through curves without tipping over."
Toyota refers to it as a "personal mobility vehicle". It is less than 0.90 m wide and can accommodate two people in an enclosed cabin to protect the occupants from the environment. Its turning radius is less than 0.90 m. The width is 850 mm, about the same width as a motorcycle, and four of these vehicles can be parked in one parking space.
