Toyota i-Road Set for Geneva

GD Star Rating

Toyota i-Road concept car

Toyota Motor Co. will unveil its super-secret i-Road concept car at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The electric three-wheeler looks like an insect in the overhead shot provided by Toyota. Besides that graphic, and a no-content short video of the car, virtually nothing is known about the i-Road. Because the car utilizes its 2-front-1-back wheel design to lean into turns, the tiny vehicle appears to be smartly arranged for fuel efficiency, stability and safety.

Toyota i-Road: Video

Toyota released a very short video introduction for the i-Road, which states that the concept headed for Geneva is “fun, compact and emission-free.” Offering no authentic shots of the car, interested parties will have to wait until the show opens its doors next week. In the meantime, a worthy use of our time includes a look back on former Geneva events. The video link above is a montage of the best from the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Known for its cutting-edge lineup, and for being one of the three most important auto shows on the global circuit, Geneva typically features cars from every segment and sub-segment. Racing concepts, traditional production models, hybrid muscle-cars, electric minis and all types of alternative fuel vehicles are on display for a gaggle of world media and hundreds of thousands of spectators each year at the Geneva Motor Show.

The automaker has provided no information on its plans to develop the i-Road for production. For now, it appears to be window dressing for the massive showcase that is Geneva. Because the show gives wide coverage to green technology and alternative fuels, most of the world’s automakers attempt to develop at least one tiny, urban EV or hybrid. If nothing else, many of the components often show up on more conventional models later on.

For more about Toyota vehicles, see the Japanese automaker’s official corporate website:
