Toyota i-Road provides the convenience of a motorcycle and the comfort and stability of a car
Toyota will display five world-premiere concept vehicles including Toyota i-Road in its Toyota exhibit at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show. Under the slogan Fun to Drive, Again, the concept vehicles convey Toyota’s vision of a future mobility society that values the joy of driving. The Toyota i-Road is an ultra-compact mobility package that provides the convenience of a motorcycle and the comfort and stability of a car, offering an enjoyable riding experience for two unlike either a car or a motorcycle.
With a length of 850 mm and a compact closed cabin, the concept adopts a newly developed active lean system that raises and lowers the left and right front wheels to automatically optimize the vehicle angle, ensuring a stable ride and providing an unprecedented feel of unity with the vehicle.
Starting next year, the Toyota i-Road will be used in verification tests of the Ha:mo urban transport system in Toyota city, Japan, as well as in an ultra-compact urban EV car-sharing project to be conducted in the city of Grenoble, France.
