Toyota i-Road


Toyota unveiled its thin 3-wheeled i-Road personal mobility vehicle at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The narrow vehicle has a width of 850 millimeters (2.79 feet). Toyota says this helps with maneuverability and also makes it easy to find a parking space. The vehicle contains "Active Lean" technology that automatically balances the i-Road when it is cornering or traveling over stepped surfaces.

Toyota says in a release that the i-Road is powered by an electric powertrain and produces zero emissions. The driving range on a single charge of its lithium ion battery is 50 kilometers (30 miles).

Toyota released this video of the i-Road in action. Part of the video show multiple different colored i-Roads on the road. Take a look:
