Bold Toy­ota’s a city slicker

Auto Express - - News -

THIS is the Toy­ota I-TRIL, a Geneva Mo­tor Show con­cept de­signed to demon­strate how the Ja­panese man­u­fac­turer thinks ur­ban mo­bil­ity will look in the fu­ture.

The I-TRIL is a fully elec­tric three-seater, with a one-plus-two lay­out. It fea­tures Toy­ota’s Ac­tive Lean tech­nol­ogy, as seen on the pre­vi­ous I-ROAD show car, and is de­signed as an al­ter­na­tive to ev­ery­thing from city cars to mo­tor­bikes. Toy­ota says the seat­ing con­fig­u­ra­tion – with one oc­cu­pant up front and two in the sec­ond row – means that the I-TRIL can ac­com­mo­date three adults.

The bat­tery pack is large enough to al­low the car to travel more than 185 miles be­tween charges – which should be enough range for reg­u­lar ur­ban use.
