Toyota i-ROAD Concept
Today, Toyota unveiled its i-ROAD Concept at the 83rd Geneva Auto Show. Certainly looking like something ahead of its time, the three-wheeled electric vehicle known as the Personal Mobility Vehicle (PMV) promises to draw on the maneuverability of a motorbike thanks to its “Active Lean” technology which uses a gyro-sensor to automatically balance the vehicle based on its steering angle and speed.
Powered by two 2kW motors, the emission-free PMV can be driven for about 30 miles and recharges in about three hours. Despite its size being about 92 inches long and 56 inches high, the i-ROAD manages to incorporate the protection of an automobile with a closed body that includes interior lighting, heating, sound system and Bluetooth connectivity.
