Much like the latest models in the industry to date, the Toyota i-TRIL Concept also made its international debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show yesterday. The concept was showcased through small electric vehicles set on display during the show. What are its distinct specifications?
The car with the Toyota i-TRIL Concept was developed by Toyota Motors Europe in Nice, France. It labeled as the perfect vehicle for older people in the year 2030 wherein they could multitask with watching their kids into small and/or medium-sized suburban towns expected to be prevalent in Europe. Due to the vehicle's petite size, the older consumers and busy parents could maneuver their tasks easily and park the vehicle easily during stop-and-go moments, reported Auto Blog. In fact, the car only weighs 1,300 pounds, is 9 ft. long, and has a hinge between the rear axle and passenger cabin. Therefore, it has improved the driving experience and accommodation functions.
Moreover, Auto Express reported that the design itself was inspired by the idea of urban mobility which was considered as an inevitable future of the generation. The car is a three-seater with a one-plus-two layout, installed with the brand's Active Lean technology, considered as an i-ROAD show car, and was designed to replace hatchbacks, city cars, and even motorcycles in the future. On top of which, the doors of the car would open up nicely within regular parking spaces. When such doors open, the driver can easily stretch his legs since the door would remove a portion of the floor.
Although the brand failed to specify what the Toyota i-TRAIL Concept will offer consumers with respect to its performance figures, the spokesperson did reveal that it would be an autonomous car. It will be powered by a large battery pack which allows 185 miles in between charges, a decent mileage record for an electric vehicle.
