Toyota i-Road

Toyota has unveiled its i-ROAD concept three-wheeler at this year’s Geneva Motor Show proving that the carmaker best known for making dependable cars, the gas-pedal dark period notwithstanding, that your mother might buy can also produce vehicles that are more interesting than they are practical.

The i-ROAD, if it ever makes it to production, will be perfect for the skinny-jeaned, skinny-legged urbanite who needs a motorized vehicle for little more than shopping for clove cigarettes and making Starbucks stops.  The Japanese automaker’s three-wheeler will fit this bill just fine. It carries two humans sitting in tandem and can go 30 miles on a single charge. According to Toyota, drivers do not need any special training to drive it due to the vehicle’s stability system that keeps the trike upright. Furthermore, being no wider than a normal motorcycle, it can be parked in all sorts of spaces.
