Tokyo: Toyota to showcase ultra-compact 2-seater EV


Toyota is planning to showcase an ultra-compact two-seater electric vehicle at the Future Expo special exhibition of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.

Toyota claims that the car has been designed for those who use their cars regularly for short distance trips. The car has a claimed range of around 100 km and a top speed of 60 km/h. The carmaker also claims that the car has an extremely short turning radius.

The car has 2 doors, 5-pod LED headlamps, ORVMs with turn-indicators and vertically stacked tail lamp clusters. Images released by the company suggest that the car rides on steel wheels and gets a digital instrument cluster. The car's charging port is located at the front, between the headlamp clusters.

Toyota is also looking to re-use batteries in used cars as well as in non-automobile applications.
