Toyota to reveal i-TRIL Electric Concept at Geneva Motorshow

Featuring a one-plus-two seating layout, Active Lean technology and capable of operating autonomously the i-TRIL Concept will be revealed at forthcoming Geneva International Motor Show (March 7th-19th).

Toyota suggested the concept represents a viable alternative to A and B segment cars, other EV products, and motorcycles for those who still wish to have fun whilst driving even at slow speeds in the urban environments.

Developed by Toyota‘s European division in collaboration with the company’s ED² design studio in Nice, this electric motor powered concept showcases numerous innovative aspects of Toyota‘s research into ever better and more engaging environmentally-friendly mobility.

Toyota have until recently shied away from pure electric vehicles, preferring to further develop hybrid technology in the groundbreaking Pruis and the newly launched Prius Plug-in.

Further evidence of the Japanese brands reticence towards EVs is the development of Fuel Cell technology in the Mirai. The arrival of the i-TRIL signals a much needed change in direction.
