Toyota to reveal i-TRIL EV concept at Geneva

Toyota will unveil a new electric mobility concept at the Geneva Motor Show next month, designed to be a viable alternative to citycars, small hatchbacks, and motorcycles.

Using ideas already developed for the i-ROAD concept, including active lean technology, the i-TRIL shows that Toyota is serious about developing electric cars for urban environments.

The i-TRIL will feature an innovative one-plus-two seating layout, and will have an emphasis on fun driving capabilities, even in slow city traffic.

Only the below teaser photo has been released currently, though if you imagine something across between the i-ROAD (above left) and Twizy (above right)- though a little wider than the little Renault - you are expected to be on the right sort of lines.

Further details will be announced at the Geneva Motor Show, where Toyota will also be unveiling an updated Yaris, and a performance version of the same model using the company's new World Rally Car as inspiration.
