Called the i-TRIL, it gives a glimpse of what Toyota imagines is the future of individual urban mobility. Able to carry three – a driver up front with two passengers behind on either flank just like a McLaren F1 – the idea behind the vehicle is to maximise cabin space while minimising external footprint so that it can manoeuvre more swiftly along congested roads.
As for range, Toyota is yet to confirm how big the battery pack will be, however, it has confirmed that the i-TRIL will have a trick suspension setup that will enable it to lean into corners and around bends just like a motorbike.
However, the idea is to make driving fun, even at lower speeds and let the driver carry more speed into a corner without having to brake, thus extending the car's range.
The 2017 International Geneva Motor Show officially opens to the public on March 9.
