The i-ROAD seats two passengers in tandem to keep the body as narrow as possible; it measures just 33.5 inches wide, 56.9 inches high, and 92.5 inches long. Toyota claims that the i-ROAD is no wider than a two-wheeler. The skinny concept is offering customers a tight, motorcycle-like conventionally powered three-wheeler.

According to the Huffington Post, this three-wheeled electric vehicle takes a cue from motorcycles by leaning its operator into turns. The Toyota i-Road is powered by two electric motors and is reportedly able to reach a top speed of about 37 mph. The Toyota i-Road also boasts that the vehicle automatically leans itself sharply into turns.


It was first introduced at last year’s Geneva Auto Show, and Toyota announced later in 2013 that it would be putting the i-Road into car-sharing trials in Japan and France. Vice president of marketing at Toyota Motor Sales USA, Jack Hollis, said that “We need to bring something like [the i-Road] into the U.S.,” according to Autoweek in 2013.

According to the New York Daily News, the i-ROAD electric vehicle is set to be tested on the streets of Tokyo by a group of about 20 drivers.

The futuristic Toyota i-Road beams the versatility of a motorcycle with the comfort and protection of a car, and is also aimed at eco-conscious consumers thanks to its emissions-free power train that combines two electric motors and a lithium-ion battery.
