Geneva motor show is just around the corner and as the brands you know are already warming up the room before you open your doors. The firm has surprised us with this teaser is the japanese Toyota and as explained we are facing a new concept that foreshadows how it will be the mobility of the future. If we look back (it does not take much time) we will remember when the firm presented us with the i-Road concept.
This small urban electric has come to carry out tests in some French cities in order to assess its viability as an alternative means of transportation. However Toyota don’t want to stay on the sidelines and keep researching for which can to launch the first vehicle to be one hundred percent urban and electrical that meets with the wishes of the drivers urbanites are more demanding.
Toyota i-TRIL concept is an exercise of style that foreshadows how they will be urban vehicles that you will see in the (now distant) year 2030. As we have said before, the i-Road set a precedent in the firm and the i-TRIL will be an evolution of this. Your passenger compartment will have capacity for three occupants and has been entirely developed by the French subsidiary of the japanese brand. As a curiosity it is worth mentioning that the new model uses the same system as an “Active Lean” that already premiere the i-Road.
With this technology the i-TRIL will be able to, as was also the i-Road, to control the stability of the vehicle automatically. With it, the inclination of the body is controlled by a gyroscopic sensor, enabling the driver never lost control of the vehicle, regardless of the place on which he is circulating. For now we don’t have more details of the model, nor its final design or how it will be its electric motor.
Will have to wait for the Geneva motor show opens its doors on the 7th of march. Imagine that the firm will make public before the event, some photos of its interior, or some features on its approach mechanical.
