Toyota to show an all-electric city car at Tokyo
Toyota announced that it will display its new, production-ready Ultra-compact battery electric vehicle at the Future Expo special exhibition of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show ahead of the vehicle's planned commercial launch in Japan in 2020.
The ultra-compact, two-seater BEV is specifically designed to meet the daily mobility needs of customers who make regular, short-distance trips such as the elderly, newly licensed drivers, or business-people visiting local customers. It can be driven a range of approximately 100 km on a single charge, reach a maximum speed of 60 km/h, and features an extremely short turning radius to facilitate city maneuvers.
Toyota's Ultra-compact BEV will be exhibited along with the "Ultra-compact BEV Concept Model for Business", which takes the same formula as the two-seater city car, but with a different purpose: the MPV design offers an interior space similar to a mobile office configurable by changing the interior layout of the seats.
