Toyota's i-Road EV concept gets green light, enters production

•, Colin Druce-McFadden
Earlier this year, Toyota showed up at the Geneva Auto Show with a three-wheeled escape pod of an electric vehicle called the i-Road. At the time Toyota declared the diminutive vehicle production-ready. This statement didn't exactly inspire an overwhelming wave of assurance that we would ever see the i-Road on the, uh, road anytime soon. After all, not many "production-ready" concept cars ever actually see the light of day. As it turns out, in the case of the i-Road that skepticism was misplaced.

Toyota has already begun producing the slick little trikes. Very soon, a handful of lucky drivers will be slaloming through turns in these jet-fighter inspired EVs. They'll have to keep those turns local however, as the i-Road is still a pretty short-range vehicle.
