Toyota's carmaking arm has called on the expertise of the multi-talented Yamaha more than a few times in the past. Next week, we'll see a new facet to that relationship when the duo shows off a pair of bike and trike concepts in Tokyo.

The EC-Miu is an electric commuter tricycle, while the PAS-WITH enters as an electric power-assisted bicycle.

Toyota says the ultimate goal behind the two concepts is to develop a charging infastructure that all electric vehicles can share, from passenger cars to personal mobility systems.

The project is also working to create a universal navigation and telematics system based around mobile devices and wireless internet, which can be used with in-dash systems or a regular smartphone.

The two companies plan to start tests of both technologies in the near future, with an eye to a commercial introduction over the coming years.
