Toyota has unveiled a new three-wheeled i-ROAD city concept EV at the Geneva Motor Show this week.

Billed as a Personal Mobility Vehicle (PMV), the i-ROAD features a tandem two seat configuration similar to Renault’s Twizzy EV production model.

Unlike the Twizzy however, the i-ROAD places two wheels at the front and a single wheel at the rear, and the ability to lean into corners like a motorcycle.

The i-ROAD uses a conventional steering wheel, but an “Active Lean” system uses a gyro-sensor to tip the top-heavy body into corners to aid cornering stability.

Measuring just 2350mm long and 850mm wide, Toyota claims similar manoeuvrability to a motorcycle, and a turning circle of just three metres.

Unlike a motorcycle, the i-ROAD offers the safety, comfort and weather proofness of an enclosed cabin, and is intended for use with a standard driving license.

The i-ROAD is powered by a 2kW motor in each front wheel, and offers a range of up to 50km and its lithium-ion battery cell can be recharged from a standard power outlet within three hours.
