The Geneva Auto Show is just around the corner and as brands already know they are heating the atmosphere until it opens its doors. The signs that us has surprised with this teaser is the Japanese Toyota and according to has explained are to a new concept that foreshadows how will be the mobility of the future. If we take a look back (no need long) remember when the firm introduced us to the i-Road concept.
This small urban electric has come to carry out tests on some French cities to assess their viability as a means of alternative transport. However in Toyota does not want to stand idle and are still investigating to that can throw the first one hundred per cent urban vehicle and electric to comply with the wishes of urbanites drivers demanding.
The Toyota i-TRIL concept is an exercise in style that foreshadows urban vehicles that we’ll see will be in 2030 (now far). As we have said above i-Road set a precedent in the firm, and the i-TRIL will be an evolution of this. Its cockpit will accommodate three occupants and has been entirely developed by the French subsidiary of the Japanese brand. As curiosity I must mention that the new model uses the same “Active Lean” system which already released the i-Road.
With this technology i-TRIL will be able, as it was i-Road, control the stability of the vehicle in an automatic way. With it the inclination of the body will be controlled by a gyro sensor, achieving that the driver never lose control of the vehicle, regardless of the place that is circulating. For now we have no more details of the model, nor its final design will be its electric motor.
You will have to wait at the Geneva Auto show opens its doors on March 7. We imagine that the firm will make public before the event some photos of inside or some features on its mechanical approach.
