Toyota is set to unveil a new all-electric city car concept car called the i-TRIL at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
The i-TRIL was developed by Toyota Motor Europe in collaboration with the company’s ED2 design center in Nice, France.
The i-TRIL Concept showcases numerous innovative aspects of Toyota’s research into ever better and more engaging environmentally-friendly mobility solutions.
The picture doesn’t show much, but the i-TRIL points to what Toyota think we’ll be driving in just over a decade’s time.
Featuring a one-plus-two seating layout, Active Lean technology and capable of operating autonomously the i-TRIL Concept represents a viable alternative to A and B segment cars, other EV products, and motorcycles for those who still wish to have fun whilst driving even at slow speeds in the urban environment.
The Toyota i-TRIL will be on Toyota’s stand alongside the facelifted Yaris and hot Yaris GRMN.
The introduction of the new, significantly revised Yaris range is set to add further impetus to the success of Toyota’s small hatchback, thanks to a more dynamic exterior design and upgraded interior finish.
The Yaris range will also include a performance model in the form of the Yaris GRMN, inspired and influenced by Toyota’s return to the World Rally Championship in 2017 with the Yaris WRC. It will be unique in the hot hatch market in being powered by a supercharged engine – a 1.8-litre unit that will produce more than 210 DIN hp.
Last but not least, the Toyota stand will feature the full line-up of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing vehicles. By participating in highly demanding series such as the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and Dakar, Toyota pushes its cars to the limit, in the pursuit of making ever-better cars.
