Toyota Sees 3-Wheeled Electric Vehicle In Bay Area’s Future

Published Saturday March 4

SONOMA — It’s a cross between a car and a motorcycle. And a definite head turner.

It’s an i-Road -three-wheeled, all-electric and Toyota’s vision for the future in a packed urban city.

There are about one hundred prototypes in the world, and some are already on the road as part of car share programs in Tokyo, Japan, Japan and France.

“This is a perfect car for getting around town.”

I took the car for a spin at the Sonoma Racetrack, where the Toyota Research Institute put its latest high-tech innovations on display.

The i-Road has a 30-mile range and can go up to 37 miles per hour. Sitting behind the wheel feels like being in a little capsule flying through space.
