One day Toyota expects you all to be driving something like this, their new i-ROAD.
This tiny, single passenger, vehicle has hit the roads in Tokyo with 20 people beginning testing before Toyota decide on the project’s future.
Headline figures include a tiny width of just 870mm and two small electric motors powering (gently) the i-ROAD to a top speed of 37 mph.
Toyota say a two-seater version of the tiny motor will be heading to Grenoble next year.
