Toyota-i-TRIL-300x150Toyota reveals brand new concept: The i-TRIL is an electric and autonomous city car. As was teased before, it features a one-plus-two seating layout as well as ‘Active Lean’ technology known from the i-Road, but the butterfly doors are news. The study also has self-driving technology, so much of it in fact, that it has no pedals. Control is applied through “drive-by-wire technology” instead, which is operated through devices similar to game controllers for the right and left hand. The electric drive sits in the rear and the i-Tril is said to have a range about 300 km. It is a little bigger than the Renault Twizy but different from its French competitor, that is very much alive, the i-Tril may hit the road from 2030 only.
