Trophée Andros Electrique, Toyota iRoad, HOV lanes, Events.

Reading tip I: It took Chris Davies some time to get used to the Toyota iRoad’s “tilting sensation” but he soon got the hang of it and happily cruised along while also finding some time to talk to Makoto Morita, leader of the iRoad project.
