The three-seat electric concept shows Toyota’s vision for urban mobility

The Toyota i-TRIL electric city car concept will make its world debut at this year’s Geneva motor show, showcasing the manufacturer’s vision of urban mobility in 2030.

It has a one-plus-two seating arrangement and Toyota says it features ‘Active Lean’ technology that is similar to the Toyota i-ROAD concept shown in Geneva in 2013.

The i-TRIL may also get a limited top speed similar to the i-ROAD of around 30mph.

Toyota says it has been developed as a “viable alternative” to city cars and small hatchbacks for people who “still want to have fun when driving, even at slower, urban traffic speeds”.

The car has been developed by Toyota Motor Europe with the company’s design centre in Nice. 

The Japanese manufacturer will also be displaying the new Yaris, along with a hot version of it, at the Geneva motor show.

Our Verdict

Toyota Auris

The new Toyota Auris is super-rational and a good ownership proposition, but it lacks character and dynamics of the best in class

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
