Toyota has taken the wraps off the i-Road and FV2 concepts today at Tokyo Motor Show.

The i-Road is a rather peculiar three-wheeler boasting "motorcycle-like maneuverability" in a tandem two-seater compact EV. It's powered by two 2 kW electric motors mounted in the front wheels that draw power from a lithium-ion battery pack. It can reach a top speed of 28 mph (45 km/h) and provides a maximum range of around 30 miles (48.2 km) once you wait three hours for the batteries to be recharged from a regular household outlet.

Toyota mentions the i-Road weighs less than 300 kg (661 lbs) in a body measuring 2350mm long, 1445mm tall, with a 1700mm wheelbase. It rides on 16-inch front alloys shod in 80/80 tires and on a 10-inch rear wheel with a 130/170 R10 tire. The concept also benefits from an Active Lean system which automatically controls the body angle to ensure a more stable ride.

As for the FV2 concept, this is a one-seater part of the firm's "Fun to Drive" philosophy which also sits only on three wheels. You won't find a regular steering wheel since the driver maneuvers the vehicle by shifting his body "to intuitively move the vehicle forward and back, left and right."

The Toyota FV2 concept is 3000mm long, 1600mm wide and has a 2360mm wheelbase. In "sleep mode" is 990mm tall while in driving mode the one-seater has a 1780mm height.
