Toyota has announced plans to introduce the iQ electric vehicle prototype at the Geneva Motor Show.

Essentially a near-production version of the FT-EV concept, the iQ features a newly-developed flat lithium-ion battery that enables the car to travel approximately 105 kilometers (65 miles) on a single charge. The company will begin testing the vehicle later this year, before leasing it to European consumers in 2012.

The car will debut alongside the Yaris Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) concept, the FT-86 II concept, and the new seven-seat Prius+.
