Toyota thinks the most useful vehicle for city traveling is a three-wheeled electric leaning two-seater. That along with an interconnected traffic infrastructure and lots of charging points will definitely clear the skies over polluted cities.
For those who are new to the subject, this concept has a name - the Toyota i-Road. It has two seats, a square steering wheel, looks like a tall Can-Am Spyder and it can lean into bends.

Unlike the Can-Am, the i-Road’s front wheels can’t turn left or right. That’s the job for the rear wheel. Instead they can go up and down to allow the vehicle to lean and feel almost like a bike.

In Toyota’s vision, these things will be placed around any battery charging points and could be rented by anyone with a driving license. A special phone app will inform you about the nearest available i-Road and you will be able to reserve it prior to your arrival at the charging point.

Then you will just have to swipe a personalized card over a special reader, disconnect the charging cord and go where you need to. Check the video bellow for more.
