Ideal for narrow streets, crowded cities and described as an efficient urban means of transportation, the almost production-ready i-Road shows what it's capable of in Toyota's latest video.

The set up chosen by the Japanese automaker seems to perfectly suit this little two-seater three-wheeled car, whose special Superman-like power is being able to lean at about 45 degrees while cornering, thanks to the "Active Lean" system.

"Requiring no specialised driving skills to operate, the Active Lean system offers a unique driving experience with all the enjoyment of two-wheeler riding and without the need for the driver to stabilise the vehicle himself during slow speed manoeuvres, or when stationary," Toyota explains.

The i-Road Concept provides a driving range of up to 31 miles (50 km) and could rival Renault's Twizy as soon as it enters a production facility.
