Scion iQ EV
The Scion iQ is a cheap, mini-subcompact with 4-seats, and its mind-boggling to imagine how they would squeeze some batteries in there. But sources indicate that an iQ EV is on its way, and will be on the roads by the end of the year.
However, it seems like the iQ EV will be limited, explicitly only available to fleet services. Word from Scion is that the iQ EV will be primarily used in car-sharing fleet, like Zipcar.
While Toyota is working with American electric car company Tesla Motors to build its RAV4 EV, the iQ is expected to be an internal project using Toyota’s own batter technology.
The iQ EV will also be available in Europe, and is expected to have a 65 mile range.
