2013 iQ EV Overview

So you want an electric that can claim the world’s power consumption rate as as the lowest 5-year cost to Well, there’s good and bad. The good news is, a vehicle exists.

The bad news is, probably never even see

That’s because Toyota—which Scion cars—has decided the iQ EV palatable to a large enough of the public. Because of reasoning that, only 100 iQ EVs will be with only 90 of those to the U.S. direct to fleet and programs around the country.

If you happen to find yourself the rare opportunity to drive you won’t be disappointed, and that has to do with the ownership perks above. No, the iQ EV is a capable little from a purely practical despite what the numbers lead you to believe.

After 63 hp hasn’t impressed anybody in a even when backed up by 120 of torque. Same for a 78-mph top and a 50-mile range (admittedly in conditions). Numbers like seem like we’re backward.

But this is a new world, and a new measuring is being employed.

Perhaps should’ve looked at it, though. the general impression is that an EV a 50-mile range couldn’t serve the needs of your commuter, but the facts spell a story. A DOT survey from found that 98 percent of all journeys by car were under 50 percent under 30. You might that’s cutting it close, but the trip was just 5.95

Even for rural respondents, 95 of trips fell under 50

Of course, the iQ EV will never to prove itself on rural relegated to the world of college and city fleets. It’s that its 12kWh lithium-ion will provide the world-class consumption rate of 104 Wh/km or 121 you should probably start for the future. And when it comes to refuel… eh… recharge… the iQ EV does it in 3 hours at a dedicated 240-volt something the fleet centers and stations in major cities

At a regular 110-volt wall plan 10 hours for a full

How much you’ll need to depends on how you drive. The iQ EV has three S D—intended to emphasize braking acceleration and energy consumption, These systems have all harvested from knowledge and gained during Toyota’s decade producing the Scion, so no there, and additional energy-saving were taken to supplement, heat-pump air and LED lights.

Of course, you also get a 7-inch HDD navigation and heated front so we’ll see how the trade-off works.

the likelihood that most of us never see one, the iQ EV represents obstacle climbed on the alternative-fuel With only 100 on the road, still another step electric acceptability in the states. wait until you see the next of EVs.

If you manage to decipher those they just might
