The iQ s introduction has been muted as last month the company its plans for fully electric, hybrid, and regular hybrid

A plan that left the iQ on the looking in, as Toyota said would only be building and 100 of them for the United States, and all of for fleet.

If it is possible, the news got a little worse with s official release of details on the iQ this week, as the company

“Approximately 90 iQ EVs will be available for and car-sharing applications.  These will further expand comprehensive portfolio of advanced vehicles which includes the RAV4 EV, the Prius Family of hybrid vehicles, including the Plug-in Hybrid, and the FCHV-Adv Cell Hybrid Vehicle-Advanced).”

Why the small roll out?  cost to manufacturer the cars is Also, Toyota likely that if they go into production, and it receives the luke-warm everyone assumes it will, the EV at Toyota (and the iQ) be deemed a failure.

Pricing the car at about $45,000, however can not be attributed to the cost of the small relatively speaking) 12 kWh especially considering the plug-in gives Toyota the benefit of scale buying battery packs, and are so many cars with larger lithium batteries on board for much less.

It is clear that Toyota is attempting to some of the cost of research and on this car, while also that it is not received in a manner makes this car desirable the public to pressure them to put the mass production.

In reality, the iQ died the moment Daimler decided to put the SMART Electric Drive production.  The SMART ed has a 17.6 kWh up to 90 miles of range, and is on sale now in the US at $25,000 .
