Toyota to Add 2nd iQ to U.S. Market

The Detroit Bureau - October 17, 2012

Toy­ota plans to add a sec­ond bat­tery-elec­tric vehi­cle to its U.S. line-up, a lithi­um-ion-pow­ered ver­sion of its Scion iQ, but with reser­va­tions and over­rid­ing lim­i­ta­tions.

Find out what Toy­ota has in mind.

…plans for the new green machine under­score the Japan­ese giant’s con­tin­ued skep­ti­cism about the near to mid-term poten­tial of bat­tery-elec­tric propul­sion.

As with the Toy­ota RAV4-EV intro­duced ear­li­er this year, the Scion iQ will be pro­duced in rel­a­tive­ly low num­bers – and it will be tar­get­ed at cam­pus and urban car-shar­ing pro­grams rather than being sold direct­ly to con­sumers, the mak­er reveals.
