... Toyota has unveiled the production-bound all-electric version of its pint-sized iQ. Scheduled to debut in Paris later this week, the iQ EV is aimed squarely at the smart fortwo electric drive.

The electric version of the iQ is five inches longer and 275 pounds heavier than its gasoline-powered counterpart. The two cars boast the same amount of passenger and cargo space thanks to the former's totally flat underbody.

The iQ EV is powered by a 47-kilowatt air-cooled electric motor that is linked to a downsized lithium-ion battery pack with a maximum range of 52 miles. The drivetrain sends 120 lb-ft. of instant torque to the front wheels, propelling the EV from zero to 62 mph in 14 seconds flat and on to a top speed of 77 mph...


What was that about Toyota abandoning electric cars???
