Toyota i-Unit Concept Debuts at New York Auto Show

2005 Toyota i-Unit Concept
March 23, 2005 - New York, NY - Toyota's i-unit concept will make its Ú.S. debut at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. The single passenger i-unit is a form of 'personal mobility' that seeks to balance freedom of movement, harmony with society, and harmony with the Earth's natural environment. Its design was inspired by a leaf and expresses the power of the unknown, the logic of living things and the simple beauty of waste-free functionality.

The i-unit creates a seamless transformation between the vehicle and human movement, minimizing occupied space and energy consumption with its lightweight and ultra compact size. Its components are made with decomposable and recyclable materials to reduce impact on the environment.

The concept operates in an upright and horizontal mode. Its small size enables the driver to move among people in an upright position in low speed mode. The i-unit reclines in high-speed mode and its low center of gravity ensures stable handling.

Drive-by-wire technology and intuitive handling allow the driver to maneuver quick turns and drive at high speeds. In addition, a driver support information system uses sound, light and vibration to facilitate interactive communication.
The i-unit features Intelligent Transport System (ITS) technology that permits safe and efficient autopilot driving in specially equipped lanes.

Customization is also integral to the concept. A personalized recognition system can provide information and music to the driver, while the body color can be personalized according to the driver's preferences and emotions.

The concept vehicle will also be featured at the Toyota Group Pavilion at EXPO 2005 in Aichi, Japan. The Expo is scheduled to run from March 25 to September 25 of this year.
