Toyota i-TRIL Concept Geneva 2017: two-wheelers keep their balance

Toyota shows its vision of an alternative to motorcycles or small cars with the i-TRIL Concept during the auto show. The two-wheeler with three seats in a 2 + 1 arrangement should travel up to 200 kilometers electrically and not tip over: A so-called 'Active Lean' technology stabilizes the vehicle when stationary and at low speeds. That reminds a little of the M oto Riding Assist , which Honda presented this year at the CES in Las Vegas. The vehicle tilts up to ten degrees in bends while the rear wheels maintain contact with the ground.

Controller instead of pedals and steering wheel

The driver enters through butterfly doors that swivel upwards. The driver sits in the front, the passengers behind. The control of the vehicle should be familiar to video players: Instead of pedals and steering wheel, a controller is used to accelerate and brake. There is a screen between the horns of the controller for the essential information.

The study was designed by the European Toyota design center ED2 in Nice.
