[ad#Google Adsense]I recent comment on an old post, regarding the Toyota IQ Car, brought my attention back to this little beasty. The comment mentioned that this was not intended to actually be a hybrid, rather a small gasoline engine or diesel. After some further research, it looks like Toyota does plan on making a very small motorcycle engine, to power this pimple on wheels.
The Toyota IQ was originally announced and shown at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show. Midgets and kids shrieked in excitement at the possibility of finally getting to drive a go-kart on the highways and biways. However, it looks like the IQ will be focused on European markets, where traffic studies show the average speed is in the teens. So, a tiny motor cycle engine will be sufficient to push the little tin can down the road.
