    The Toyota FT-EV concept confirms the automaker will have its own micro EV on sale by 2012. The FT-EV is based on Toyota's hip new iQ, a car not yet available in the U.S., but one we've enjoyed test driving in Europe. The FT-EV is designed for "an urban dweller," and the company claims it can run up to 50 miles on a charge.

    Very Interesting,but it is only a concept car.Toyota is an well known automotive industry and it can make it real.

    spacey accessories, plain steel wheels and LT-tires. Std size steering wheel [w/airbag], std

    Cool Car though, for in town quick zip rides.

    I feel like the Monkey who's trying to write Shakespeare's sonnets, I keep pinging on my computer and submitting comments, but they don't show up.
    Cool car though, good one for the short runs.

    It'd be the oddest thing to see these cars (SMART, Prius, electrics, etc.) in a race. But with exactly the same amount of gas/therms of fuel to see who got to an endpoint.
