Toyota Scion iQ Electric Car Coming in 2012 [PICS]
Toyota’s been teasing us with its Scion iQ electric car for more than a year. Now the company has officially announced the iQ will be sold in the United States in 2012.
If you’re looking for a cute car, this micro-subcompact fits the bill nicely. But if you have a long commute, you might want to wait until battery technology improves. Toyota says the Scion iQ can only go 50 miles on a charge. That means this car will be hard-pressed to compete against the similar Nissan Leaf, whose battery can propel it about twice as far until it needs charging. As you’ll notice in our gallery below, the iQ is scarcely larger than a golf cart.
