Toyota iQ review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/toyota/iq/micro-car/review
It's not big but it is quite clever. Toyota's iQ city car is just three metres long but it can carry two adults and two small children - and is very well equipped. It's at its best around towns, where its compact size makes it easy to park.Running costs are low but if you intend to rely on the iQ as your only car, think carefully about the kind of trips you make. For example, you do have to choose between passenger space or luggage space -- you can't have both.
2012 smart fortwo electric drive Production plant Hambach
smart fortwo electric drive - Zero-emission driving pleasure for everyone: the new smart fortwo electric drive will soon be available worldwide.
Zero-emission motoring with even more driving fun -- the third generation smart fortwo electric drive will be available from the spring of 2012. In total a five-figure number of vehicles will roll off the production line in Hambach, France. Following the huge success of the second generation, electric mobility will then become accessible to anyone interested in more than 30 markets worldwide. In the development of the new generation smart benefited from extensive experience and customer feedback gathered worldwide over the past years. Driven by a battery supplied by Deutsche Accumotive for the first time the 55 kW electric motor passes the 120 km/h mark. From 0 to 100 km/h in less than 13 seconds - even driving on urban motorways becomes enjoyable. The 17.6 kWh battery enables the lively city car to travel around 140 kilometres in city traffic without producing any local emissions.
"The smart fortwo has exceeded itself. It has always been a pioneer of urban mobility and with the new electric drive it is once again setting standards with even more driving fun and environmental compatibility," says Dr. Annette Winkler, Head of smart. "With the new generation the frequently cited "electric era" has finally arrived." For the further development of the smart fortwo electric drive the company was able to bring in extensive experience and customer feedback from various electric mobility projects. For example, this is reflected in clearly improved performance data. Driven for the first time by energy from a battery supplied by Deutsche Accumotive the 55 kW electric motor effortlessly passes the 120 km/h mark. The smart developers were also able to realise the more powerful acceleration requested by customers. From 0 to 100 km/h in less than 13 seconds - even filtering into traffic on urban motorways is a pleasure. The 17.6 kWh battery enables the lively city car to travel considerably more than 140 kilometres without producing any local emissions.
Ever since 1998 the smart has been revolutionising urban mobility like no vehicle before it. Compact, agile, environmentally friendly and stylish -- it has evolved from a practical small car to a lifestyle product and has long become a familiar sight on the roads of cities around the world.
With the start of the first electrically driven test fleet in 2007 in London smart also took on a pioneering role in the area of electric mobility when 100 smart fortwo electric drives took to the roads of the British capital -- with great success. Today the vehicle is a trendsetter and a synonym for forward-looking battery-electric-driven urban mobility of the future.
One of the largest electric fleets worldwide
With the introduction of the second generation in 2009 the smart fortwo electric drive was ready to take to the roads. The electrically driven avant-gardiste from Stuttgart was introduced in 18 markets. The objective of the second generation was to gather as much experience as possible about how customers use and charge electric vehicles. The huge demand exceeded all expectations. Instead of the planned 1000 vehicles more than 2000 smart fortwo electric drives are being produced in Hambach. This means that smart has one of the largest fleets of electrically driven vehicles on the roads worldwide and a trove of customer experience and wishes that have been input in the third generation smart fortwo electric drive.

Who needs petrol stations when you have one of these? A full charge will give you up to an 85 mile range for as little as 50 pence, here in the UK. Charging is simple and can be done from a normal domestic mains socket. It has a top speed of almost 70mph and, as with a standard Smart Car, it exceeds crash test requirements. It's a baby Merc after all
This car is under trial at the moment, but when the production cars become available soon, that 85 mile range is expected to be increased even further.

Smart fortwo owners can park where other drivers wouldn't even consider, and its running costs and emissions are very low.
The ride is too firm, it's noisy and poor to drive. Entry-level Pulse models are short of some desirable
