Scion iQ 2012 Electric Car
Toyota Motor Corporation announced the launch of electric Scion iQ, which goes on sale in 2012. It also became known that next year Toyota will release several new products. As for the Scion iQ, it's cute eco-friendly electric vehicle that is powered only by battery. Toyota 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.
