It happens to be an ‘Ultra Compact’ electric vehicle with a seating capacity for 2 adults.
The Toyota C+Pod measures just 2,490 mm in length, 1,550 mm in height, and 1,290 mm in width.
The C+Pod has been launched in 2 variants, X and G. The X trim is priced at 1.65 million Japanese yen ($15,950).
TOKYO, Japan – It happens to be an ‘Ultra Compact’ electric vehicle with a seating capacity for 2 adults. To begin with, sales will be restricted to local government bodies, corporate users, and other organizations which are planning to include electric vehicles in their fleets. A full-scale launch for the masses is scheduled to take place in 2022.

Specifications

The Toyota C+Pod measures just 2,490 mm in length, 1,550 mm in height, and 1,290 mm in width. Thanks to its compact dimensions, it has a turning radius of just 3.9 meters making it a perfect choice for heavily packed cities like Tokyo.

It derives power from a 9.06 kWh lithium-ion battery which has been mounted under the floor. The battery powers an electric motor that has been installed on the rear axle and delivers a total output of 12 hp and 56 Nm of peak torque.

As per Toyota’s claims, the C+Pod has a range of 150 km (as per WLTC Class 1 mode testing conditions) and can be charged to its full capacity in 5 hours on a 200V/16A power supply. On the standard 100V/6A power supply, the charging time goes up to 16 hours.

Pricing and Trims

The C+Pod has been launched in 2 variants, X and G. The X trim is priced at 1.65 million Japanese yen ($15,950) while the G trim is priced at 1.71 million yen ($16,500). The X trim weighs 670 kg while the G trim lands up weighing 690 kgs. The light weight of the vehicle can be attributed to the exterior panels which have been made out of plastic.

Toyota has designed the structure of C+Pod in such a way that it absorbs impact and offers pedestrian protection too. The pre-collision system which has been installed on the C+Pod ensures that the chances of a collision with other cyclists, pedestrians, vehicles are lowered to the maximum extent possible.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has designated the airspace around the area of Friday’s bombing in downtown Nashville as a ‘national defense airspace,’ threatening ‘deadly force’ to any aircraft that poses as a possible security threat.

The FAA issued an alert on Friday night stating that an area of one nautical mile would be zoned off, along 2nd Avenue street where the explosion took place.

‘Pilots who do not adhere to the following procedures may be intercepted, detained and interviewed by law enforcement/security personnel,’ the alert reads.
