Toyota will unveil the production version of the 2009 iQ at the Paris Auto Show. Measuring less than 10 feet in length, the iQ is not just the world’s smallest 4-seater ever built, but it is also a serious green machine with CO2 emissions levels starting at a mere 99 g/km.
But this is only the beginning. Starting 2010, it will also gain the title of the world’s smallest hybrid. Inspired by the next generation Prius , the hybrid iQ will be powered by a 500cc engine and a small electric motor. That means drivers will have the option to plug in to an electricity supply to extend the car’s range.
