Takeoka Jidosha Kogei Ltd exhibited a prototype of their upgraded electric minicar at the Interational Automotive Electronics Technology Expo in Tokyo Japan last week. The minicar, currently named T10, is expected to be available in Japan sometime in 2009 and will be priced above $9,520, the cost of their current model in the market, the Milieu R.
The T10 is slightly longer, wider and higher than the Milieu R and is powered by four 12 volt batteries. The top speed is 55 km/h and the range is 50 km/hr. Curtis Instruments provides the controller for the vehicle. Learn more
