Can someone tell me if there is some sort of unwritten rule in the car industry that says EVs have to be ugly? This isn't always the truth, the Tesla Roadster for instance is dead sexy and there is the new Porsche Boxster EV prototypes that look hot too. Then you get stuff like this new iQ electric car from Toyota chocked full of ugly.
I guess the group that goes for EVs in Japan likes odd styling too. Begin beat up with the ugly stick aside, the iQ EV has an all electric driving range of 105 kilometers, which works out to 65 miles for those of us in the States. That won't get you far, but if all you do is commute a few miles each day this car might do the trick.
The car is expected to hit the market in 2010, whether or not it will look like this or have the same specs remains to be seen. The car will hit Europe to start and then come to North America. Pricing is unknown.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
