Toyota has announced the introduction of the i-Road

 

Toyota has announced the introduction of the i-Road personal mobility concept to the “Ha:mo” urban transport system trials. The concept, which made its world debut at 2012 Geneva motor show, will be used alongside existing Toyota COMS personal mobility vehicles from early 2014.

Toyota i-Road

“Ha:mo” is an urban transport system designed to combine all forms of public and private transport with the aim of improving traffic flow and minimising emissions. The system uses electric vehicle car sharing and traffic routing information to ensure the most appropriate form of transportation is used by travellers.

Toyota i-Road

The introduction of Toyota’s i-Road concept is just one action in the expansion of the “Ha:mo” system:

1. Increase in size of electric vehicle fleet

Number of COMS electric vehicles increased from 10 to 100 in October. All COMS vehicles will be fitted with keyless operation.

Number of Yamaha PAS power-assisted bicycles increased from 10 to 100 in October.

The new “Ha:mo” application will have a range of features including:

Suggestion of new route options based upon traffic flow and local vehicle station stocking levels

Reservation of vehicles

Access to local bus timetables

‘Push’ notifications of predicted traffic congestion and weekly traffic congestion forecasts that encourage the use of different roads and transportation methods

3. Increase in number of vehicle stations

The second generation of the Nissan Qashqai

The second generation of the Nissan Qashqai has made a comeback in a fresh batch of spy shots ahead of a rumored November reveal.

 

Looking more premium than the outgoing model, the all-new Qashqai will take several design cues from the Hi-Cross concept showcased back in 2012 during the Geneva Motor Show. Chances are the Qashqai+2 won’t make it for the second-gen model as the role of a seven-seater has already been attributed to the 2014 X-Trail introduced earlier this month at IAA.

 

 Next-gen Nissan Qashqai returns in fresh spy photos

 

Front-wheel drive will be standard on the new Qashqai, but those willing to pay more will be able to opt for an all-wheel drive setup. The vehicle is expected to ride on the Common Module Family (CMF) co-developed with Nissan which underpins the aforementioned 2014 X-Trail. Engine lineup has not been revealed at this moment but it will reportedly include a 1.2-liter turbocharged motor outputting 113 bhp (84 kW) and a peak torque of 190 Nm (140 lb-ft). There should also be a 1.6-liter diesel, while in 2015 the Qashqai will receive a plug-in hybrid derivative.

 

The second-gen Nissan Qashqai is scheduled to reach dealerships early 2014 and should have just about the same prices as the outgoing model.
