According to Bill Reinert, national alternative-fuel vehicle manager for Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., Toyota is hoping that the small urban run-about will have a range of 50 miles on a full charge of its lithium-ion batteries, and will take between two to six hours to charge, depending on whether 110-volt or 220-volt outlet is used. Whether the vehicle will be sold or leased nationally or regionally has not yet been determined, and neither have projected import volume or price points.
