Toyota i-swing


With its body-hugging shape, i-swing feels like something you’d wear rather than drive. When this vehicle, which was first introduced at the 2005 Tokyo Auto Show, shifts its shape, it’s not showing off: It’s being considerate. The upright two-wheeled mode takes up less space on a people-filled sidewalk, and allows you to glide at a comfortable pace that matches your conversation partner. When you need extra speed, the sleek three-wheeled mode functions easily on the road. But the i-swing is more than just thoughtful; it’s also smart. On-board AI helps it learn your habits and preferences so that it becomes an extension of your style and personality — in effect, it grows with you as you move through life.
