Toyota has long said that its Scion iQ EV was destined for carsharing duty, and now we know a bit more about just how this quirky electric car is going to be split among its non-owners. City Carshare, in Pleasanton, CA, has formed Dash, a three-year pilot carsharing program that will make 30 iQ EVs (out of the 100 that exist in the world) available to users for short loans.
A few short weeks ago we learned that Toyota is shrinking its overall plan for the Scion iQ EV down to an "extremely limited release." During its Future Mobility Seminar in Denver, CO this week, Toyota announced the small details for its diminutive electric vehicle (EV) program.
Back in July, Toyota officially confirmed that the electric Scion iQ will hit U.S. dealerships in 2012. A few weeks later, the Japanese automaker revealed that the electrified Scion iQ will be a fleet-only vehicle.
