Check out the Toyota C+Pod

Meet the Toyota C+Pod, the super-compact 2-seater EV that Toyota hopes to bring to the masses.

Toyota C+PodFor a price of about P800,000, this tiny 2-seater stands at 1,550 mm tall, 1,290 mm wide, and 2,490 mm long. And that means the C+Pod can comfortably navigate and maneuver in and out of Manila’s tight and congested roads.

Looking at the C+Pod you’ll notice that this tiny 2-seater comes with LED headlights, LED Taillights, a charging port in the grill of the car, and the use of plastic for the exterior panels to help reduce weight. But fear not even with the plastic body panels, Toyota made sure that the C+Pod comply with crash safety standards (frontal, rear, or side impacts).

You also get parking sensors that will also stop the car for you in case your about to hit a wall and other stationary obstacles during low-speed operation.
