Upon arrival in Argentina, there is still no news. In the first place, its arrival seems remote, since this segment does not have many followers at the local level, although the few that remain without exponent: Smart, the only brand that sold models of this size, pulled its retailers from the country for the low sales volumes

The "Mini" car from Toyota is 2.49 meters long, 1.29 wide and 1.55 high. It has room for two people, although there will be an "extended" version for professional use such as passenger transport.

The motor is 100 percent electric and the battery can be charged for five hours in a household outlet. Toyota says its autonomy in the city will be about 100 kilometers and that it reaches a maximum speed of 60 km / h.
