At the upcoming Geneva Motor Show Toyota will roll out a new production ready version of its iQ minicar that will be much closer to the final model due next year than the original concept car from last year’s Frankfurt Show. The new iQ will serve as Toyota’s entry-level model and at present is only destined to be sold in Japan and Europe.

Toyota is claiming the latest iQ is production ready but the final version will feature some slight differences, namely under the bonnet. There’s been no official announcement for a future powertrain but reports coming out of Japan claim the car will be fitted with a three-cylinder 1.0L petrol engine and a diesel version may eventually be offered as well.

The new iQ will enter production at the end of the year and will be manufactured in Japan, starting with only 100,000 vehicles annually. The car measures just under 3m in length and has been designed to seat just three adult passengers and one small child.
