Japan Tests Toyota Coms EV in Local Postal Delivery
A quartet of single-seat Coms electric vehicles, developed by Toyota's Auto Body Company unit, have been deployed as part of a postal delivery trial in central Japan. Capable of speeds up to 60 km/h (37 mph) and an operating range per charge of up to 50 km (31 miles), it's narrow body (1.1m) and short chassis length (2.5m) make it ideal for small package service in congested urban areas. Recharge time is said to be six hours. It can carry up to 60 kg or 132 lbs.
The trial apparently will last until March of 2016, as which point the program will be evaluated and a decision made as to whether or not to deploy more Coms type vehicles in similar applications.
