Looks like they crammed HSD into the iQ. Probably with plug-in capacity.
Too little front overhang? Maybe it can borrow some from the production Volt, which seems to have plenty to spare.
It's the new Toy Yoda Insight. 1800 pounds, 1.0 liter 3 cyl, 5 spd std shift. With the electric motor you're looking at way more torque (~100 ft-lb) than HP (~70). 70mpg at 70 mph. on paper it looks pretty good huh?
I think this is the vehicle - or it's at least related: http://www.toyota.com/concept-vehicles/hybridx.html
