The Toyota i-TRIL is powered by an electric motor and weighs about 1,300 pounds. It’s about 10 feet long and 5 feet high. The butterfly-opening doors are designed so that they can be opened within a regular parking space — no extra room is needed. The rear of the cabin is wider to accommodate a two-seat bench. When i-TRIL is operating in autonomous mode, the left or right side of the instrument panel will automatically light up when the vehicle is about to enter a corner, letting everyone on board know which way the cabin is about to lean.
