The Toyota Auto Body unveiled its ultra-compact electric vehicle (EV) Coms Connect at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.

The Coms Connect is a concept model equipped with a lithium ion battery and an in-wheel motor in its frame. Depending on the application and number of passengers, it is possible to change the specifications for three types of mode – delivery, personal, and tandem.
