iQ in Paris

The Paris Motor Show – Mondial de l’Automobile – runs from 4 to 19 October.

iQ is there.

The iQ project’s chief engineer, Hiroki Nakajima, took the opportunity to explain his thinking behind the design:

My theory was that the group of people most suited to this car’s style, small size and premium edge would be described as ‘post-modern’ – people who demonstrate independence in their choice of lifestyle and values.

No longer a concept, it’s the project’s first show appearance in production form.

The Truth About Cars says the iQ is smarter than the Smart.

It arrives in the UK in January 2009.
