The biggest Automakers in the world will be gathering in Geneva in the next two weeks for the 87th Geneva International Motor Show. A few of these car companies have already announced that they will be bringing some new electric vehicle concepts with them to the trade show.

Toyota's EV Concept To Be Presented In Geneva

According to Electrek, Toyota on the other end has confirmed that it will premiere the "i-TRIL Concept", which is speculated to be a bigger and more advanced version of its i-road concept. As of now, the Japanese automaker has only released a teaser and a brief mention in their press release for the upcoming show:

"Developed by Toyota Motor Europe, in collaboration with the company's ED² design studio in Nice, this electric motor-powered concept showcases several innovative aspects of Toyota's research into ever better and more engaging environmentally-friendly mobility solutions for everyone's convenience."

Other Company's To Showcase EV Technology

As what has been already announced, Renault is the automaker that will unveil an EV in Geneva and people know nothing about it just yet. The car company has simply included a reference to an "EV surprise" in their very own press release for Geneva:

"Renault, Europe's number one EV brand, will take the wraps off an EV surprise in this year's Geneva Motor Show."

Doubts About Toyota's Concept

According to Inside EVs, while consumers don't have their hopes up in the case of Toyota since those "i" mobility concepts that they have been showing ever since have never made it to market, there is still hope that Renault's vehicle will ultimately be aimed at commercialization. Though the French automaker just had another EV concept last year, the all-electric GT concept Trezor, it doesn't look like it's anywhere close to production as of yet.
