Spotted on the freeway… A Scion iQ EV with Michigan manufacturer plates.

And now a pause from our Active E, Model S, and Roadster coverage…

Heading home on the 405 Freeway one fine Sunday afternoon, several weeks ago, I spotted an interesting looking Scion iQ.

Lo and behold, the Scion iQ EV.




Unfortunately, he went behind a really slow vehicle to hide from me, so the ONLY front view I have uses my rearview mirror.


It’s always a thrill to catch an unreleased EV in the wild. Definitely one of the benefits of living in Southern California
