That link doesn't work for me, but this one seems ok:­

A little confusing info at the end of the article:

"The Smart Insect is just a concept for now, but the regular Coms gives us an idea of its capabilities. Priced at approximately US$10,000, it can achieve a top speed of 37.5 mph (60 km/h) and has a range of about 31 miles (50 km). Toyota says it's sold around a thousand of them so far, but it seems we'll have to wait until a breakthrough in battery technology before vehicles like this become practical outside of Japan's dense urban centers."

How can they have sold a thousand of them if they're just a concept?

Ah, the Toyota Coms is for sale now, the Toyota INSECT is the concept.
