The i-Real electric personal vehicle is controlled by two joysticks and was unveiled at the 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, London’s Daily Mail reported.

The show also highlighted a convertible, electric VW Beetle among the 84 vehicles on display and 2,000 companies from around the globe. Companies, including Toyota, also unveiled China-only models.

“We would like to put smiles on the faces of our Chinese customers with hybrid technology,” Toyota President Akio Toyoda said, according to the Mail. “I want the people of China to be able to experience the beauty of hybrid technology through a hybrid car born in China.”
