Toyota agents in Malta are handing out a free Blackberry smartphone with every Toyota iQ they sell. Where is this Malta place we speak of? Malta is a small chain of seven islands situated in Southern Europe about 58 miles off the cost of Sicily, Italy. Yeah, we had no idea they existed and had no idea that the Toyota iQ would be selling there (and to think the U.S. won’t get the iQ for at least another 2 years).
Anyway, agents at Michael Debono Ltd are giving new Toyota iQ buyers a Blackberry with their purchase of the tiny new mini-car. Which Blackberry will Toyota iQ buyers be given was not disclosed.
Guess Apple doesn’t sell iPhones in Malta.
Refresher: Power comes from a 1.0L VVT-i 3-cylinder engine making 67-hp and a peak torque of 67 lb-ft. Combined with a 5-speed manual transmission, the iQ returns an impressive 65.7 mpg (55 mpg in U.S. terms).
