Dismantling Manual

This guide was developed to educate and assist dismantlers in the safe handling of Scion/Toyota iQ EV electric vehicles. IQ EV dismantling procedures are similar to other non-electric Scion/Toyota vehicles with the exception of the high voltage electrical system. It is important to recognize and understand the high voltage electrical system features and specifications of the Scion/Toyota iQ EV electric vehicle, as they may not be familiar to dismantlers.

High voltage electricity powers the electric motor, DC/DC converter, battery coolant heater, air conditioning (A/C) compressor, cabin coolant heater and inverter. All other automotive electrical devices such as the headlights, radio, and gauges are powered from a separate 12 Volt auxiliary battery. Numerous safeguards have been designed into the iQ EV to help ensure the high voltage, approximately 277.5 Volt, Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Electric Vehicle (EV) battery assembly is kept safe and secure in an accident.

The Li-ion EV battery assembly contains sealed batteries that are similar to rechargeable batteries used in some battery-operated power tools and other consumer products. The electrolyte is absorbed in the cell plates and will not normally leak out even if the battery is cracked.
High voltage cables, identifiable by orange insulation and connectors, are isolated from the metal chassis of the vehicle. Additional topics contained in the guide include:

  • Scion/Toyota iQ EV identification.
  • Major electric vehicle component locations and descriptions.

By following the information in this guide, dismantlers will be able to handle iQ EV electric vehicles as safely as the dismantling of a conventional non-electric automobile.

The Toyota iQ is a transverse-engined, front-wheel-drive city car that was manufactured by Toyota and marketed in a single generation for Japan (2008–2016); Europe (2008–2015); and North America (2012–2015), where it was marketed as the Scion iQ. A rebadged variant was marketed in Europe as the Aston Martin Cygnet (2009–2013).

Designed at the Toyota European Design and Development studio in Nice, France, the iQ is noted for its specialized engineering to maximize passenger space while minimizing exterior length. The design accommodates three passengers—and provisionally a fourth, under very tight conditions.

Following a concept presented at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show, the production iQ debuted at the March 2008 Geneva Motor Show. Japanese sales began in November 2008 and European sales in January 2009.

In 2008, the iQ was named the Japanese Car of the Year. The name iQ, an initialism of the term intelligence quotient, recalls a competitor, the Smart Fortwo. The letters “iQ” also stand for “individuality”, “innovation”, “quality”, a hint at its “cubic form” and also a “cue” for owners to embrace new types of vehicles and lifestyles.

The iQ reached the end of production in December 2015, and it was discontinued in Japan on 4 April 2016.
