The Cygnet is a production car based on the Toyota iQ with a Vantage front end and luxury interior, to be sold for $45,000 to $75,000 to buyers who want an expensive city car.
The company said that it expects the car will go on sale in 2011, but there were no plans to sell it in the United States.

Tesla Motors have teamed up with Swiss luxury watch company Tag Heuer to produce a special edition of its Roadster.
The vehicle will make its debut at the Geneva Auto Show this week. The idea is for both luxury brands to increase their global cachet.
Tag, which is unveiling a new tech-savvy watch on March 18, has yet to become a major presence in the U.S., while Tesla is still building its presence in Europe.
The car itself, designed by Tesla chief designer Franz von Holzhausen, integrates Tag design features into the dashboard, center console and exterior.
Koenigsegg has unveiled the Agera concept at the Geneva Motor Show.
Built to celebrate the company’s 15th anniversary, the Agera aims to “take the Koenigsegg experience to the next level, both on the road and the track.”
Its name, Agera, in Swedish translates to the verb “to act” and was picked because it “symbolizes the Koenigsegg philosophy”.
The name also comes from Greek word Ageratos, which in ancient Greek means “ageless”.
