Default iQ to the U.S.?

Don't know if anyone has seen this already. I found this on <a href="http://blogs.cars.com/kickingtires/2....html">Kicking Tires.</a> The article is almost one month old and I couldn't find this on Autoweek as referenced in the article but it sounds promising!

Quote:
Toyota unveiled a production version of its iQ microcar at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, and now AutoWeek is reporting that the company may import the iQ to the U.S. if it can meet federal safety standards, which are more stringent than those overseas.

The iQ is slightly larger than a Smart ForTwo and has rear seats that bump up against the rear hatch and glass. Wed guess those seats would have to go if the iQ were to meet safety requirements. Wed also guess Toyota will wait to see if the Smart is successful before making a business case for the iQ.
