A car customizable by the whole family
Toyota unveiled its new Camatte57s Concept at the Tokyo Toy Show. The family-focused open-top concept was presented at the colorful surroundings of the Kid’s Life Zone at the show.
The Japanese automaker’s new concept is about sharing ideas to build an ideal car inspired by families who like building things together. By involving youngsters in choosing the shape and look of a car, it will help these drivers of the future learn more about the fun aspects of motoring.
The Camatte57s builds on Toyota’s original Camatte concept, shown last year, with a greater range of customization opportunities that are even easier to apply.
The body is made up of 57 small, lightweight, detachable panels that can be finished in a wide choice of different colors and designs. The open top roadster body style adds to the fun factor and allows everyone on board to enjoy the colourful exterior they have created.
The pedals and seats can be adjusted so that even children can drive. The position of the right-hand rear seat will let adults help with steering and braking, so the youngsters can make an early start on developing their driving skills in appropriate, safe places, off the public highway.
Powered by an electric motor, the car measures 3,000mm long by 1,440mm wide and 1,000mm high, and seats three.
