Where better to unveil a vehicle that’s all about bringing the family together than a toy show? Toyota is presenting the Camatte57s, a sporty, open-top family-focused concept car, in the colourful surroundings of the Kids’ Life Zone at this week’s Tokyo Toy Show.
Toyota’s new concept is about sharing ideas to build the ideal vehicle, inspired by the fun generations of mums, dads and kids have had making things together. It believes involving youngsters in choosing the shape and look of a vehicle will help these drivers of the future learn more about the fun aspects of motoring.
The Camatte57s is made up of 57 small, lightweight, detachable panels that can be finished in a wide choice of different colours 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 vehicle measures 3000mm long by 1 440mm wide and 1 000mm high, and seats three.
