The figure of a compact SUV named uBox was performed with a futuristic design. It is a concept car developed by Toyota with the students from Clemson University, South Carolina.
As quoted from AutoExpress, the car was designed by the university’s International Center for Automotive Research, and is intended to appeal to 'Generation Z' (i.e. people born from the mid-nineties onwards).

Over two years, 18 graduate engineering students at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research, plus two more students at ArtCenter College of Design, put together a future Toyota—without any of the tacked-on tuner cliches. Conversely, the uBox is about detachable parts, including all the dash trim pieces and air vents, which are 3-D printed. The result reminds us of a modern-day, scaled-down Previa minivan with a dash of MRAP.
The uBox has a boxy, MPV-like design like the original Renault Espace and bodywork that's beset with angles and curves. Standout details include boomerang-style LEDs and suicide rear doors. There’s also a pair of composite carbon fibre rails that swoop upwards from the front-mounted spoiler to the top of the curved glass roof.

The car concept have a large enough size, but claimed to have a fairly light weight and each of car component is designed uses the Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). The uBox is fully electric, which not only allows for emission free driving but the ability to power kit lke your laptop or tablet from the in-built 110V sockets.
