Actually, the e-Palette concept has been present since 2018 as the first Toyota autonomous vehicle. This car is a reflection of Toyota's future step into a transition to becoming a mobility company that carries the theme of Mobility for All. And now the vehicle concept is being on display at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.
From its appearance, the Toyota e-Palette has a front and rear display with an almost similar design. Then the interior uses trim, floors, seating and other components by using contrasting colors so that it is very helpful for those who have deficiencies in vision. In addition, this vehicle is designed to accommodate 20 seated passengers, 4 wheelchairs and 7 standing passengers.
At the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics events, Toyota e-Palette will be operated and served the athletes' villages to transport athletes and staff around the area. But it does not rule out the possibility that in the future this vehicle will be mass-produced and made into urban public transportation rides. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TOYOTA | AUTOCAR | DEZEEN]
