A toaster-shaped smart Toyota of the 2000s

~MOst WeirdToyota in its work in the world of the automotive industry as one of the largest manufacturers in the world, actually has produced many motor vehicles. Well, among the many vehicles made by The Japanese auto-giant, there are also many unique and strangely shaped motor vehicles which sometimes makes us frown while asking ourselves, 'how can the big-company like Toyota make such strange vehicle?'

That thing spontaneous crossed our minds when seen these two unique four-wheeled vehicles of Toyota in the status of Quirky Rides on Twitter some time ago. Uniquely, these two vehicles were made by Toyota in early of 2000s. Initially, we've had thought that the Japanese manufacturer engineers might be experienced déjà vu or even brain cramps when making those vehicles (Ups, sorry).💨 Before you feel more curious about those vehicles, come on let's see below!

Previously we had discussed the Toyota WiLL VI and the next weird-shaped car called the Toyota POD Concept (might be some of you seen it like a toaster). It is a future concept car was built by Toyota in collaboration with the compatriot electronics company Sony and is featured with an artificial intelligence system that makes it appear more personal. By such artificial intelligence system as if could be made the Toyota POD seem alive.

How can, there many advanced features inside the car, such the screen with various displays generated by Sony-software, so it can create shopping lists, play music and radio. Even the car can also judge the attitudes and moods of drivers based on their reactions and how they drive, also can offer suggestions on how to improve their mood at the time.

Besides that, the seats inside the car's cabin are made in such a way as a high-cozy seat that can be rotated freely. While on the exterior, the Toyota POD Concept can express its own feelings by colored LEDs (red as angry, yellow as happy, blue as sad) as well as antennae and which can be wagged, like a dog's tail.

The car also features a hands only 'drive-by-wire' control system enabling steering, braking and acceleration to be operated through a single controller. However, the automaker did not provide any information about the drivetrain and other related technical data, we assumed the POD concept car is driven by an electric motor.
This unique car is first introduced at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show. As we've mentioned before, the PODs were designed some kind of your pet on wheels in the future, sadly never get into the Toyota's production lines.😒 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WIKIPEDIA | OLDCONCEPTCARS | CARTHROTTLE | ULTIMATESPECS | TOYOTA UK MAGAZINE ]
