Toyota’s Customizable Concept Car Can Be Driven By Children [Video]
The Camatte57s aims to bring parents and kids closer together as they work collaboratively on building their car.
Toyota is displaying the Camatte57s, an open-top family-oriented concept car, at the International Tokyo Toy Show until June 16th. Aimed at bringing parents and children closer together as they work in collaboration on building their ideal car, the vehicle provides an opportunity for them to experience the fun of driving and car customization.
Compared to the Camatte concept exhibited last year, the Camatte57s offers even greater ease and a wider range of customization possibilities. It features 57 detachable and lightweight body panels on the exterior to allow easy and extensive color and design customization.
The open-top design offers a liberating driving experience while also enhancing visibility to increase the ease of customization. The seats are arranged in a triangular configuration with one front seat and two rear seats to emphasize family intimacy and facilitate communication.
The vehicle can even be driven by children (at non-public venues such as go-kart tracks) if the pedals and seats are adjusted. An adult in the rear-right seat can assist with steering and braking to help develop the child’s driving skills. You can check out the Camatte57s in the video below:
