Announced at the Tokyo Motor Show 2013 is Toyota’s FV2 concept vehicle which not only lets the user customise it, but it can also be driven whilst standing too.
As far as cars go, they are quite limited in terms of customisable specs. Ranges of engines of varying horsepower and speed might be offered by companies looking to capitalise on consumers who are looking for fast cars that they can drive in style and varying wheel sizes might also be offered in an effort to distinguish between city roamers and off road efforts. It’s also somewhat of a no brainer that there are varying car colours and paint styles and decals that allow you to customise your car, but as a whole, there’s not a lot that you can change that hasn’t already been designated by the company that made the vehicle. Now, the Toyota FV2 concept vehicle, which lets you design a great deal, has been announced.
Resembling a TRON light cycle of sorts, the Toyota FV2 concept vehicle, which they announced at the Tokyo Motor Show 2013, is futuristic not just in looks. Sitting at 90 centimetres in height in the car’s ’parked state’, the FV2 might seem quite small. However, while the car may pale in comparison to some other roadworthy behemoths, the 4V2 can be driven whilst standing by raising the car’s roof. Segway-like, the FV2 is steered by the user shifting their body weight, helping the car’s four wheels change direction – left or right – accordingly.
In terms of customisation, the FV2 can change in appearance as the user is able to customise its LCD surface. What you can change amounts up to the tail section and while it’s unclear how much customisation will be on offer, should the FV2 make it to retail, a range of colours and styles will reportedly be on offer for users, which they can change via several touchscreens.
We’ll keep you posted once we know more.
