Unveiled by Toyota at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, the FT-EV II Concept is a study of an ultra-compact four-seater urban electric vehicle characterized by electric sliding doors, drive-by-wire technology and a retro-futuristic interior.
The distinctive, compact body has bright colors designed in accordance with Vibrant Clarity, Toyota-brand design philosophy. The compact exterior and retro-futuristic interior feature designs that evoke images of the future.
Electric sliding doors were designed with easy boarding and exiting in mind within a limited space; at the touch of a button, an LED turns on and the doors open and close.
Drive-by-wire technology allows all the vehicle functions to be controlled using a joystick, including the accelerator, brakes and steering.
