Toyota is going to debut a new family-oriented concept vehicle at the International Tokyo Toy Show 2012 from June 14 through June 17. Toyota has named the concept “Camatte” and is aiming to bring delight to parents and children with the toy concept.
The goal of the Camatte is to convey the joy and dreams of motor vehicles to current and future drivers, by providing an opportunity for parents and children to experience together the fun of driving, car customization and car enthusiasm. The Camatte comes in two versions, the Sora and the Daichi. The Camatte Sora takes on more of a coupe-like style, while the Daichi is more truck-like with its tan exterior.
According to Toyota the concept features a customizable body with easily removable and installable body panels and enables the adoption of a wide range of color and design combinations. Toyota also says that the interior features a triangular seating arrangement with reduced distance between the single, center-positioned driver’s seat and the two rear seats to emphasize family intimacy and facilitate parent-child communication, thus creating a fun space to enjoy driving. The pedals and seats can also be positioned to enable a child to pedal the car, while a an adult seats in the rear-right seat assists with steering and braking.
