Toyota ME.WE EV Concept revealed [videos]

Toyota has unveiled a new concept called ME.WE which was co-developed with French inventor and designer Jean-Marie Massaud.

According to Massaud, he has sought to create an “anti-crisis” car that addresses contemporary human, economic and environmental challenges, bringing his independent vision and experience from outside the motor industry.

This funky looking concept is 3440mm long, 1750mm wide, 1600mm tall and weighs just 750kg.

The ME.WE concept features a tubular aluminum chassis and polypropylene panels, with power coming from four electric in-wheel motors from the i-ROAD concept, while the the battery pack is located under the floor.

For the floor Toyota used a bamboo construction while another noteworthy idea is the rear seat, which is mounted on roof rails and can be stored beneath the front seat or removed altogether and used for picnic seating.
