It seems that Toyota wanted to carry two dissimilar worlds together and build a particular concept dubbed Toyota ME.WE Concept that is the product of partnership between its incredible ED2 European Design studio in Nice, France, and the famous French architect, Jean-Marie Massaud. Toyota describes ME.WE is a pick-up, off-roader, convertible and also small city car in just one car. In addition, it’s a no-extras package, envisaged as an ‘anti-excess’ vehicle. In a word, the stunning Toyota ME.WE symbolizes the evolution from the culture of ‘more’ into the culture of ‘better'”.
It measures 3,440mm (135.4-inches) in length, 1,750mm (68.9-inches) in width and 1,600mm (63-inches) in height. The impressive ME.WE is not only shorter but it’s also wider and taller than the recent Fiat Panda Mk3. A nice tubular aluminum chassis and also the molded polypropylene body panels assist keep it weight down to 1,653 pounds, or about 20% less than a conventional steel-built model. Meanwhile, the interchangeable body panels that are 100% recyclable are weight only 31 pounds.
Inside of this car, main concern is given to the driver and also passengers together with their luggage put in the roof underneath a fold-out, the weatherproof neoprene cover, or instead, in a retractable platform at the back. Its rear seat bench is mounted on the floor rails and it can be detached and even employed as a picnic seating. The floor itself is made from bamboo. Meanwhile, the other element is the extremely minimal design of the instrumentation that includes a single screen on top of the steering wheel.
As stated by Toyota, the heating and also air conditioning are brought by a low-energy air pump and also the electric seat heaters to decrease power consumption. Meanwhile, all windows of this car can be opened, comprising the windscreen. For its motivation, the stunning ME.WE puts it faith in the similar four in-wheel motors as the Toyota i-ROAD that can be operated in 2-wheel drive mode or 4-wheel drive mode, with batteries placed below the floor. The impressive ME.WE will be showed off at the Japanese brand’s Le Rendez-vous Toyota experience center on the Champs Elysées in Paris.
