Toyota’s mobility/commerce ecosystem, ‘e-Palette’ – amazing, unsettling, black-mirror-esque wonders of tomorrow are revealed.
Toyata is meeting our future retail needs with the ‘e-Palette’ – a fully mobile battery-powered concept that can be customised to host pizza parlours to business meeting.
Brands are queuing up for this innovative design with partners including Amazon, DiDi, Mazda, Pizza Hut and Uber. Testing is coming in 2020, just in time for the Tokyo Olympics. But, if you can’t wait that long, look out for the adaptable minibus-esque concept that can be used for car sharing, delivering your goods or as a mobile e-commerce concept.
Commenting on its new concept, Toyota said: “The automobile industry is clearly amidst its most dramatic period of change as technologies like electrification, connected and automated driving are making significant progress.”
Well, we’re certainly on board.
