Developed in collaboration with french architect jean-marie massaud, the toyota ME.WE electric car approaches transportation design with the intent to ‘instill’ human, economic and environmental challenges into a realistic conception of an ‘anti-crisis’ car for today. the cabriolet embodies an absorbing sensory experience that is adaptable to a wide variety of lifestyles, transitioning from the culture of ‘more’ to the culture of ‘better’.
Manufactured out of a tubular aluminum structure, the ME.WE devises interchangeable expanded polypropylene body panels (doors, wings, bonnet, bumpers, etc.), where bamboo used for the floor and horizontal surfaces. additionally, the concept integrates an electric motor in each wheel, transforming it into a two or all-wheel-drive vehicle with the inherent capability of coping effectively with a range of different terrains.
