Something New for Tokyo: Toyota Fun-Vii Concept to Debut

Toyota will debut their new, fully-interactive Fun-Vii concept at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.

Toyota has big plans for the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, one of which includes an interactive and innovative concept car called the Fun-Vii. The Fun-Vii is one of three new concept models scheduled to debut by the Japanese automaker. The single image of the Fun-Vii concept doesn't reveal a whole lot, however Toyota has released plenty of information to go with its photo. According to the company, it was designed to be 'fully-interactive' and the concept will link "people, cars and society."

The smooth black shell around the car can be used to display content and messages on both the inside and outside, projecting what-have-you to say to the world. The interior also features another intricate lighting system, geared to match the "mood of the moment." It can also connect to surrounding vehicles and infrastructure, allowing the Toyota concept to make contact with your friends driving nearby and recognize potential hazards on the road. The Fun-Vii measures 4,020mm in length, 1,745mm in width, 1,415mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,750mm. It will make its debut shortly at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, kicking off November 30th.
