The fundamental idea, according to Toyota, was not to reinvent the car, but to take a simpler approach in increasing "capability, quality and pleasure." The Me.We is constructed from a tubular aluminum structure that’s fitted with light and hard-wearing polypropylene panels that are made via a cost-efficient production method and are also easy to personalize. Power comes from in-wheel electric motors at each corner with the batteries located under the floor. To help keep weight down, the floor and horizontal surfaces are made of bamboo. As a result, the Me.We weighs just 1,653 lbs - 20% less than a conventional supermini.
