TMS 2013: Toyota's Funky JPN Taxi and Aqua G Sports Concepts
NOVEMBER 05, 2013
One of the oddest-looking vehicles on display at Toyota’s Tokyo Motor Show booth will be the JPN Taxi Concept, which previews a next-generation taxi for the Japanese market. Toyota says the study was developed with Japanese hospitality in mind, offering ease of ingress and egress and a comfortable interior size in a compact body.
The JPN Taxi Concept measures 4,350 mm (171 inches) in length, 1,695 mm (66.7 inches) in width and 1,700 mm (67 inches) in height and has a wheelbase of 2,750 mm (108.2 inches), offering space for five passengers.
The concept features large electrically operated doors and a low, flat floor that ease access for passengers, particularly for children and seniors. Toyota says the open, roomy interior has been designed “to ensure ease-of-use at all times.”
