Also scheduled to be presented at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show is this, the Toyota Rin Concept. Looking like a golf cart from the future, the concept is Toyota’s attempt to turn the drivers’ attention “to society and nature, producing a healthy rhythm for both mind and body”. Yeah, right!

Anyway, here’s an excerpt from Toyota’s press release, to give you an idea of what they were thinking about when they designed it. After that, click on the ‘Read More’ link to see more photos of the Toyota Rin Concept.

# In addition to featuring comfortable, heated seats, an oxygen-level conditioner and pinpoint humidifier, uses green glass that reduces infiltration of ultraviolet and infrared light and makes the surroundings seem brighter and clearer to increase cabin comfort. # Creates a feeling of harmony with the surrounding environment by using sliding doors with a low window that lets you view nature at ground level, as well as headlights with light distribution control that take into consideration pedestrians and vehicles coming in the opposite direction. # Uses the motif of the deep-rooted and tall-growing Yakusugi tree (a variety of Japanese cypress) for its exterior and interior design to express both “harmony with nature” and “healthy mind and body”.

# Contrasts deep green with beige in its interior color scheme to richen the complexions of those onboard and evoke a healthy mental and physical feeling.
