Toyota’s New Three-Wheeled Vehicle Has No Steering Wheel

By: | March 9th, 2014

IndustryTap has covered Toyota’s FV2 color-changing vehicle, which alters itself to match your mood. The concept vehicle is continuing to cause quite a stir, this time at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Why?

Because it stood out among everything else, featuring no steering wheel and three wheels. This is important because, as we move into the future, automation is becoming more and more a part of every single thing we do.

Most car companies see vehicles that drive themselves as the future in the automotive industry, rendering steering wheels obsolete.

The driver of the FV2 steers by shifting his or her weight while standing in the vehicle. Toyota “believes the relationship between drivers and their vehicles will continue to develop aspects of trust and understanding, similar to those a rider will have with a horse.”
