Exterior

The FV2 is unique looking. Its four wheels are diagonally aligned, a wheel at the front and rear, and one on each side, with a cockpit for the driver.

The car is driven in a sitting position with the canopy closed or in a standing position with the transparent canopy open and acting as a full-height windshield.2013-Toyota-FV2-Concept-just-a-concept-bb-B

Steering

The car does not have a steering wheel. Instead, the car is steered by the driver by shifting his body side to side, forward and backwards to move the car left, right, forward and back.

Shifts in the driver's weight are monitored by the FV2 to perform actions.

Driving

The windshield has an extensive augmented reality (AR) display with a sophisticated navigation and mapping system that provides information such as GPS, speed and distance.

The car also comes with advanced transport system technology allowing it to detect other vehicles and traffic, which provides the driver with safety information such as warnings about other vehicles in blind spots.

Emotional

The FV2 can also read the driver's moods by using voice and facial recognition technology, and adjusts itself accordingly. The car can change its exterior display color to reflect the driver's mood, facilitating intimate bonding between the driver and vehicle.

It also connects with the driver by using driving history and driving skill information to give destination suggestions to assist the driver. Toyota has released a Smartphone app that allows users to get a taste of the futuristic driving experience the FV2 offers.
