Youthmobile 2030 Design: Toyota LINK
In brief: A customizable mass-transit vehicle to be used in a transportation network.
Vehicle in the news
Make/Model: LINK (Concept)
Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Corp.
This concept is a mass transit rather than a personal vehicle idea. That's what sets it apart from other entrants into the LA Auto Show's Youthmobile 2030 Design Challenge.
Toyota calls it a "mass transportation social network." Users can download unique LINK Skinz to transform the look of the vehicle and LINK Spheres to change the wheels.
The wheels are made of electro-conductive material, drawing power from the road as well as reconverting friction into electricity.
And so ...
Very unusual, this concept is a very different look at both mass transit and the paradigm of vehicle ownership itself.
