Toyota LINK

The word

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.
