Toyota unveils the e-Palette to an excited crowd at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show.
The future of ridesharing is uncertain as the once untouchable king of the game, Uber, continues its public mea culpa tour. As Uber addresses its many woes, automakers look to fill the void. Enter Toyota’s e-Palette concept vehicle.
Toyota took to the main stage at 2018’s Consumer Electronics Show, CES, and unveiled a modern concept that “harnesses the benefits of artificial intelligence and predictive analytics, connected network, and electric vehicle technologies to get people where they want to go safely, conveniently and in an environmentally friendly way,” said Toyota’s senior vice president and chief information officer Zack Hicks. While the e-Palette remains in the “concept car” stage of planning, this is a clear indication of the future Toyota wishes to build for the consumer.
