The electric e-Palette by Japanese auto company Toyota was updated to have doors that are larger, lower floors, as well as electric ramps for accessibility purposes. The interior features versatile handrails and sets that will accommodate everyone. In addition, the design will boast contrasting colors to direct people who might experience color blindness.
The vehicle is intended to be used during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, transporting athletes and organizational staff in a "fuss-free and comfortable" manner. The electric e-Palette will be running a loop service to transport athletes and staff around the villages and the sites for competition. As an autonomous vehicle, the upgraded auto will alert pedestrians about its actions and will use sophisticated 3D-mapping technology and numerous sensors.
