The Toyota FV2 concept is among the most interesting vehicles the automaker is bringing at the Tokyo Motor Show this week.
Toyota Japan has also developed a new smartphone app to see the concept being unveiled live at the show if you can’t be there, which can be downloaded here.

The FV2 concept car was built using Toyota’s “Fun to Drive” philosophy, which takes it to a whole new step by connecting the driver physically and emotionally to the driving experience.

Toyota is trying to replicate something like the relationship between a horse and its rider, with the FV2 being made more for “riding” than “driving” as it has no kind of steering wheel or joystick. So you’ll have to shift your weight on it in order to accelerate, brake and steer. Moreover, it will use voice and image recognition to determine the driver’s mood, accumulate driving history and suggest destinations.

Have a look at the FV2 working in this animation bellow.
