Accessible People Mover -- This new concept in mobility aims to ensure those with physical impairments aren't excluded from enjoying the Games.
It’s projected this fleet will emit 50 percent less carbon dioxide than if all of the vehicles were powered by conventional gasoline and diesel engines. Further C02 reductions are anticipated as Toyota plans to supplement the commercial vehicles with advanced mobility products — such as its Accessible People Mover, e-Palette automated driving platform, AI-enhanced Toyota Concept-i and a mix of small one-person Walking Area BEVs.
Bottom line: Toyota intends to achieve the lowest emissions target for an official vehicle fleet at the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Mono Ride -- Here's one example of the small one-person Walking Area BEVs that will make their debut at the Games.
Meanwhile, the safety of the athletes and fans will also be a top priority. All of the commercially-available vehicles on site will come fitted with Toyota Safety Sense or Lexus Safety System +. Most will also be equipped with Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS), designed to assist with braking in the event of unintended misapplication of the acceleration pedal.
But that’s not all. Toyota vehicles will also play a role in mass transit — with the hydrogen-powered SORA bus — and in behind-the-scenes support — with Fuel Cell Forklifts made and sold by Toyota Industries Corporation.
