Toyota Concept-i series pieces together door-to-door mobility

Toyota AI car aims for oneness with driver AI News: Toyota to Test Cars That Can React to Your Current State of Mind

The Toyota Fine-Comfort Ride concept has a driving range up to 600 miles on the Japan test cycle.

Each wheel packs its own electric motor, while the batteries that power them are fed by hydrogen. The "diamond shaped" body narrows at the rear, but remains wide for the front half of the vehicle, a concept whose goals are "maximizing the space of the second row seats and aerodynamic performance".

The Concept-i WALK, meanwhile, is a compact, three-wheel vehicle designed for safe use even on sidewalks and walking paths, with the ability "to rotate on the spot within a length less than a person's stride and width less than a person's shoulder width", according to a statement announcing the smart vehicles.

Toyota says that the Toyota Fine-Comfort Ride concept is more than just a "ride", since it offers more, like an Agent function and a touch display arranged around the driver and the passenger seats.

The seats can swivel, making the auto into a "communication space for individuals", and the windows surrounding the passengers are displays. The initials of Fine-Comfort also, probably not coincidentally, represent its fuel-cell powertrain.

Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NASDAQ:KMI) To Release Earnings
The pipeline company reported $0.14 earnings per share for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of $0.15 by ($0.01). This buyback authorization authorizes the pipeline company to purchase up to 4.6% of its shares through open market purchases.

The Fine-Comfort Ride is a long hatchback - at 4,830mm, it's around 30cm longer than a Prius, although it's marginally shorter than Toyota's existing production fuel-cell auto, the Mirai.

Inside, as the car's name suggests, the focus is on comfort. That's a good thing, considering the current attitude towards conventional internal combustion engines (and the fact that the theme for this year's Tokyo Motor Show is "Beyond the Motor").

(1) The 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 is to be held at Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo's waterfront area from October 25 through November 5, with press days on October 25 and 26, a special-invitation day on October 26, a preview day on October 27 and general-public days from October 28 to November 5. As of the end of December 2013, Toyota conducts its business worldwide with 52 overseas manufacturing companies in 27 countries and regions.

The Concept-i series includes two vehicles, the Concept-i and Concept-i RIDE. For more information, please visit www.toyota-global.com.
