Click here to download printer friendly versionPUYO is a Japanese word that embodies the tactile traits of this unique car. PUYO is meant to convey all that is warm and friendly, and put a smile on the face of users and pedestrians.

This concept car has a 'gel body' made of soft materials that enhance the 'real world' safety properties of the vehicle. Lights beneath the body shine through the gel, to help highlight doors and other manual functions, and notify users of the vehicle's condition.

PUYO represents a new idea in mobility that brings together the principals of clean, safe and fun all into one environmentally-responsible, people-friendly, yet minimalist design. The concept has a small frame, is ultra-efficient and is powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology.

One of the key goals of the project was to create a cornerless car that was kind to both people and the environment. The 'Seamless Soft Box' is welcoming and inviting to look at, but also makes the most of the box-shaped design's spaciousness, managing to accommodate four people within its tiny frame.

Developed to have a 'silky feel', the PUYO's interior is designed to be inviting and provide a people-friendly cabin with a feeling of space emphasised by transparent materials. Features include an instrument panel monitor, elastic-like controls made from cloth that rise up when the vehicle starts and luminous fluid level displays.

The obvious omission is the steering wheel, which is replaced by a joystick, used for operation and manoeuvring.
