At this years Tokyo Motor Show, Toyota presented several concepts for future mobility with one being highly unusual, the electric flying broom. It is unclear at this stage whether this is a Halloween trick, after all, Toyota presented it alongside more serious concepts such as the E-Racer.
However, details are scarce with the press release saying as much as “experience first-hand mobility of the future! Modelled after a broom used by a witch to fly through the air, this mobility platform integrates people and machines, allowing users to reaffirm the enjoyment of mobility.”
Well … That is about as much “technical detail” as we got at this stage but judging by the looks and cultural references of this device, the E-Broom will make any witches’ or warlocks’ heart skip a beat. What we are also unsure about is whether Toyota expects this to be a sweeping success (excuse the pun) in any foreseeable future.
