Toyota lets kids learn to drive with Camatte Petta Concept car…
Toyota will take its Camatte Petta concept car to this month’s Tokyo Toy Show and let kids take the wheel and parents the back seat.
TOYOTA’S CAMATTE PETTA CONCEPT car will be at this month’s Tokyo Toy Show, allowing “Young visitors to the show will be able to get behind the wheel of the Camatte Petta concept car for a hands-on driving experience around a test track on Toyota’s stand,” Toyota said in a statement.
“By participating, children will first learn how to use a car’s steering wheel, accelerator and brake on a simulator before using these skills to take control of a real vehicle. An adult seated behind and to the left of each child can monitor steering and braking to help develop their driving skills”.
Each child that gets behind the wheel and completes the course will be given their own ‘driver’s licence’ and allowed to decorate the concept car with magnetic decals. The Camatte Petta concept is more than three-metres long with three seats and is powered by an electric motor. The name Camatte is based on the Japanese word for caring.
