Yes! You read it absolutely correct!

World’s largest car maker Toyota Motor Corporation has come up with a concept car, FT-EV II. The FT-EV II is going to take all car enthusiasts by surprise as it does not have a steering wheel like regular cars do.

You must be wondering, how anyone could drive a car without foot pedals and steering wheels. Well, it turns out that is how this car functions.

The Toyota FT-EV II concept car relies on the core technology of the Toyota Hybrid System. The concept car runs on a lithium ion battery and this battery can provide fuel for upto ninety kilometres. Moreover, the FT-EV II can reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. Cool, eh?

But what will happen if this car goes into production?
Traffic rules will change, that’s for sure, particularly for this car. New traffic rules will then allow drivers of this car to talk on cell phone without the hands free devices while driving as the driver’s hands will be free.
There is no information about the price or availability as the Toyota FT-EV II is still in the conceptual stage.

Does this car drive with no driver effort?

I'm asking this because it is said that mobile usage will be permitted. And also no mentioning about how this car turns.

This car doesn't have a steering wheel but has got a handle which we see in 3 Wheelers, So that is used to make turns.

This appears to be a ripoff of the Saab 9000 Prometheus Prototype! Needless to say it wasn't very successful idea even in 1993...
