Nice effort and an innovative concept by Toyota to mix-match a car and smart phone. Not very practical though but sure offers an idea how the future could be like.

The thing is:

The first 'petrol powered automobiles' were styled to look like the carraiges of old.

The current gen of electric cars are styled to look like the petrol powered cars.

When electric cars really get into the mainstream, with compact electric motors, the designers imagination can take hold.
