This ultra-maneuverable concept is powered by an electric motor.

All that power heads to the rear wheels.

Toyota estimates this EV concept's range at about 124 miles.

Using Toyota's Active Lean system, the car will quite literally lean into corners.

The front wheels lean up to 10 degrees while the rears stay upright.

Hand controls manipulate the throttle and brakes.

It's a rare sight when a vehicle without pedals isn't entirely autonomous.

But, of course, it's also equipped with autonomous driving systems.

The interior is made from recycled materials.

And you'll probably never see one on the road, being a concept and all.
