Press Release :
âPUYOâ is a Japanese onomatopoeia that expresses the sensation of touching the vehicleâs soft body. It is meant to convey a warm, friendly impression.
The PUYO represents a new idea in mobility that brings together âcleanâ, âsafeâ and âfunâ functionality in an environmentally responsible, people-friendly minimalist design featuring an ultra-high efficiency, small frame and fuel cell technology to please both users and onlookers alike.
The development theme for the PUYO exterior was to create a cornerless, âSeamless Soft Boxâ form that is kind to both people and the environment. The goal was to create a personable design with the feel of an adorable pet, while taking advantage of the maximum spaciousness of the box-shaped design. The PUYOâs âgel bodyâ features soft materials to promote greater real-world safety. Moreover, the body has been made luminescent to guide people into the proper operating position and notify them of the vehicleâs condition, facilitating a more intimate relationship between people and their cars.
Developed to have a âSilky Feelâ, the PUYOâs interior is designed to provide a refreshing, people-friendly space imbued with a feeling of transparency. Features such as an instrument panel monitor, controls that take advantage of the elastic qualities of cloth to rise up when the vehicle starts up, luminous fluid meter displays, and a joystick for intuitive operation are all designed to gently support occupantsâ senses and sensibilities.
