Toyota Pedal Car Concept

This concept car from Toyota caught my eye, especially the retro steel looking split rims. Presented at the 2012 International Tokyo Toy Show, the “Camette”, like most concepts we see from car manufacturers will not see the production stage. It was designed to promote cars to a future generation of potential drivers. 

Anyway, the amazing thing is there is no engine, and supposedly it is propelled by pedalling. Though I cannot find any evidence of this. I have to wonder how a couple of kids would be able to pedal this vehicle, given its mass and size. The video below of the assembly is pretty cool.

  1. What makes you think it is propelled by pedalling?

  2. Various reports on web mention, no engine, and that it is a "pedal car"

    Indeed from the video it looks like it has some sort of electric engine.
