Some assembly is definitely required for this one.

The Toyota Camatte57s is an electric sports car designed for the whole family.

Even the kids.

The three-seat car features interchangeable body panels that can be mixed and matched to create the tiny little roadster of your dreams.

Toyota fittingly revealed it at the Tokyo Toy Show this week.

The centrally-located driver’s seat and pedals can be adjusted to allow children to take the wheel, while a parent helps out with steering and brakes from the rear.

The idea behind the car is to build enthusiasm for driving, especially in Japan where people have been increasingly shunning car ownership in recent years.

Unfortunately, this off-highway ride won’t help out there just yet as there are currently no plans to put it into production.
