Pizza Hut Among Retail Partners to Test Toyota’s e-Palette


Japanese car manufacturer Toyota has unveiled the e-Palette, a mobile store conceived to double as a ride-sharing or package delivery service. According to CNN Money, the company has partnered with ridesharing giants like Didi and Uber, as well as retailers including Pizza Hut and Amazon.

The electric, self-driving technology will be piloted during the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, while testing in the United States and other markets will begin shortly thereafter. The automobile will be designed with a low floor and open interior space. Spanning between 13 to 23 feet in length, the design also will be easily reconfigurable in order to accommodate small stores. It is expected to debut in three sizes when it hits the market.
