What will the cars of tomorrow look like? We ask school kids!

What will the cars of tomorrow look like? We ask school kids!
To promote the 2020 Dream Car Art Contest, Toyota GB decided to bring the competition to life by talking to children of Lane Green First School in Wolverhampton about their cars of the future.

The Dream Car Art Contest is a global opportunity for children under 15 to show off their creative flair by imagining how the cars we’ll drive in the future might look.

Presenting cars that can time travel, water plants, jump over obstacles and have an all-important disco button, the children we filmed certainly had vivid ideas for the future of mobility.
