CES 2018: Toyota unveils autonomous e-commerce mobility platform e-Palette

Announced on Monday morning, the e-Palette could enable on-demand use cases for retail experiences, personal shops, markets, showrooms, and office sharing while transiting to and from the workplace. Ride sharing transport could also share the space with on-demand meal deliveries.
Businesses and communities could additionally combine several e-Palettes in one place to form on-demand malls, medical clinics, entertainment, and festivals. According to Toyota’s president, the e-Palette vehicles can be reconfigured for different uses within a single day, with a Toyota distribution centre to house the vehicles.
Toyota said the company has created an alliance of business partners called the e-Palette Alliance to support e-commerce mobility, turning its mobility services platform into a common platform.
