    The transparent roof and windows form a one-piece deck that rises to allow occupants to enter and exit, and the entire exterior has been designed with the aesthetic codes of a boat. But the most important thing about AKXY2 is its interior and the materials used, which are the true specialty of this Japanese company. In its cabin, everything from textiles to elastomers with different origins have been used, but with the idea of ​​contributing to a lower carbon footprint. The interior surfaces are covered in a kind of microfiber suede partially made from recycled polyester, from recycled PET plastics, bio-based PET and marine debris. Antimicrobial fabrics are also used to protect the interior of the car from the spread of pathogens. The cabin has a sensor that monitors CO₂ levels inside to maintain optimal air quality while reducing energy use and protecting all occupants, especially children.

These tires improve energy and fuel efficiency thanks to their low rolling resistance, while reducing the generation of microplastics during rolling, another polluting source in the atmosphere. The aesthetic result is striking, although not spectacular, but for all that its creators explain, AKXY2 must be a car to “feel” and enjoy staying inside above any other concept.
