Toyota recently announced the new Toyota Accessible People Mover (APM) vehicle for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. This is a low-speed, electric vehicle that will be used to conveniently transport visitors and staff at the Games with three rows of seating and accommodations for those in wheelchairs and if necessary, a stretcher. 

During these upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo, Toyota is planning to use approximately 200 new APM models to help transport visitors and staff across the facilities quickly and efficiently. In fact, these vehicles will be moving between events and competitions, as well as to non-event official sites like the Olympic Village.
