This cute little number is the Pivo 2, an advanced electric concept car that will debut at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show.

Powered by advanced compact lithium-ion batteries and featuring a unique rotating cabin, Pivo 2 has no reverse gear and employs "drive by-wire" technology for braking and steering.

Each of the four wheels are powered by Nissan’s advanced electric in-wheel 3D motor and can turn through 90 degrees to allow Pivo 2 to drive sideways as well as forward.

Oh, and it talks. With conversations possible in Japanese and English, a unique interface allows the driver to communicate directly with the car on everything from basic vehicle functions through to the nearest available parking.
