Toyota has set out its vision for the future of motoring. It envisages accident-proof eco-cars, powered by a non-polluting engine that can clean the air around it, running on open roads free of congestion.

By 2050, the group envisages a recycling society: there would be no petrol stations, instead vehicles would run on hydrogen produced using renewable energy.
