Toyota Showcases A-BAT Hybrid Concept

February 06, 2008

DETROIT – The recent Detroit Auto Show featured Toyota’s A-BAT Hybrid Concept. The vehicle has four doors, a pug nose, and a sloping roof line that comes down on either side of a four-foot cargo bed that can be extended to six feet by dropping the tailgate. The cab can hold oversized items by opening a transparent sliding roof panel. There is also storage to be found in a sliding compartment underneath the pickup bed itself, according to the Web site www.carjunky.com.

The interior of the A-BAT hybrid is somewhat futuristic, with folding rear seats for increased cargo capacity, a non-traditional steering wheel shape, and dual information screens in front of the driver and passenger. The pickup is powered by Toyota’s four-cylinder hybrid gas/electric system.
