What the hell Toyota?

It looks like the ABAT is going to become reality and the diesel Tundra is a no go. If I was running Toyota, I think that I'd be doing the exact opposite.

I agree, I was hoping for the diesel to come to the US, but it looks like it's not going to happen now....Bummer....IMHO, I think the ABAT is fugly myself, but that's just me..

I agree, the Abat is the damn definition of FUGLY. To be honest, I'm surprised they think somebody would buy one. Oh well, I guess if the Yaris sells this will to.

I guess what they say about FJ owners being dumb is not completely true after all.

no diesel tacoma?? No diesel Toyotas in the US.

Stupid car companies should be allowed to fail - so toyota gets a pass overall, but this isn't going the right way IMHO.

It may not be so bad. It will be interesting to see the non concept version and see what they change. I agree with one of the responders in the article about blind spots. Of course Toyota has never really taken into consider blind spots as it is now.

I can see a few appealing aspects to the abat. Compact size, convenience features, and the option to make your bed 8' long. The styling is all wrong though. It looks like a toy car.

I don't like the look of the concept A-Bat, but I'm not going to trash it yet. I want to see the production version first. After all, I thought the Scion xB's were ugly as shit when I 1st saw one, but they sparked my interest and I ended up buying one and loved it.

Agreed. I also think that the Abat concept is certainly a step in the right direction for a hybrid vehicle... There just isn't anything out there that makes sense for my needs in that market segment. The Abat is certainly something I would consider though.
