Toyota Hybrid Truck scrapped.

I try to be as ecologically responsible as possible, and I am a die hard toyota truck person, but the first Toyota Hybrid truck just didn't do it for me. They scrapped it, so the point is mute, but what do yall think? I think it looks like a cartoon truck!

I will be first in line for the hybrid that looks like a Tacoma!

Very ugly and weak looking truck. Toyota was really showing their feminine side with that one. It looks like a Ridgeline with an even bigger vag.

Not looking like a "truck" at all. Sorry, I'm no where near a fan of that. Reminds me too much of a Ridgeline

Hybrid Cars/Trucks

I'm not an expert on designs of cars/trucks, but in my personal opinion I think most of the hybrid car designs look weird and stupid. They are trying to make a big deal out of it because it's a hybrid so they make a design that is way out of the box. They don't get it in my opinion, they should not make a big deal out of it. They should just make the design of the car just like the cars they sell that run on gasoline.
That's partly what happened with the electric running cars when they came out in the 90's. The design did not look like the cars that were currently running on the roads at that time. That and no one wanted to buy a slow expensive car.
Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know what do you guys think?

Yeah...they usually bring in some overseas overpaid fruit cake to design the car, that thinks his car designs are superior above all the other car designs. And the cars don't sell worth a damn.

A truck should look like a truck period. I'm glad that plan lost it's funding.
