    Toyota A-BAT Concept

    [​IMG]
    Powered by a 4-cylinder hybrid petrol-electric
    engine, the Toyota A-BAT Concept is a 'green' car

    [​IMG]
    The four seater vehicle sits on 19-inch alloys

    [​IMG]
    The tray has a first aid kit, torch, and a bevy
    of lockable drawers for tools and equipment

    [​IMG]
    The rear seats can be folded away, and
    highlight the A-BAT Concept's versatility

    Shit will never be made. Honda is considering killing the Ridgeline, unibody just doesn't work for trucks.
