Toyota unveils Hi-Ct green-friendly mini-tank

Not to be outdone by the antics at the New York Auto Show, the Bangkok International Motor Show had a couple of surprises as well. The Toyota Hi-Ct concept car made its debut during the event with a decidedly tank-like profile. Despite the car's bulky looks, this is in fact a green hybrid vehicle that can charge from an external power source via an AC100V accessory socket.

The car also features a removable trunk and bicycle/surfboard deck for those granola-chomping weekends us city dwellers are always hearing about. As going green becomes ever more stylish it seems like just a matter of time before we stop relying on prehistoric fossil fuel to power our horseless carriages.
