As we approach the utopia of “a world without gas powered vehicles”, all of the big dogs are rolling out their own version of an all electric vehicle. Toyota, who has had some experience with this in the past with the RAV-4 Electric Vehicle, is going to debut a battery electric vehicle concept at the upcoming 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
We knew Toyota would be jumping into this game, it was only a matter of time especially from the #1 seller of Hybrid vehicles.
We are not sure if they will be using a current Toyota chassis for the new battery electric Toyota but if we were to guess it would be based off of one of their smaller vehicles ie: Toyota Prius, Corolla or any Scion.
This tip comes in from a press released just issued today:
