Toyota Hybrid X: the lowdown

Toyota's love affair with the hybrid continues: it'll show this Hybrid X at the Geneva Motor Show next month, hinting at a second Toyota hybrid to sell alongside the Prius. It's designed to showcase Toyota's new hybrid design language - a fresh look for its high-tech petrol-electric models, to differentiate them from its more conventional-fueled models. More excitement, less prosaic ordinariness, is the order of the day. This teaser shot doesn't reveal much, but CAR Online understands that Toyota is planning to introduce more triangular motifs, as seen on the FT-HS petrol-electric supercar, which will also be at the Geneva show. Toyota has vowed to sell 10 hybrids by 2010 - leaving space for at least two more models to be sold in Europe.
