They have been proven to be far more energy-efficient than their gas-powered equivalents, but limited range, long charging times and high costs have prevented electric vehicles from really catching on.

Toyota's New Transit Idea Is Like A Bikeshare For Tiny Electric Cars

Small, weird-looking smartcars are nothing new; there are plenty of them on the road, especially in cities where space is at a premium.

Toyota's New Cars Will Have A Nexus 7 Built Right Into The Dashboard

Toyota Recalling 300,000 Cars In Australia

Toyota's FT-1 Concept Is Hardcar Porn (Get It?)

Puns aside, this thing is angry looking. Like ‘I’m coming to your house to tell you off for cutting me off three states ago,” kind of angry. You might not be able to drive it in the real world, but you can certainly get hands on with it elsewhere.


Water Vapour Will Be The Only Emission From Toyota's New Fuel Cell Car

Electric-only cars might be envogue right now, but Toyota is pursuing another eco-friendly alternative to gasoline engines with its FCV concept. The company is now claiming the vehicle will be available sometime in 2015.
