Prius light cycle


At the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, Toyota revealed the Tron car. No, wait, I mean it revealed a Prius concept car that looks an awful lot like a four-seater light cycle.

More recently, Toyota has shown off another concept car, the 1/X, so-called because "it weighs 1/Xth the weight of other similar sized models." Which is to say, it's about 1/3 the weight of a Prius; its frame uses carbon-fiber reinforced plastic. And it gets about double the gas mileage of the Prius.

But of course these are just concept cars; there's no indication that they'll ever go into production.


Of course, one feature of the light cycle is that it has rather poor rear visibility....

Who needs rear visibility? We look forward! To the future! We scoff at your outmoded backward-facing mentality!
