The rugged exterior of the A-BAT is contrasted by the four-passenger modern interior. The door trim, shoulder, armrest and instrument panel pads and seat cushions are made of a tough, lightweight and comfortable material that can be selected for personalization. In addition, the colors are coordinated to enhance the sleek interior environment.

Inside, the A-BAT has a retractable, portable navigation unit with a seven-inch diagonal screen and Wi-Fi Internet.

    Dear Toyota
    We bought a 2008 Prius for mpg also for a test for future Toyota Hybrid pickup truck.
    I can tell you who would purchase the 1st one slated for the USA. ME! (as long as it is not pink in color). This prius is a great mid-size car. Great mpg. Average 45 in Middle TN hills.
    I think that I could do very well in this so-called “concept” truck if you would only get it over here soon. My patience is wearing kinda of short while waiting. I am going to look at that Mehindra from India soon if Toyota does act soon.
