All wheel drive specialists, Subaru, displayed this funky concept car at the 2005 Tokyo motor show. The B5-TPH (Turbo Parallel Hybrid) which is an environmentally friendly hybrid, displays some of the most distinctive characteristics of any contemporary concept car.

The most prominent of these are the doors which cut into the grey sills for no other reason other than the fact its unique. The angled, rectangular exhausts are a nice touch, and probably the most well thought out styling cues. The large tailgate, hinged just behind the B-post is an intelligent idea for this 'crossover' style concept.

The small 3-part taillights are complicated and unsightly as is the fussy front end.

Powered by a combination of a 2.0 litre ‘boxer’ engine and an electric generator/motor the B5-TPH is yet another hybrid concept from Subaru, the B9 Scrambler being a predecessor.

The styling of the B5-TPH may not be to everyone's taste (in fact it's downright ugly) but at least it breaks new ground.
