Toyota 1/X concept car

Make Toyota
Model 1/X
Concept year 2007
Production year -
Engine 0.5 L petrol + electric

The Toyota 1/X (pronounced "one-Xth") concept first went on display at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show.

The 1/X, like the Toyota Prius, is a hybrid powered vehicle. However the 1/X concept weighs just a third of the Prius, and offers double the fuel efficiency.

Power for the Toyota 1/X comes from a 500cc fossil fuel engine working in conjunction with an electric motor which can be charged from the mains. Both the engine and the electric motor are located beneath the rear seat giving the 1/X a mid-engine, rear-drive configuration.

The body of the Toyota 1/X is formed from lightweight carbon fibre reinforced plastic which offers excellent rigidity and strength for minimal weight. And while the styling is bland an unattractive, visibility is superb. But it's the environmentally friendly powertrain, not the looks, which are important on the 1/X concept.
