Chicago Auto Show Concepts - The Toyota Rhombus
This Toyota isn't square. It's rhombus.

Meet Toyota's new concept car at the 2021 Chicago Auto Show.

Our friends across the pond call it the Toyota Rhombus.

If you've forgotten geometry, here's a definition: any parallelogram with equal sides, including a square.

Rhombus is Toyota’s concept for a battery-powered electric vehicle targeted at consumers born after 1990. The EV was developed by TMEC, the company’s research and development base in China. A single swivel seat at the front replaces the typical tandem two-seat front row, while three seats in the back make up a lounge-pit-like area.

Toyota said it plans to roll out more than 10 battery electric vehicle models globally in the next five or six years, with a sales target of more than 5.5 million electrified vehicles worldwide by 2030.
