Toyota jumping on the 100% EV bandwagon at 2009 Detroit show

Can't have BWM's electric Mini and Mitsubishi's electric i MiEV stealing the spotlight all the time, now can they? (Not to mention GM's Volt.)

So apparently Toyota will be showing a 100% EV concept at the Detroit auto show in a few weeks.

Not their first EV, of course. They have real world experience building/leasing/crushing and selling and RAV-4 EV's in the mid-90's.

If it weren't for the current economic climate, I wonder if they'll roll out an EV "lease only" evaluation/greenwashing program...
