Until we figure out how to effectively and safely use hydrogen to power all our vehicles, hybrids are going to be the popular option for those who want to be a little more environmentally friendly with their daily commutes. Green Lite Motors agrees and the clean tech company is using Autodesk Product Design Suite to envision what a proper commuter vehicle should be. It’s not every day we here about what software the EV guys are using to come up with their creations, so its nice to see Autodesk teaming up with smaller guys out there to show what can be done.

Just because you want to have a hybrid from Toyota doesn’t mean you have to get stuck with the boring looks and performance of the Prius. Take this car, for example.

I guess today is Toyota Day. They’re already going full electric with a new EV Prototype and the hybrid thing is going bigger with the Prius+ MPV, but that’s not enough.

SAAB-PHOENIX-CONCEPT-3

Personally, I’m not a fan of Saabs. The cars just seem to lack any personality with so many of them looking more like overpriced “Saab-arus” than having their own unique character.
