In a one sentence press release issued yesterday, Toyota said it will show a small electric vehicle concept next month at the North American International Auto Show.
Details are sparse at the moment, but Automotive News speculates that the company will reveal a battery-powered iQ-sized city car. The iQ has been shown at several international auto shows this year.
Thanks to Toyota, Detroit is looking greener than usual this winter. In addition to this newly announced small electric car, Toyota is expected to reveal a new Lexus hybrid, which is likely to have the same powertrain as the next-generation Prius. The 2010 Toyota Prius is also scheduled to make its debut at the 2009 NAIAS.
