Toyota Does a Honda Ridgeline?

Toyota just took the wraps of it's concept Hybrid Pick-up truck - The A-BAT . It almost looks like a compressed Honda Ridgeline.

Apart from being hybrid, the features I like are the fact that it will feature a "expandable" truck bed that can be increased from 4 feet to 6, by lowering the midgate or a full 8 feet when both the midgate and tailgate are lowered. It will apparently also have solar panels on the dashboard.

People have expressed mixed opinions about the design, but I, for one think it is cool or futuristic. Heck, I'll even go so far as to say, that this is one of my main choices for a pick-up, if I ever decide to get one!
