THIS IS GREEN BUT MAYBE UGLY?

This is the new Toyota Scion iQ concept car that is purported to be Toyota's answer to the SmartforTwo. It's already on sale in Japan and was shown at the recent international car show in New York City.

This version does have a back seat, however, it's more for a bag of groceries than an adult. It also has nine (9) airbags, including one in the rear window, front wheel drive and could get 65 mph. Retail price is estimated at $13,000.
There may also be an electric version out in 2012.
