Above is a video all about the A-BAT, Toyota's hybrid concept truck, that will premiere at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show. The video does not show the A-BAT driving around but it's still a nice look at the concept that just might be the star of the Detroit Auto Show. Some have said the truck is ugly and I have to agree; other Toyota concept trucks and other mini-trucks look a little better.

Below the fold is a video about BMW X6 Active Hybrid which appeared at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show and should also be at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show. The video includes an animation of the hybrid system in action and BMW saying even though it's a hybrid, the X6 will still drive like a "typical" BMW.
