Toyota dropped the teaser of teasers this morning in the form of a logo and a two sentence press release announcing the debut of a "battery electric vehicle concept" that will bow at the Detroit Auto Show in less than three weeks. The EV will join the 2010 Toyota Prius on the show stand, but as you can see in the release, there's no word on what kind of batteries the concept will be using, what sheetmetal it will wear or what direction Toyota hopes to take with this new EV. Speculation begins below in the comments.

TORRANCE, Calif., Dec. 22 -- Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. will display a battery electric vehicle concept at the 2009 North American International Auto Show. This display marks the world debut of this concept vehicle.
