Biggest car company of the Earth finally arrived to hybrid sport car market. Volta. Volta is amazing looking Japanese hybrid supercar. And certainly can deliver excitement with 0 -100 km/h in only 4 seconds.

Bit of the help for when you get low on electric charge. hybrid system is almost the same configuration, already tested in Lexus RX 400.

Volta is not very creative name, considering we can currently witness GM’s Volt entering the market of electric cars. But let’s give a few more years to Toyota’s product management team to come up with new name. I am sure Toyota Volta won’t be in production for a few springs at least… Still great step forward. Now we anticipate what will come out from Toyot’a co-operation with Tesla. Looking forward to it…
