Why it's green: Hybrid.

Why it's cool: Mildly retro, boxy styling.

The Toyota FT-CH Concept shows what a smaller, less-expensive hybrid positioned below the Toyota Prius might look like. It was designed at a Toyota studio in Nice, France, to appeal to what's called the "8-bit Generation." That refers to what are now classic video-game systems from the 1980s like Nintendo that were made possible by more powerful 8-bit microprocessors. By the middle of this decade, Toyota says it will have an entire range of hybrids, plug-in hybrids and battery-only electric cars, plus even fuel-cell vehicles that run on hydrogen. The Toyota FT-CH is a step in that direction.
