8. Toyota Yaris Hybrid R concept
Yes, yet another hybrid. It isn’t even the last one on this list (not even close), but it might be one of the most unusual. That’s because this is a 420 hp version of the Toyota Yaris. Normally, the only way you’d have any fun in a Yaris is if you get a thrill out of parking in unusually small spaces.
That’s still possible here, but anyone lucky enough to actually drive this concept will probably be more focused on what’s ahead. That’s because it uses not one, not two, but three electric motors along with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine to transform the pokey city car into something incredible. With an obviously race-inspired design, could Toyota’s performance cars become this decade’s “Honda?”
