Rhombus Concept, a chubby diamond shaped EV

Back again to the Japanese automotive giant, Toyota. To participate at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show, the company brought several it's hybrid and fully electric vehicles. One of which is the Toyota Rhombus concept car.

From its external appearance, the Toyota Rhombus has a futuristic look with hard-line strokes and chubby front. And inside, you can see a single swivel seat in front replacing the typical two-seat in driver's row such in common cars, while the two seats in the back form a lounge-like area.

Because in the front, there is only room for the driver to take a position in the middle of the vehicle. Then, there is room for up to three other passengers in the back, where they sit in the style of a rickshaw or diamond shape - hence the name.

At first glance, this electric car will look like a good taxi. However, the lack of a back door makes the entrance a little uncomfortable.

Right when the futuristic electric car was launched, of course, Toyota hasn't announced it yet. This is a concept for now but will come to Europe as early as 2021. Electric manufacturing cars, which nearly 13 million were sold in the last two decades, will then reach our continent.
Toyota is planning to add 10 electric vehicles globally in the next 5-6 years which is good news for the environment. The mega car manufacturer is set towards the goal of 5.5 million EV sales by 2030. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TOYOTA | ANDROIDPIT | CNBC]
