Toyota To Build Car From Seaweed

Seaweed Car

Toyota is laying out its green vision of the future with dreams of an ultralight, superefficient plug-in hybrid with a biopplastic body made of seaweed. The kelp car would build upon the already hypergreen 1/X plug-in hybrid concept, which weighs 926 pounds, by replacing its carbon-fiber body with plastic derived from seaweed. As for the collision safety the car will use lightweight carbon-fiber reinforced plastic throughout the body and frame made from oil. Let’s just hope the car will come into production in near future!
