Back in 2004, the Japanese brand introduced the amazing concept of a sports coupe to the whole world. The car had four-wheel drive, a hybrid motor for 400 “horses” and three seats.

As part of the Geneva Motor Show, which was held back in 2004, the Japanese brand Toyota introduced an amazing concept of the new model – the car was named Alessandro Volta. A rather stylish sports coupe could boast of having all-wheel drive and over 400 horsepower under the hood. Also there were three seats.

The guys from the Japanese company decided to name their next concept in honor of Alessandro Giuseppe Antonio Anastasio Volta. The car received the following characteristics: a 3.3-liter V6 gasoline engine and two electric motors, which in general gave a total power of 402 horsepower.

Also, the coupe had a four-wheel drive, carbon chassis – in particular, thanks to the wide use of this material, the total weight was 1,250 kg. The length of the Toyota Alessandro Volta took 4 358 mm, width – 1 925 mm, height – 1 140 mm, and it spent only 4 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, the maximum speed was electronically limited to 250 km / h .

Designed by Italdesign Giugiaro and named after the inventor of the electric battery, Alessandro Volta was a sports coupe with butterfly doors and a design that still looks stylish 15 years after its debut.

The car also received a 3-seater cabin with a completely flat floor – any passenger could become a driver, because the steering wheel and pedals slid from left to right. It is worth noting that the car was designed with a pusher suspension on both axles and is equipped with a battery that weighed 70 kg.
