Supercar Blondie’s Sergi Galiano visited the 2021 LA Auto Show and picked up a few of the craziest car concepts out there. One was a pretty cool solar-paneled pickup truck and another one was a... toilet car. For real.
There’s nothing more fun than checking out new cars, that are unveiled just for this occasion. So Sergi Galiano went right to work and visited the 2021 LA Auto Show. His video shows some peculiar models that you don’t see every day.
In fact, this Toilet Car is not going to be honking at you in the street because it’s not road legal, but it actually works. It includes an actual toilet as the driver’s seat, and it’s covered by wacky cream-colored fabric. You have golf cart-style pedals, and the headrest for the back seats are showerheads. Oh, yes, let’s not forget the backseats, which are actually French bathtubs. Whoever came up with that really focused on all the details. Galiano jokes: “If this breaks down, you get like a mechanic or a plumber?” My question exactly.
He also showed a Toyota Rhombus, where the only seat in the front is the driver’s seat. Which actually rotates so you can have a conversation with the people in the back, offering “abstract seating space,” as Galiano calls it. Hopefully someone won't strike a conversation while driving, though.
Here’s where it gets interesting – the Edison Future Electric Truck called EF1-T, which some compared to Tesla’s Cybertruck. Solar power-assisted, the truck really looks like it comes from the future. There is a solar mosaic right behind the windshield. There are camera side-view mirrors and flush door handles. Scheduled to make its debut in 2025, it comes with one, two, or three motors. The most powerful version will get 810 horsepower and the figures of a supercar: it will only take 3.9 seconds to run from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph).
Among the other vehicles shown in the video are the Kia EV9 concept and the Solo EV by Electra Mecanica, previewing an electric future and being unique in their own way. Except you really wouldn't want to be seen driving a toilet car.
