The new CAFE standards are causing every automaker to rethink what vehicles will populate their lineups come 2020. Toyota's plan could include a production version of the A-BAT concept pickup that was shown in Detroit and possibly some version of the Urban Cruiser that's about to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

Both models have the potential of lowering Toyota's emissions rating while simultaneously offering consumers the smaller vehicles they might crave in the future. Some version of the A-BAT seems plausible, considering the hole left by other automakers for a purposeful light-duty truck. The Urban Cruiser, essentially a lifted Scion xD, seems like a bit of a stretch, but it could be a microscopic niche that other automakers have yet to exploit.
