Toyota unveils the "car of the future" which is pretty similar to the Elio which is expected to be built in the old GM plant in Shreveport.

Shreveport leaders have worked hard to lure Paul Elio to town by leasing part of the plant to the company. The 3-wheeled Elio Car gets more than 80 miles per gallon. The company is already taking pre-orders for the car. You pay $100 to get on the waiting list.

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Toyota has unveiled what they claim will be the "Car for the Connected Future". It's the "TOYOTA FV2".

The car has the latest technology in IT which helps build a more natural relationship between people and their cars. The Toyota news releases says the FV2 car is "designed around Intuitive Connections, you Control the FV2 with your body's motions, and the vehicle reacts to your emotions as well."
