In the race to be the greenest auto manufacturer, Toyota has added a new weapon to its arsenal. Say hello to the Toyota of the future, a car made completely from seaweed. Well, to be more precise, from bio plastics made from seaweed, but close enough.

Toyota is planning on releasing the car in 2015 and hopes this will truly create a sustainable vehicle. Toyota will unveil this next step in green design, called the 1/xth, at the Melbourne Auto Show On Saturday February 28th. This use of bio plastics could be the next step to a truly carbon zero automobile. Stats for Kelp Cars Trending: Older & Mild
