Toyota has recently unveiled the Toyota Sport Crossover Concept, a new electric vehicle expected to join Toyota’s electric vehicle (EV) range by 2025. This concept car was showcased at the carmaker’s annual Kenshiki Forum in Brussels, along with other new concept models, including an Urban SUV Concept and the Toyota FT-Se sports car.
The Sport Crossover Concept stands out with its sleek, aerodynamic shape and distinctive fastback lines, making it a notable addition to Toyota’s lineup of dedicated battery electric vehicles (BEVs). It was initially presented at Auto Shanghai in April of this year and has been developed for both the Chinese and European markets by BYD Toyota EV Technology Co. Ltd. (BTET), a joint venture established in China by Toyota and BYD.
In terms of Toyota’s broader strategy, they plan to introduce six dedicated BEV models in Europe by 2026. This diverse portfolio of electrified products is part of Toyota Motor Europe’s ambition to exclusively offer Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) by 2035 and achieve complete carbon neutrality by 2040.
Interior hasn’t been revealed at the moment, but it should look like the rendering presented at the Auto Shanghai concept, which has a minimalistic cabin with curved displays and a yoke-style steering wheel.The car is just 1,200mm high, but wide at 1,895mm with a total length of 4,380mm, all sitting on a 2,650mm wheelbase. Using Toyota’s latest Performance lithium ion battery tech, it’s expected to have a range of nearly 500 miles.
The Sport Crossover Concept, with its focus on maximum comfort and a new style, plays a significant role in this strategy, previewing a new production battery electric model tailored for the European market.
