Toyota and Lexus Media Briefing on Battery EV Car SUV Sports Car

Head of Toyota Akio Toyoda took the stage to preview no fewer than 15 EVs spanning across most segments of the market, including sports cars wearing both Toyota and Lexus badges.

The conference continued with a preview of the Lexus RZ, a posh alternative to the Toyota bZ4X, before moving onto something far more exciting – a sports car. The low-slung coupe with a dramatically sloped roofline has two seats and is being developed with solid-state batteries in mind. The swoop EV aims to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in the low two-second range and provide enough battery juice for 435 miles (700 kilometers) of range.

Toyota went as far as to preview a fully electric truck sending out Tacoma vibes, joined by what we believe is an FJ Cruiser for the EV era. After all, it even has the same blue shade as the boxy off-roader, not to mention the fact it’s called the “Compact Cruiser EV.” The conference continued with brief glimpses of the Small SU EV, the Crossover EV, and a hugely promising two-seater electric sports car with a removable targa top.
