Toyota to Launch Electric SUV in India from 2021-22
Toyota to Launch 6 EVs in Next 5 years - Check Latest Updates
Electrification is not the future but it is happening very much now and every car-maker has to be a part of this or lose out. Toyota would be launching not one but 6 EVs within the next 5 years and the first of them will start coming in from next year. Built on the modular e-TNGA platform - a platform similar to the TNGA platform which the car-maker uses for its petrol/hybrid cars.
According to the platform will have either an electric motor at the front or rear or both for all-wheel drive. The platform is also flexible enough to be used for a variety of differently sized cars with long-wheelbase or short. Now, most of these models are built for markets like the US, Europe, and China. Toyota has laid out plans to go electric in a big way and will aim to promote battery-electric cars.
Amongst the promised line-up there would be crossover and SUVs along with sedans too. Of interest to India could be a new Kona sized rival which would be coming as a part of this plan.
From the image shared we can see the radical design language and the main products would be two SUVs with one being the Kona rivaling EV crossover. We expect high levels of range and also futuristic interior/detailing when all these new products are properly revealed. For India, since EVs are slowly increasing in demand, Toyota can think of launching the Kona sized SUV as a CBU import.
For India, there is also a compact SUV that it is developing with Suzuki having this new EV platform and it would be a mass-market EV with an expected realistic range and pricing. This could be the first EV being produced by Toyota and Suzuki in India? We hope so. Toyota in India recently launched the Urban Cruiser SUV and new Innova Crysta.
