More details to come on October 25 and 26.
The FT-Se concept looks like an future EV version of the GR Supra.
Customization is key in these two concepts.
The Japanese automaker is currently preparing its appearance at the Tokyo Mobility Show, which officially opens its doors to the public on October 26. In fact, the brand’s strategists have released these four official photos from two EV concepts that will be fully revealed during the press days held on October 25 and 26.
According to Toyota, the future of mobility will go beyond physical transport to become a life partner aligned with the values of its user. The automaker plans to offer a multitude of customization options inside the cabin, but also wants consumers to take even greater advantage of this opportunity to personalize their vehicles.
For the moment, details are very limited, but we do know a little more about this all-electric utility vehicle. This crossover is reminiscent of the current Lexus RZ, with its single rear horizontal taillight and steeply raked tailgate. However, the bodywork is cut with sharp edges and a charging port is located not far from the rear light on the left fender.
Toyota also claims that its vehicle will contribute to carbon neutrality “by connecting to society as a means of transferring energy and data between the vehicle and its environment”. The designers have also integrated screens on the outside of the vehicle to provide more information on battery status, on-board temperature, or air quality, for example.
When it comes to attracting the crowds, there’s nothing like a sports car. In this case, Toyota’s more aerodynamic creation even carries the GR badge (for Gazoo Racing), suggesting a more elevated driving experience. The sports car does share a few components with the FT-3e SUV. It would not be surprising if these components were linked to the new electric platform Toyota is currently working on.
The brand has also indicated that this sports car could be updated remotely to continue evolving with its owner. One of the partial shots provided by Toyota shows at least three screens: one on the left, another on the right and the last one higher up, not far from the windscreen. What’s more, the steering wheel is of the “yoke” type.
Toyota will give full details of these two concepts at its official presentation at the Tokyo Motor Show. We’ll then know whether one or both are destined for series production.
