Two New Toyota Hybrid Models to be Unveiled on May 18th

We’re thinking Sienna and Tundra.


  • Two new Toyota hybrid models to be unveiled next week.
  • Toyota Sienna and Toyota Tundra among candidates likely to get hybrid powertrains.

The 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid and Prius are just arriving in dealerships, and soon, two new Toyota hybrid models will join them, as the company has announced their reveal on May 18th during the Toyota 2020 Product Showcase event.

Toyota and Lexus Upcoming Roadmap Leaked

These two models have not been named, but we think we have an idea what they will be. As we discussed back in March, the Toyota and Lexus future product roadmap was leaked over the web, and there is some information in there that hints at what we’ll be seeing next week.

A thoroughly redesigned Toyota Sienna should make its debut and hit the market for the 2021 model year, and rumour has it that it will be available with a hybrid powertrain, ready to challenge the Chrysler Pacifica, which was the only minivan on our market to offer a gas-electric option. However, the Sienna might combine an all-wheel drivetrain with hybrid propulsion, which the Chrysler does not have.

The second model we think will be unveiled is the 2021 Toyota Tundra full-size pickup truck, another of the brand’s products that was long overdue for a redesign. The new Tundra should gain a twin-turbocharged V6 engine that includes hybrid electric assist, although output has obviously yet to be disclosed.

Well, we could be wrong. After all, there are many other new Toyota models to come, such as a Corolla crossover for the 2021MY, a second-generation Toyota Venza as well as new generations of the Toyota 4Runner and a Toyota Sequoia. On the luxury-brand side of things, a redesigned 2021 Lexus IS should soon appear, as are new generations of the Lexus NX and LX.

Toyota introduced the Prius to the North American market 20 years ago, and since 1997, it has sold more than 15 million hybrid vehicles worldwide—including 200,000 of them in Canada. We’re anxious to see what the Japanese automaker has up its sleeve for next week’s unveil.
