The official meeting on Toyota's 2023 financial report was held, and plans for new vehicles were announced at meeting. It is expected that 10 all-electric models will be produced. Apart from usual sedans and SUVs, there will also be a pure electric sports car. . Among new products in future, there are several categories of models that deserve attention. Two brand-new luxury electric vehicles will be launched in 2026. At first glance, these will be high-performance hunting vehicles and sports-oriented sedans. and adding three rows of SUVs as well as pure electric pickup models, these new vehicles will be based on a new platform and have ability to use solid state batteries.
The plan for a purely electric supercar has long been subject of discussion. The official did not elaborate on new car, and is not even sure if it will be Lexus or Toyota standard. Citing some As reported by Japanese media, LFA's successor could be a plug-in hybrid supercar. In many ways, this was influenced by stillborn GR Super Sport.
The GR Super Sport will be a road racing version of car, but due to cost and development complexity, current mass production plan has been put on hold. From a personal point of view, I also think that likelihood of this is not high. Although it can be done by Toyota, promotion of electric vehicle technology is now mainstream, and president's enthusiasm cannot be eaten. .
Another, more common assumption is based on a new all-electric platform equipped with at least a dual-motor electric drive system and equipped with a solid-state battery. It is expected that it will have a power reserve. more than 700km and zero Acceleration time from 100km will be within 2 seconds. In addition, a "simulated manual transmission" is expected to be installed, which currently refers to Toyota's patented technology, which will make people wonder what kind of driving experience this system will bring. I believe it will be more curious than absolute performance.
With strength of Toyota, it is not difficult to realize planned model. Although there is not much news about new car at this stage, as long as progress of solid state battery is satisfactory, I believe that other aspects will not be a problem. Compared to supercars, Toyota's new EV products deserve more attention, especially new luxury models Will Toyota return to top luxury car lineup?
