- European market introduction expected in 2025
Toyota today presented its Sport Crossover Concept for the first time in Europe, previewing a new battery electric model that will join its electrified range by 2025.
Revealed at Toyota’s Kenshiki forum in Brussels, the concept displays a sleek aero silhouette and distinctive fastback lines that will make it a design icon for the company’s dedicated battery electric vehicle (BEV) line-up.
It will provide an attractive proposition for first-time electric car customers and a stylish alternative to SUVs. It offers maximum comfort combined with the practicality of five doors, a large boot and generous rear leg room.
The Sport Crossover Concept was first presented at Auto Shanghai in April this year. It has been developed for both the Chinese and European markets by BYD Toyota EV Technology Co. Ltd. (BTET) – a joint venture established in China by Toyota and BYD.
Through its multipath strategy, Toyota envisions a future in which carbon neutrality is achieved through the practical introduction of a portfolio of products with advanced, alternative fuel and zero-emissions powertrain technologies.
In Europe, Toyota plans to introduce six dedicated BEV models by 2026. A diverse portfolio of electrified products will help propel Toyota Motor Europe towards its goal of exclusively offering ZEVs by 2035 and reaching complete carbon neutrality by 2040.
