Toyota plans to launch electric vehicle, reveals electric version of Hilux pickup truck

Toyota recently revealed the electric version of its popular Hilux pickup truck. The company showcased it during its 60th anniversary celebrations in the Southeast Asian country.

The Hilux Revo’s BEV concept has been developed using the same engine as the current generation Hilux pickup truck. However, no technical information has been disclosed yet.

Due to the electric vehicle, a number of styling changes have been made to the Hilux Revo BEV concept, which makes the concept stand out. The most prominent changes include a closed-off front grille and a charging port on the passenger side of the front quarter panel. The headlamp remains the same as the ICE-equipped variant of the pickup truck.

These get LED units and LED daytime running lights. It also gets a black colored fog lamp cluster and large alloy wheels. The automaker has revealed that some development of the electric Hilux was done in Thailand. But, he has not yet given any information about the production or launch plan of this EV.

However, the Japanese car brand insists it is committed to reducing carbon emissions with a range of hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery-electric and hydrogen fueled vehicles. Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda said at the event that BEVs are not the only way to achieve global carbon neutrality goals.

He also said that in order to achieve carbon neutrality, it must be remembered that carbon emissions are our enemy and not an engine. We are building a portfolio of carbon-reducing options for our customers from hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles, battery electric cars and fuel cell vehicles.

Also, we are pursuing hydrogen fuel alternatives like these GR. Yaris and GR-Corolla are concept cars running on hydrogen. As we work to achieve a sustainable future, I also believe we need to take a holistic approach to carbon neutrality.

Interestingly, Toyota has launched the Hilux pickup truck in India. The automaker is mulling over plans to bring electric vehicles to India in the near future. It will be interesting to see if the carmaker brings the electric version of the pickup here or not.
