Toyota has committed to investing heavily in electric vehicles and says it will sell millions of EVs by 2030. One vehicle that has caught the eye is the electric pickup truck, which could be a competitor to the Tesla Cybertruck or the Ford Lightning 150.
Although considered a pioneer in electric vehicles when it launched the Prius a few years ago, Toyota is now lagging behind in the development and sales of electric cars. The seriousness of the Japanese manufacturer was only shown earlier this week when they showed off a series of electric cars that are believed to be the mainstay of sales in the next few years.
According to Carscoops, the Japanese manufacturer will launch 15 electric vehicle models by 2025. Then by 2030, the number of electric cars will increase to 30 models.
Of the dozens of cars on display, one of them has a white two-cabin electric pickup.
The physical pickup is very thick with the identity of an electric vehicle. Where the grille is made tight and accented with a horizontal geometric pattern.
This electric pickup is reminiscent of the Toyota Tacoma. Although in some parts the feel of the Toyota Tundra 2022 is also thick, including the installation of a black bumper and fog lights that are placed horizontally.
Stepping back a little, Toyota gave the A-pillar black color, and then continued the dark color to the roof.
For the tail, there are no pictures / photos shown by Toyota. However, it is believed that the taillights pick up will also adopt the Tundra lamp design.
While the shape of the tire treads on this EV pick-up looks rough, this indicates that the pick-up is ready to go on an off-road adventure.
However, Toyota did not provide detailed information about the electric pickup, both its name and specifications. So it can only be seen from the outside.
Toyota did not even provide any information about the electric pickup, whether it was just a concept, as part of research, or it was ready to be mass-produced.
However, it is predicted that the presence of this Toyota electric pickup will be a serious competitor to the Tesla Cybertruck and also the Ford F-150 Lightning. Given that the EV pickup segment is booming, Toyota also doesn’t want to miss this momentum.
So far the Tesla Cybertruck has ordered more than 1 million units since it was first introduced in 2019. Although there is no sign of when the electric pickup will enter the production stage, there are still many interested consumers.
While Ford has launched the F-150 Lightning as a challenger to the Tesla Cybetruck. The electric pickup is also selling well, ordered by consumers, which has reached 200 thousand units since it was first launched earlier this year.
