We have some electrifying news from the land of the rising sun. Toyota is about to unleash a spectacle at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show, and leading the charge is their jaw-dropping concept – the all-electric Land Cruiser “Se.” Now, this is no ordinary SUV; it’s either a heavy-hitter in the three-row EV battle royale, or it’s a sneak peek into the future – a tantalizing tease of what’s to come.The Land Cruiser “Se” boasts a design that can only be described as angular boat-like magnificence. With its lengthy hood, sweeping windshield, and a rear end that rocks a visor taillight setup, this seven-seater beast is nothing short of a visual spectacle. But let’s not forget the numbers: a 120.08-inch wheelbase, a body that stretches to 202.76 inches in length, a width of 78.35 inches, and a height that peaks at 67.13 inches. It’s got a broader stance and sits lower than the 2024 gas-guzzling Land Cruiser, thanks to an extended wheelbase that might just be housing a battery.
Now, Toyota didn’t just stop at aesthetics. The “Se” seems like it’s been sculpted to slice through the air like a ninja with its digital side-view mirror cameras and an obsession with aerodynamics. Toyota even gushes about the serene hush of an EV, creating a cozy cabin experience, especially in the urban jungle. It’s as if they’ve just discovered the magic of quiet EVs for the first time!
But wait, there’s more! This Land Cruiser “Se” isn’t just a pretty face. It’s also a beast off the beaten path, giving a nod to its rugged gas-guzzling ancestor. So, for all you die-hard off-road enthusiasts, don’t be fooled by its Uber XL exterior.
But that’s not all, folks. Toyota is playing the concept game hard, and they’ve got another ace up their sleeve – the EPU, a midsize electric pickup truck that’s tailor-made for outdoor adventures. It’s got a cabin that can open up to the deck, making it a dream come true for nature lovers. With its 199.61-inch length and 75.2-inch width, it’s leaner than a Rivian R1T, a pickup you can actually buy.
And if that’s not enough to get your adrenaline pumping, Toyota’s also introducing some futuristic personal transport options. The “Land Hopper,” a foldable electric trike, boasts leaning front wheels for nimble cornering. Then there’s the “Juu” wheelchair that’s ready to tackle stairs like a boss. And for those with interstellar ambitions, Toyota’s Space mobility prototype promises to traverse alien landscapes. It’s a two-seater space ATV that’s destined for their Lunar Cruiser, a ride for the cosmic frontier.
But here’s the pièce de résistance – the Neo Steer cockpit concept. Inspired by motorcycles, it’s Toyota’s way of reigniting the love affair with cars. Levers for acceleration and braking, a touch of nostalgia for the good ol’ days of manual transmissions, all wrapped up in an electrifying package.
So, there you have it. Toyota’s electric Land Cruiser is more than just a tantalizing dream. It’s their way of joining the electric family SUV party, and in a segment where competition is fierce, they’ll need to deliver the goods. The eyes of the automotive world are upon them, especially with contenders like Hyundai’s EV9 in the mix.
