Toyota is taking us on a cosmic ride like no other! Introducing the Toyota Baby Lunar Cruiser, a concept electric SUV that’s not just inspired by the legendary FJ40 Land Cruiser but also by the real Lunar Cruiser being cooked up by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Toyota themselves.
Now, when we say “baby,” we’re not talking about size here; we’re talking about a whole new breed of electric SUV that’s ready to conquer the moon’s rugged terrain and then some. CALTY Design Research, Toyota’s cutting-edge design hub on the sunny West Coast, is celebrating half a century of design excellence, and they’re doing it in style by unveiling this space-age wonder.
This Baby Lunar Cruiser is no ordinary set of wheels. It’s packing some serious tech under the hood, and by hood, we mean the sleek glass canopy that protrudes over the driver’s head, giving you an unparalleled view of the lunar landscape. And speaking of views, feast your eyes on the panoramic dashboard display powered by augmented reality – it’s like having the moon’s surface right in front of you!
But that’s not all, folks. Up front, the iconic TOYOTA script graces the grille, and it’s not just for show. The Baby Lunar Cruiser comes equipped with a fleet of cameras and sensors that scan and monitor the moon’s terrain, ensuring you navigate that rocky landscape like a lunar boss.
Now, I know what you’re thinking – “Is this thing even real?” Well, it’s a concept for now, but boy, does it give us a glimpse into the future of SUVs! That split tailgate at the back, perfect for moon driving, and those adjustable spaceframe seats and panels that let you configure the interior for any off- or on-land adventure you can dream up.
CALTY Design Research isn’t slowing down anytime soon. They’ve given us iconic rides like the ’78 Celica and the 2024 Tacoma, and with this Baby Lunar Cruiser, they’re telling us they’ve got a whole galaxy of mind-blowing concepts in the pipeline. Whether you’re tearing up Earth’s terrain or exploring the moon’s craters, the Baby Lunar Cruiser is a testament to Toyota’s commitment to blending cutting-edge tech with heritage design cues. It’s a lunar love affair that’s out of this world! So, keep your eyes on the stars and stay tuned for more incredible designs from the Toyota crew at CALTY. The future is looking bright, or should we say, moonlit!
