– Toyota also showcased the IMV0 concept
– Simultaneously working on the Hilux H2 prototype
Toyota has unveiled an all-new electric Hilux pickup truck. The Japanese automaker showcased the Hilux Revo BEV concept at an event in Thailand to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Although the design of the electric pickup has been previewed by the Concept EV, no technical information has been released yet.
In terms of exterior design, the Hilux Revo BEV Concept features a closed grille with a slatted design element, a charging port on the passenger side of the front quarter panel, a new set of alloys, new LED headlamps with LED DRLs and trapezoidal fogs. Behind the lamp housing, the concept pickup gets vertically mounted LED taillamps and a flat tailgate.
Speaking at the event, Toyota Motor Corporation President Akio Toyoda said, “I think BEVs will take longer to become mainstream than the media would have us believe. And to be fair, BEVs aren’t the only way to achieve the world’s carbon neutrality goals. Personally, I would rather pursue alternatives like emission-free synthetic fuels and hydrogen, not just one.”
