The new Lexus LX 600 combines luxury features with classic off-road performance. For those who just need to own a version of the new Land Cruiser, codenamed J300, there is an option. The underlying platform houses a more luxurious all-rounder, the all-new Lexus LX 600. The Compact Cruiser EV will be a completely new model for Toyota when it launches, and will presumably have a more creative name.
We expect the electric SUV to arrive by model year 2024.It's likely that you'll share some suspension and powertrain components with other upcoming electric Toyotas, but there isn't much information yet on the mechanical components of the Compact Cruiser EV. The Toyota Compact Cruiser EV is winning awards even before it goes into production. The rugged electric vehicle adopts the original style of a land cruiser and transforms it into something totally modern and incredibly cool. The new Land Cruiser has adopted the latest Toyota Safety Sense active safety package with additional advanced features.
In terms of environmental performance, Toyota aims to reduce global CO2 emissions by approximately 10% * per year compared to the previous model, combining the newly developed Direct Shift-10AT (10-speed automatic transmission) with a lighter body weight. On the grille there is a striking Toyota brand, flanked by round headlights with horizontal turn signals on the outside. With these objectives in mind, Toyota adopted the new GA-F platform based on TNGA, while maintaining the chassis structure, which is the base that protects the essence of the Land Cruiser. With these applications in mind and in order to continue to meet customer expectations of the Land Cruiser as a vehicle that promises to take you anywhere (26%) everywhere and return alive and safe, Toyota has been advancing and evolving the Land Cruiser by establishing an increasing development and evaluation strict standards as needed, based on the actual usage situations of customers around the world.
Now that it's getting more attention, Toyota offers us more representations that show what it would look like sitting in the real world, even though for now it's still a clay model. Since Toyota plans to have a total of 30 electric vehicles on the market by 2030, it's hard not to find a place for the Compact Cruiser EV. Like a more compact and practical upgrade to the Toyota FJ Cruiser, the Compact Cruiser EV seems to be more in the spirit of the original Land Cruisers than in Toyota's latest retro experiment. However, excitement and capacity endure with adventure-ready Toyota vehicles, such as the 4Runner and the all-terrain TRD Pro Series.
Based on these improvements in features, as well as the improvements achieved through driving tests carried out by the members of the evaluation, including internal drivers with advanced or master-level technical skills and drivers who had participated in the Dakar Rally, Toyota set out to create a car that it was easy to drive and does not tire the driver easily both on and off the road. In addition, Toyota redesigned the character of the Land Cruiser by merging technologies accumulated over many years with the most recent ones, to achieve improvements such as reducing vehicle weight, reducing the center of gravity, adopting a new powertrain and new interior and exterior designs. Having achieved all these developments, Toyota plans to launch the new Land Cruiser worldwide starting this summer. Fifteen electrical concepts were exhibited there, including what looked like a Toyota Tacoma EV and new sports cars and personal mobility models.
