Toyota has been known for its adventurous and powerful vehicles, and the famous Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 is no exception. After the success of this model, Toyota is now looking to launch a new small SUV that pays homage to the FJ40. The upcoming 2024 Toyota Compact Cruiser EV is expected to be built on the e-TNGA platform and share its electric powertrain with other electric vehicle prototypes that Toyota will be presenting soon. Let's take a closer look at what we know about this new model so far.The Compact Cruiser EV will feature a striking Toyota brand on the grille, flanked by round headlights with horizontal turn signals on the outside.
It is also inspired by the first-generation Toyota Land Cruiser, although it appears to be much smaller. The vehicle will offer customers the choice between a single 150 kW electric motor that produces 201 horsepower or two 80 kW motors, increasing power to 215 horsepower. Although Toyota may not recover the exact name of the FJ Cruiser model in the near future, brand executives have strongly implied that a new small SUV oriented to the off-road will appear in the coming years. If you end up buying one, rest assured that Toyota is still providing FJ Cruiser service at its Toyota service centers.
Toyota has made some incredible off-road SUVs over the years, including the Land Cruiser, the 4Runner and the FJ Cruiser. With the upcoming Compact Cruiser EV, it looks like they are set to continue this legacy of powerful and adventurous vehicles. We can't wait to see what this new model has in store for us!.
