Toyota’s Electric Sports Car Concept
The Toyota Motor Corporation is developing an electric sports car, dubbed the Toyota Sports EV. The EV is expected to have a two-second 0-60 mph acceleration time and a cruising range of over 400 miles. The company is tight-lipped about the details of this vehicle, but it may be a sensible successor to the Lexus LFA. It may also have input from Gazoo Racing. Until then, we can only speculate about the vehicle’s future.
The new Piech GT is set to debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, though the launch of the car was delayed due to the pandemic. It will feature a single front electric motor and two electric motors at the rear for a total power output of 603 hp. The car will be able to reach 62 mph in less than three seconds and can hit 100 km/h in nine seconds. The Model S Plaid seats five people comfortably.
The concept car is a bit bigger than the S-FR concept, but the angular shape suggests it’ll be quicker than its predecessor. It may even look like an electric MR2 revival. Toyota has proven its ability to create fun, fast cars in recent years, so this concept vehicle may be a preview of the future. When Toyota produces its first production-ready electric car, it will be marketed under the Toyota brand.
The mass-market automobile industry has adopted electrification in large numbers, so it’s not hard to imagine a new electric sports car. In fact, some of the most thrilling electric sports cars have a gasoline/electric hybrid powertrain. But that’s not the only benefit. The future of the automobile depends on electric vehicles. The electric sports car could be the ultimate value of the automobile industry in 2022. Its price will likely be the lowest for years to come.
The E-Sports platform was created under Project LEVA, and was designed to keep the dynamic attributes of the Lotus. The lightweight platform is also expected to be 37% lighter than the Emira, allowing it to use rear-wheel-drive technology. The electric sports car is expected to hit the road sometime in the second half of this decade. Regardless of its final design, this revolutionary concept is the future of the electric sports car.
The Lexus sports car has a name, but we don’t know what it will look like. Its body features classic sports car proportions, such as a long nose, short rear deck, and fastback roofline. The exterior design also hints at the Lexus LFA and McLaren. It doesn’t have a conventional grille, and it is unlikely to offer a range of 400 miles. The battery is likely to be under the load floor, with a skateboard-like platform for driving.
The Lexus Electrified Sport has been spotted in a few different locations, but a lot of speculation is circling the web about its future. While it is not a production model, it is a concept car that could compete with the Audi E-Tron GT and the Lucid Air. The company plans to switch Lexus to BEVs sooner than its main brand, while keeping the emphasis on affordability and performance. The Lexus BEV Sport is currently exclusive to Europe and features a large warranty.
