Toyota Compact Cruiser EV concept: more pictures...






As I mentioned earlier, this needs to be produced ASAP. This is exactly what the market loves right now.

It looks a bit smaller than the Bronco Sport on these photos but is probably at least as roomy since based on the EV platform. Plenty of style and that off-road look could mean a big hit. 

Toyota did show a lot of stuff yesterday. But none of it is production-ready. And they can still decide not to produce some of them. But let's hope this little guy comes through...

Will car makers stop creating godd*mn huge c-pillar blindspots! Even on concepts! Not everyone wants cameras in place of eyeballs. Sheesh. That and f*cking tinted windows on every SUV/crossover sh*t the public only buys.

I'll believe in MASSIVE trouble with their production. I've been waiting for a RAV4 Prime for over 6 months with no end in sight. It would be another year or two before they can deliver it. Maybe I should just will it to my grandchildren when it finally arrives? I will believe Toyota when I actually start seeing EV's in their showrooms. As it stands, their issues need to be dealt with IMMEDIATELY before they should be offering vaporware to the masses.

Why?

They know their market a lot better than us.

Strange. It's a mess style wise. I don't think it would sell well unless it's very inexpensive.

Hopefully, Toyota will keep much of the design when it goes into production. As the first commenter mentioned, the C pillar needs to be addressed with perhaps more glass. The white rims look kind of goofy despite the Defender offering them on their low-end models. To me, it looks like a Hasbro product. VW is or was going to build a similar rugged EV but the information is hard to come by. This model should definitely make Toyota plenty of cash if they go through with it. The FT-4x before it was a letdown when it didn't get produced.

This compact SUV must be produced with traditional internal combustion engine and manual transmission. No sane individual is going to go TRUE off-roading in electric vehicle - simply due to electric vehicle range limitations.
Gasoline/diesel engine + manual transmission, just like the first generation of FJ.
