Toyota Share First Glimpse Of Its Upcoming Electric Pickup

At an event in Japan on Tuesday, Toyota once again talked about its grand plans for battery-powered cars. AKIO TOYODA, global president of Toyota Motor Corporation, said the company plans to offer 30 electric vehicles in all segments across its Lexus and Toyota brands by 2030.
At that time, Toyota plans to sell 3.5 million electric cars a year; to reach this goal, the company will invest roughly $70 billion in electrified vehicles worldwide.

Toyota supported these plans by displaying a room full of electric and hybrid concept cars. The one spotted by Electrek is an unceremoniously tucked away electric pickup truck. The Toyota didn’t reveal any details about this vehicle, but it looks to be a direct competitor to Rivian’s R1T and Ford’s upcoming F150 Lightning, and with Toyota’s expertise in making great pickups, it could be an interesting vehicle.

When the car is expected to hit the market, it probably won’t happen anytime soon. In spite of its early dominance in hybrid vehicles, Toyota only offers one electric vehicle for pre-order, the Toyota bZ4X, a futuristic SUV coming next year. According to a recent report, the company also plans to launch an affordable electric car in China by 2022.

Toyota brought a number of interesting concepts to the show, including a compact cruiser and a massive SUV
