The images say Land Rover as much as they do Toyota

This week at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo, Toyota will parade a new concept, the all-electric Land Cruiser Se, which points the way to the future for the iconic SUV model.

Electric-icities
The Toyota Land Cruiser Se electric concept is meant as the next step forward in the life of the SUV. Toyota says this EV offers high-torque driving as permitted by the electric format, combined with elegant and forward-looking styling. It also promises an ultra-quiet cabin as you would hop from a vehicle without an internal combustion engine under the hood.

Dimensions and capacities
No surprise, this is a big vehicle. The images don’t show that necessarily, but Toyota helpfully provided dimensions: about 5130 mm in length, 1980 mm wide and 1700 mm high. Which make this one of the biggest SUVs carrying the Toyota logo. The model is designed to fit up to seven occupants.

Design and comfort
In terms of looks, this concept is inspired in good part by Toyota’s only current BEV, the bZ4X; it also evokes the Land Rover as much as if not more than the Land Cruiser name. Its ground clearance, which appears relatively low in the images, and its large alloy wheels make it appear more suited to city centres rather than to genuine off-roading.

Rumours suggest the model could be fitted with Toyota's future batteries, promising between 1,000 and 1,500 km of range depending on configuration, which also suggests a transition towards more comfort and perhaps less off-road capability.
