Toyota Prepares Electric Land Cruiser, Has a Range of 1,000 Km

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Toyota plans to expand the Land Cruiser range by launching a pure electric version, namely the Land Cruiser SE.

Quoted from Carscoops, Sunday (4/2/2024), the Land Cruiser SE is expected to have larger dimensions and be more focused on comfort than the Land Cruiser J250 series (Prado) which will be present in North America.

This electric Land Cruiser is rumored to be equipped with advanced technology, such as Toyota prismatic cells. This technology promises cheaper production costs and more energy than current battery technology.

Even though it will not focus on the Land Cruiser Prado off-road vehicle, Toyota ensures that the Land Cruiser SE can provide good handling when crossing paths. The large torque produced by the electric motor is said to be able to make the car climb hills or extreme roads.

Not only the Land Cruiser SE, Toyota is also preparing a more compact model, which is based on the Compact Cruiser EV concept.

The model is expected to be similar in size to the bZ4X, and will compete with cars in the compact SUV segment such as the Land Rover Defender and small G-Class.
