Toyota's first electric car teased: X Prologue SUV

Toyota has released a shadowy image of its first ever pure electric car.

Despite being the world's biggest car maker and a global leader in hybrid technology, Toyota is yet to join the electric car boom.

Toyota's first electric car – an SUV – is due to be unveiled next week.

Plans for a possible introduction in Australia are yet to be announced, however if history is a guide our market is usually not among the first to get Toyota's most advanced vehicles.

Dubbed the X Prologue, the RAV4-sized electric SUV will be based on Toyota's e-TNGA platform (Toyota New Global Architecture), with the ability to offer front, rear, or all-wheel drive.


While yet to be confirmed, patent filings uncovered in late 2020 suggest Toyota's new range of fully-electric SUVs will use a range of 'BZ' model names when the vehicles enter production.

It's believed the e-TNGA platform – which was co-developed with Subaru – will spawn a new zero-emissions line-up from Toyota, Subaru, and Lexus, with all three brands announcing plans to reveal models in the first half of 2021.

"Toyota will shortly take the next step in the rollout of its forthcoming battery-electric portfolio by first previewing an all-new mid-sized SUV in the coming months," a spokesperson for Toyota said back in early December 2020.

"The versatility and flexibility of e-TNGA technology allows us to design and create vehicles that are not just battery-electric, but also exciting to drive and beautiful to look at."
