The Toyota Innova EV concept seems to be based on existing second-generation MPVs with external and internal modifications.
To the surprise of many, the BEV concept of the hugely popular second-generation Innova was leaked just before its debut at the Indonesia International Auto Show in Jakarta. More interestingly, the concept is already in its near-production phase, which suggests that the Japanese manufacturer may consider launching an electric MPV in the near future.
The Toyota Innova EV Concept has an unambiguous MPV design with a slightly sloping roof line that complements the large greenhouse and looks like a racked windshield ICE model on the front. On the front, it has a shut-off front grille with a hexagonal frame that sits in the middle of a sharp-looking LED headlamp with integrated LED daytime running lights.
The redesigned front bumper comes with a vertically positioned fog lamp housing and the side profile is similar to that of its ICE siblings. The concept is based on the existing Innova, at least on the design front while the brand has been working on the third generation for some time now and is expected to make its global debut later this year before early 2023 sales in many Asian markets. Including India.
To emphasize the alloy wheel design is quite basic to look at and its eco-friendly nature, blue graphics can be seen initially on the side. It boasts electric and EV badges, including the Innova EV decal, just behind the quarter panel. The rear has a wrapped LED tail lamp, a steep boot structure like the IC-engineed version, and the charging port is located on the left rear.
The interior has a familiar look to the ICE Innova Christa with a centrally located touchscreen infotainment system, a three-spoke steering wheel with mounted control, a semi-digital instrument cluster with a large MID showing range information, adjustable headrests . , Etc.
The underpinning and drivetrain performance and details are not yet known and we will keep the post updated after its worldwide debut.
