A Toyota favorite has just been confirmed for launch in 2025: discover the new Hilux pickup truck that promises 200 km of autonomy and is here to annihilate the Ford Ranger

Toyota confirmed the launch of the unprecedented electric version of the Hilux, which will be produced in Thailand from 2025, as announced by Toyota's vice president in Asia, Pras Ganesh, in an interview with the Reuters news agency.

The unprecedented electric version of the Toyota Hilux pickup truck, which will begin production next year, was confirmed by Pras Ganesh, vice president of the Japanese brand in Asia, in an interview with Reuters. Production will be in Thailand, from where it can be exported to other markets, including Brazil.

The terror of the Ford Ranger!

Electric Toyota Hilux promises 200 km on a full charge

In March, Toyota had stated that the new electric Hilux would be tested in tourist areas in Thailand. The country is one of the largest global markets for pickup trucks and is home to the production of models such as Toyota Hilux, Isuzu D-Max, Ford Ranger (the Raptor version sold in Brazil is manufactured there) and Mitsubishi L200, among others.

Although there are not many specifications revealed yet about the new electric Toyota Hilux, the pickup truck is expected to have a range of around 200 km on a full charge. A concern for the brand is the total weight of the vehicle. “The greater the range, the greater the battery we need to equip in the pickup, which makes the car heavier and reduces the load capacity,” said Pras Ganesh.

There are also uncertainties about the new generation of the Toyota Hilux. Initially scheduled for 2024, the launch was postponed to 2025 or 2026 and will feature hybrid and electric versions. Therefore, it is possible that the new electric Hilux will be based on the next generation of the pickup truck.

Electric Hilux can be equipped with the engine from the Toyota BZ4x SUV

If it uses the base of the current generation, the future electric Hilux must incorporate elements of the Toyota Hilux Revo BEV concept, presented in 2022. The changes include an aerodynamic front grille in body color, as well as a battery with a capacity of up to 230 km of range.

Currently, it is speculated that the electric Hilux could be equipped with the engine from the Toyota BZ4x SUV, which offers 200 hp of power, and 4×4 traction. The launch of the new electric Toyota Hilux on the Thai market is scheduled for mid-2025. Before that, the Hilux sold in Brazil should soon receive the mild hybrid system, already available in some countries in Asia and Europe.

Finally, the Yaris Cross is registered in Brazil: the new cheapest Brazilian mini SUV in the country, has a confirmed launch and promises to annihilate Creta and Renegade

The Toyota Yaris Cross will be the brand's cheapest car in Brazil, ranking below the Corolla Cross. This mini SUV will be the brand's third vehicle to feature a hybrid-flex engine in Brazil, distinguishing itself from the Corolla line.
