New Toyota Sport Crossover concept preview sleek EV for 2025

► New Sport Crossover Concept revealed
► Slick and sporty new four-door
► Production model will launch in 2025

Toyota’s range of electric cars will grow to include a sleek four-door, as previewed by this: the Sport Crossover Concept.

The Sport Crossover Concept shows an all-new model that doesn’t really seem to share much of a look with many other Toyota models in its range, with brand executives confirming that it won’t remain a concept. In fact, Toyota Europe’s vice president, Andrea Carlucci, confirmed that a model based on the Sport Crossover concept will launch in 2025.

Interestingly, despite having the word ‘crossover’ in the car’s title, there’s barely any SUV-ish-ness (let’s make that a word, shall we?) to the car’s design at all. The roofline is low, the car’s front and rear overhangs are pronounced and the wheelarches almost wrap around the large wheels beneath. It still looks like a futuristic Toyota, too, with the brand’s clean new headlight design (which is also seen on the latest Prius) sitting pride of place. Carlucci says it himself, the car is ‘much more coupe-ish design or, even better, a sort of fastback.’

‘We believe the market is not just the SUV,’ says Carlucci. ‘We want to offer the right solutions for any kind of customer – this can be the right solution for the customer who is specifically looking for something that is stylish.’

Toyota plans to introduce six electric cars by 2026 for the European market, with one of them being the bZ4x, another being the production version of the Compact SUV Concept. Carlucci says he wants the Sport Crossover concept to ‘be kind of like an icon within these six dedicated BEVs.’ And Toyota Europe’s CEO and President, Yoshihiro Nakata, agrees. He says the Sport Crossover Concept is ‘the perfect style hero for our BEV portfolio.’

Officially, the production version of the Sport Crossover Concept is designed to above the bZ4X in the range. Given Toyota’s electric car nomenclature, it could mean that the production model could be called bZ5, or bZ6. We’ll have to stay tuned for more info.
