What To Expect

Late in 2022, Toyota unveiled a lineup of upcoming battery-electric concept models. Toyota’s goal is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030, so to that end, Toyota intends to push 30 new EVs across all segments globally. It’s unclear when or if all unveiled EVs will make it to production. This model is the Toyota Sports EV and we suspect it will be a 2024 model.

A similar-looking concept, which seems much closer to a production model, dubbed the FT-Se was recently shown at the 2023 Tokyo Auto Show in October. This model may be the vehicle that came from the original Sports EV concept, but we don't have any confirmation.

2024 Toyota Sports EV Engine & Specs

A 2-seater with side vents, mid-engine proportions, and a likely hardtop, the Toyota Sports EV looks like it may be based on the long-discontinued Toyota MR2. Many have speculated that this may be Toyota’s way of bringing back the MR2 but with an electric powertrain and 21st-century styling. This will be an all-electric model, which may ride on an all-new compact battery architecture, according to Car and Driver.

2024 Toyota Sports EV Safety

We're not sure what to expect in terms of safety for this electric sports car. Safety features will certainly be a unique consideration with the combination of sports car styling and performance, along with the technology of an EV. We expect the standard rear-view camera, auto high beams, and automatic emergency braking at the very least.

2024 Toyota Sports EV Price

Pricing for the Toyota Sports EV is unknown at this time. While affordability is Toyota’s top priority right now, this does appear to be a 2-passenger sports car built for driving enjoyment and could carry a hefty price tag when it goes on sale.

2024 Toyota Sports EV Release Date

The release date info for the Toyota Sports EV has not yet been announced. If it does make it into production, we expect that it’ll come later than most of the unveiled Toyota EVs due to the nature of it being in more of a niche market. Perhaps it will launch alongside the Lexus EV Sports Car, also introduced at the same time in December 2022.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
