At the 60th anniversary of Toyota Motors Thailand (TMT), Toyota President Akio Toyoda introduced the Hilux Revo Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) concept.
The Toyota Hilux was also developed under Toyoda’s supervision as part of the IMV (Innovative International Multi-Purpose Vehicle) initiative. Similar to Pakistan, Thailand calls its more upscale Hilux models Revo.
The Hilux Revo BEV prototype, according to the manufacturer, is meant to represent the pick-up truck of the future as Toyota works toward carbon neutrality. Based on the single-cab Hilux, the showcase vehicle includes a closed grille, new headlights, and a charging port on the front left fender. Except for those modifications and the finer wheels, it resembles a Thai Hilux Revo Standard Cab. Toyota claimed that it had modified the structure to accept an electric motor but withheld information on the motor’s power, range, or charging capabilities.
Toyoda did not specify a release date or if the idea will be made into a real car, but he did hint that the EV pickup truck was being developed and tested in Thailand.
