Introducing the Toyota Urban SUV Concept

Urban SUV Concept

Toyota is delighted to reveal the Urban SUV Concept, previewing a close-to-production version of a compact new battery electric vehicle. The production car will be a key figure in Toyota’s BEV strategy for Europe. It represents the most compact and accessible model in a line-up of six dedicated BEVs that will be introduced by 2026.

Urban SUV Concept

Toyota already enjoys prominence in the B-SUV segment with the hybrid electric Yaris Cross, the best-selling model in its class. So we have drawn on this experience in the development of an authentic and highly versatile battery electric SUV that meets the priorities of European customers. It will also deliver the quality, durability and reliability that are hallmarks of the Toyota brand.

Urban SUV Concept: no compromise design and engineering

The Urban SUV Concept offers an authentic SUV presence, with a compact body set on strong shoulders and a commanding driving position. Space is maximised in a flexible interior that can be easily adapted to prioritise passenger or load space as required.

Despite its predominantly urban focus, front- and all-wheel drive powertrains will be available. Similarly, the production model will offer a dual battery strategy, with customers being able to choose between two battery capacities to best suit their budget or driving range requirements.

Further details of the Toyota Urban SUV Concept and the production model will be announced in 2024.

The future according to Toyota

Toyota envisions a future in which carbon neutrality is achieved through a portfolio of products with alternative fuel and zero-emissions powertrain technologies. This multipath strategy will help propel Toyota Motor Europe toward its goal of exclusively offering ZEVs by 2035 and reaching complete carbon neutrality by 2040.


  1. I can’t wait …

    Toyota knows EVs, and I trust them to be the leader in making electrification affordable but with charisma and efficiency.

  2. It’s good that finally passenger load or space requirements can be customised, but what about customer comfort especially in the rear. This is one of the criteria that is sadly lacking in new models.

  3. I hope that this is competitively priced. I am a 3 times chr owner but I am very disappointed that my GR Sport is £10000 more than my two year old model-ridiculous. I am looking to down size a little and this could suit me. However if Toyota don’t start selling competitively priced electric models I may have to look elsewhere. I do hope that doesn’t happen.
