Toyota has been a pioneer of the electrification game for decades now. They were the first company to introduce a mass-produced hybrid vehicle when the Toyota Prius made its debut almost 25 years ago, and they’ve been revolutionizing the practice ever since. Over the past couple of years, that innovation has ramped up. The Toyota Sienna is now a hybrid-only vehicle, as is the returning Toyota Venza. And now, Toyota has announced its plans to introduce three new electrified vehicles for the U.S. market this year, including two Battery Electric Vehicles and a plug-in hybrid.

“We continue to be leaders in electrification that began with our pioneering introduction of the Prius nearly 25 years ago. Toyota’s new electrified product offerings will give customers multiple choices of powertrain that best suits their needs.”
– Bob Carter, Executive Vice President of Sales, Toyota Motor North America
What do we know about these vehicles so far?
Obviously, details are pretty scarce thus far. We know, as already mentioned, that the automaker intends to introduce two BEVs and a PHEV. Unfortunately, that’s about all we know at this point. They also stated that by the time 2025 rolls around, every model on the Toyota lineup will have an electrified option available. In addition to that, the company will be designing a platform dedicated to battery electric vehicles exclusively, and they’ll call it e-TNGA.
As more information about these three mysterious vehicles becomes available, we’ll be sure to fill you in right here on our blog. In other words, be sure to check back often if you think you might be interested in one of these new electrified options that should be revealed before the end of the calendar year.
