Toyota Urban SUV concept previews a chunky little electric crossover
- Toyota Urban SUV concept is a little boxy electric crossover that comes as a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki eVX concept.
Toyota has uncovered images of images of an all-new concept electric crossover. Christened as an Urban SUV concept, it comes as a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki eVX, which was uncovered earlier this year in February at the Auto EWxpo 2023. The electric crossover concept comes as a preview of the Japanese car manufacturer's future electric vehicles and it is expected to play a crucial role in the brand's overall EV strategy.
If you remember the Maruti Suzuki eVX concept from Auto Expo 2023, you can see resemblances in the Toyota Urban SUV. The B-segment electric SUV concept is going to be the most compact and accessible in a planned six-model dedicated BEV portfolio. Initially, the Urban SUV is planned to be introduced in the European markets, but later it could be launched in other global markets including India. This Volvo EX30 rivalling electric SUV will be showcased in full production form in the first half of 2024. Ahead of that, the automaker has just revealed it at Toyota’s Kenshiki forum in Brussels.
