All Eyes on the Latest Toyota Innova Electric, Spotted on Public Road

Toyota has demonstrated full regalia use of hybrid technology. Recently, Innova Hycross was introduced as Innova Kejing Zenix in Indonesia. It can be known as Innova Crysta Hycross in India. In spite of this, Toyota is also spending a sizable portion of its R&D budget on pure EVs and PHEVs.

Toyota showcased a concept prototype of the all-electric Innova at the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) in Jakarta earlier this year. It was able to get a lot of attention globally, particularly in South Asian and Indian markets where Innova is well-liked.

Spied Innova Crysta Electric

Toyota’s concept prototype Innova Crysta Electric is a fantastic illustration of how it is now electrifying its ICE vehicles. This prototype has recently been seen being tested on roadways. Is Toyota thinking about using the older platform to build all-electric vehicles? It’s an overreach. However, there is a good chance it will happen.

The marketing director for Toyota Astra Motor in Indonesia, Anton Jimmi Suwandy, claimed that the “Kijang Innova Electric will not go on sale and has been constructed as a concept for the sole purpose of engineering development.” Suwandy continued by saying that “research and development of future EVs being prepared for the region are using the Innova EV idea.”

The Innova EV idea is “merely a study,” as Henry Tanoto, Vice President Director at Toyota Astra Motor Indonesia, has revealed. The idea is credited with increasing EV popularity in the community. The IMV2 ladder-on-frame architecture, which supports the outgoing Innova Crysta, is built to support both petrol and diesel engines.

A significant packaging difficulty with this technology is the integration of battery packs and motors. Thanks to outdated structure that limits the amount of room for batteries. Toyota may invest in electrifying its current lineup of ladder-frame, traditional cars, including MPVs, SUVs, pickup trucks, and more. There are some markets, like pickup trucks, where electrification and the durability of ladder-frame chassis are both crucial.

What Should You Expect?

Future workhorses from the Japanese company, such as SUVs and pickup trucks, may be electrified or even hybridised if what Toyota is trying with the Innova Crysta electric concept prototype works out. GM, Ford, and even Rivian are selling electric cars with ladder-frame chassis in North American markets.

Toyota is unlikely to release an electric version of its MPV, despite the Innova Crysta electric concept prototype being seen road testing. The Innova Hycross is already on the market and offers a hybrid powertrain as an option along with a modern monocoque chassis with a FWD layout.
