Toyota, the renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer, has recently made waves in the European market with the launch of the mild-hybrid variant of its iconic Hilux lifestyle pickup truck. This game-changing move promises a remarkable upgrade in performance, efficiency, and eco-friendliness.
Scheduled for production in Thailand, this new Hilux MHEV (Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle) integrates a 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine with a 48-volt mild-hybrid setup. The ingenious application of mild-hybrid technology boasts a claimed 10% increase in mileage compared to its regular counterpart. Complementing this advancement is a seamless coupling with a 6-speed automatic gearbox and a start/stop system, optimizing fuel efficiency while maintaining robust power output.
The innovation doesn’t stop there. Toyota is setting the bar higher with its upcoming launch of the new Fortuner in the global market by 2024. This revamped version promises substantial design updates, introducing a fresh platform and a brand-new interior. The current Fortuner, built on the IMV platform, shares roots with the Innova Crysta. However, the new generation model will be based on the innovative TNGA-F architecture, widely utilized in various global models including the Land Cruiser 300, Lexus LX500d, and the Tacoma pickup.
Furthermore, the Toyota Fortuner’s upcoming iteration will house the same 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine coupled with the 48-volt mild-hybrid setup. Expectations rise for similar styling cues as seen in the Tacoma pickup, hinting at aggressive front bumper design, larger fender flares, pronounced curves, and a flat bonnet with striking creases. With a sleek white body and a blacked-out roof, the SUV will also feature flared wheel arches and cladding with skid plates, promising a blend of sophistication and ruggedness.
The addition of a potential 2.4-liter hybrid turbo petrol engine in this SUV aligns with Toyota’s commitment to innovation, drawing parallels from select Lexus and Toyota models.
This groundbreaking move by Toyota reflects its dedication to sustainability without compromising the vehicle’s off-road capabilities. The mild-hybrid setup in the Hilux assures no compromise in its off-road and towing prowess, maintaining a remarkable wading depth of 700mm.
The imminent arrival of these innovative models is reshaping the automotive landscape, offering consumers enhanced performance, improved mileage, and a greener footprint. Stay tuned for Toyota’s game-changing evolution in the European market.
