Toyota and Lexus are accelerating into the future with their electrified vehicle lineup, showcasing innovation, performance, and sustainability. Here’s a glimpse into what they’re bringing to the roads:

2024 Toyota Land Cruiser: After a 35-year absence, the iconic Toyota Land Cruiser makes a grand return to Canada, boasting the i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain that delivers a robust 326 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s built on the resilient TNGA-F truck platform, ensuring it can withstand the most challenging environments. The First Edition grade offers an exclusive touch with its unique interior and exterior features.

2025 Toyota Crown Signia: The Toyota Crown Signia introduces a new crossover SUV silhouette to the Canadian market, exclusively featuring a hybrid powertrain and standard electronic on-demand AWD.

2024 Toyota Tacoma Hybrid: The Toyota Tacoma Hybrid has been completely redesigned and is now built on the TNGA-F global truck platform. It’s powered by the i-FORCE MAX turbocharged hybrid powertrain, matching the Land Cruiser with 326 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. Off-road enthusiasts will appreciate the Baja-Inspired TRD Pro with its segment-first IsoDynamic Performance Seat and the all-new Trailhunter grade, which comes fully equipped with the latest integrated off-road gear.

2024 Toyota Prius Prime: The Prius Prime redefines what it means to be a hybrid, combining over 25 years of pioneering hybrid technology with a sexy new design. The 5th generation hybrid powertrain offers 220 horsepower and an impressive electric driving range of up to 72 km, which is 80% more than the previous generation.

2024 Toyota Mirai: The Toyota Mirai stands out as a zero-emission vehicle powered by hydrogen, featuring a dramatic and refined coupe-inspired body design. Its 2nd generation fuel cell powertrain provides up to 647 km of emission-free range, and it can be refuelled in about 5 minutes. Plus, its rear-wheel-drive configuration ensures a sporty driving experience.

2024 Lexus RZ 450e: Lexus introduces its first global battery electric vehicle, the RZ 450e. It embodies the 3 Es: electrified, exhilarating, and built on the e-TNGA platform. The new DIRECT4 all-wheel-drive system enhances driving refinement, and the transition from the Lexus spindle grille to the spindle body design marks a new era for the brand.

2024 Lexus RX 500h: The RX 500h represents the evolution of Lexus’ best-selling nameplate, which created the luxury SUV segment in 1998. The 5th generation sees a total redesign and offers four powertrains: gas, hybrid, performance hybrid with DIRECT4 all-wheel drive, and an all-new plug-in hybrid. It’s a testament to the quality, being proudly crafted at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada, which has been building Lexus vehicles for over two decades.
