2023 Toyota Tacoma EV Rumors and Expectations


The current generation of Toyota’s super-popular mid-size pickup truck has been around since 2015 and it looks like the Japanese manufacturer is working on the next version, which will probably come in the next year. At the same time, the company had a presentation of numerous EV concepts for the future. In this group, we also noticed a pickup truck, which closely resembles the Tacoma pickup. That’s why many believe that the next generation will come as the 2023 Toyota Tacoma EV as well.

At this point, the officials are still quiet on this matter. We are pretty sure that the Japanese manufacturer will try to offer a hybrid version first, considering that the current model is available with gasoline powertrains only. The EV model would probably come sometime later.

2023 Toyota Tacoma EV Design

As we’ve just mentioned, the Japanese manufacturer recently presented a concept version of a new EV pickup truck. What’s the most interesting thing about this vehicle is that it is one of the most down-to-earth concepts we’ve ever seen from the Japanese manufacturer. It closely resembles Tacoma, which is a clear indicator that the company probably won’t be expanding the lineup. Instead, we would expect to see an all-electric version of Tacoma.

At this point, we don’t know much about this design but we presume that the new 2023 Toyota Tacoma EV would use the same BEV technology as the rest of the lineup. This means that the battery would be placed under the floor, while electric motors are expected on both ends of the vehicle.

Exterior and Interior

As we’ve just mentioned, the concept version didn’t come with too many fancy futuristic details, which is a clear indicator that the production version would look much different. Moreover, the concept truck looks a lot like the current generation Tacoma, with the main difference at the front. Of course, a panel replaces a classic grille, while the headlights feature a slightly different shape. Also, the concept came in a crew cab layout, with a short bed, so we may presume that this could be the only version of the 2023 Toyota Tacoma EV to come.

Toyota didn’t show the interior of this new concept, so it’s hard to talk about details. Still, we presume that the cabin design would look the same as in other Tacoma versions. We count on a notable improvement over the current generation, on more tech features, nicer materials and other upgrades. Among other upgrades, we should also include more passenger space, because the current model isn’t particularly generous in this aspect. This particularly refers to headroom.

2023 Toyota Tacoma EV Powertrain

As we already mentioned, the 2023 Toyota Tacoma EV should use the same technology as the bZ4X. Still, we count on greater numbers in many aspects. The single motor version could come with the same 201-hp electric motor, mounted on the rear axle. On the other hand, we expect to see a much higher output in the AWD version, compared to bZ4X’s 215 horsepower. We believe that the max output would go around 300 horsepower in this case.

When it comes to the battery, the recently presented crossover features a 64-kWh pack, which ensures 250 miles of the all-electric range. We presume that the 2023 Toyota Tacoma EV would come with a notably bigger battery and maybe even a longer range. The exact details are yet to come.

2023 Toyota Tacoma EV Release Date and Price

The next generation of Toyota’s mid-size truck will hit the market in the next year. Does this mean that we may also expect to see the 2023 Toyota Tacoma EV? Probably not. We presume that the initial version would come with gasoline and hybrid powertrains on the offer, while the all-electric version would arrive sometime later. When it comes to the price, we believe that base versions could cost under 40.000 dollars.
