Hot-Looking Toyota FT-Se Electric Sports Car May Become a Reality Soon
Designer Confirms Shared Battery Pack with Lexus and Hints at Production
Let’s be honest, no kid dreams of hanging a poster of an electric crossover on their bedroom wall. However, a hot-looking electric sports car could be a different story. The recent debut of the Toyota FT-Se Concept at the Japan Mobility Show has sparked excitement, and there’s reason to believe that this dream car might not remain a mere fantasy for long.
Hideaki Iida, the project manager for the GR (Gazoo Racing) Design Group and the mind behind the FT-Se Concept, shared some intriguing details in an interview at the auto show. Notably, the FT-Se shares the same battery pack as the confirmed-for-production Lexus LF-ZC. While Toyota hasn’t officially announced whether the FT-Se will become a reality, Iida’s words were quite convincing.
“We’re going to release the Lexus model in 2026 and this one afterward,” Iida stated. “We can’t guarantee the year itself, but as soon as possible. After 2026 is what I can tell you.”
