Legendary Toyota with 67 years of history will become a crossover in hybrid and electric variants

Toyota plans to launch a new version of the famous Crown model for Japan, China and North America. The car will turn from a sedan into a crossover. The Crown model dates back to 1955.

The crossover will be available in different versions. Sources say the regular Crown hybrid will go on sale in the summer of 2023 in all the aforementioned regions, while the plug-in hybrid is intended for the domestic market.

According to two sources, the all-electric model is set to launch in early 2024, with the automaker yet to decide on the countries where the model will be sold.

In addition, it is reported that Toyota will also release a completely redesigned version of the Crown sedan this summer. Both the SUV and the sedan will be produced at Toyota plants in Japan.

The Crown was the first Toyota car exported to the United States in 1958. Two years later, Toyota was forced to suspend exports because the Crown’s engine could not reach the speed required for American highways.

Toyota sold more than 200,000 Crown sedans in 1990, at the height of Japan’s economic boom, but by last year annual domestic sales were down to 21,000.
