Toyota’s ‘sleek’ new FT-Se

Colour us excited - because this is the new Toyota FT-Se electric sports car.

For now it’s just a concept, having been revealed at the Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo.

But if it’s a glimpse at what a battery-powered Toyota GR Supra might look like, then you can expect an orderly queue of lease customers to start forming.

Better yet, the car’s designer Hideaki Iida is confident that the FT-Se will end up going into full production around 2026, thanks to this interview he did with the website InsideEVs.

There’s no word yet on what power the FT-Se might enjoy, but it’ll be going toe-to-toe with the incoming electric Porsche 718 Cayman, which is due to arrive in 2025.

You can expect a sub 3.0 second 0-62 mph acceleration time as well as handling to get your nervous system well and truly firing.

How do we know this? Because Toyota has already made the point of bigging-up the FT-Se’s knee pads that ‘protect the body from G-forces’. Enough said.

The FT-Se will be fine-tuned by the specialists in Toyota’s Gazoo Racing division, so it’ll wear the firm’s ‘GR’ badge with pride.

Meanwhile Toyota promises ‘wide and low proportions and a sleek, cutting-edge silhouette to reduce aerodynamic drag’ as well as a ‘next generation cockpit’ that features ‘intuitive controls and contributes to a more immersive driving experience’.

Interestingly, the FT-Se will also share an electric platform with the FT-3e, an electric SUV that has also been showcased at the Japan Mobility Show.

The FT-3e (below) is a Tesla Model Y challenger that is bristling with tech.

A Toyota spokesperson explains: “Digital displays extending from the lower side of the body to the upper door section present information, including battery state of charge and interior temperature and air quality, when the driver approaches the car.”

And the electric news from Toyota continues - as the manufacturer has also just revealed the first fully-electric version of its legendary Land Cruiser off-roader.

We brought you news of the Land Cruiser’s triumphant return to the UK leasing market a few weeks back.

And now Toyota tells us that a Land Cruiser ‘Se’ could also be in the works.

The Toyota Land Cruiser Se concept offers ‘the high-torque driving characteristics of a battery electric vehicle (BEV) together with an elegant and stylish design’, says Toyota.

There are seven seats to accommodate the entire family, and dog, and Toyota says the electric Land Cruiser Se will have all of the rock-hopping abilities of its diesel-powered sibling.

You can’t lease a Toyota Land Cruiser just yet, as the new model isn’t being delivered until next year.

But Toyota’s adrenaline-inducing GR Cupra (below) is available to lease with Select Car Leasing, with prices beginning at £713 per month*.

Or you can lease the fully-electric Toyota bZ4X hatchback-SUV crossover from £437 per month*.

*Prices include VAT. Credit is Subject to Status, Ts and Cs and Arrangement Fees apply. Excess mileage may apply. Stock levels and prices correct as of 30/10/23.
