Is this the Toyota LQ compact EV production model?

Toyota’s electric future was showcased last year when the auto giant unveiled the LQ compact electric car at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. It was a futuristic concept that seemed a little too far fetched. But not this one that we’re looking at right here.

It may be nothing more than just a rendering, but it’s a very plausible concept-to-production envisioning of Toyota’s LQ EV concept. And it looks eye-catching, too, with a well proportioned body, sculpted design and round headlights that is very un-Toyota like.

The full electric LQ concept is propelled by an electric motor which gets its energy from a large-capacity 54.3kWh lithium-ion battery. It produces 204hp (152kW) and a full charge is good enough for a cruising range of about 300km. The LQ is also equipped with level 4 autonomous driving technology.

The Toyota LQ production model is expected to debut in mid 2021.
