Ahead of the Japan Mobility Show 2023, Toyota Motor Corporation has taken the wraps off its all-electric Concept SUV previewing the first electric Land Cruiser. Billed as the Land Cruiser Se, the concept is slated to make its debut at the upcoming Motor Show starting on October 25. The Land Cruiser Se is an electric version of the Toyota Land Cruiser and, in doing so, it bears the iconic Land Cruiser nameplate which is traditionally associated with a muscular SUV stance and a powerful V8 engine, however, the electric crossover lacks all these qualities. Details are scarce, but the brand has released digital renderings of the concept, featuring a unique and futuristic design. Up front, the Land Cruiser Se gets an enclosed grille, an angled bonnet, slim headlights with the TOYOTA lettering between them, and a daytime running light (DRL) extending into the LED headlamps.

In profile, the Land Cruiser SE, Toyota's third born-EV concept, gets a sharper window line, flared wheel arches, low-profile tyres, flush door handles, and camera-based outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs). Meanwhile, the rear is characterised by a sleek LED light bar, blacked-out pillars, and pronounced fenders. Other design bits include skid plates and a 'floating' roof.

Along with the Land Cruiser Se Concept EV, the company will also showcase the FT-Se and the FT-3e SUV concepts at the Tokyo Motor Show, both of which were teased a week ago. Whilst the FT-3e is said to adopt a design language unique to the brand's EVs, the FT-Se appears to be a performance-oriented variant sharing similarities with the GR electric sports car, which was introduced in December 2021.
