The next Toyota Supra could go electric

If the next Toyota Supra will still be thermal, it should also be available in a 100% electric version.

Two versions on the program

Marketed since 2019, the Toyota Supra is currently available in two versions, with a four- and six-cylinder engine. But while it is starting to age a little, the manufacturer is already working on the next generation. But at Toyota, the future is not limited to electric. Its former president Akio Toyoda had already stated this many times in recent years, and the brand’s projects confirm this diversification. In addition to the development of new electric models, Toyota continues to explore other avenues, notably hydrogen as fuel cell technology and fuel for thermal engines. Thus, according to the Japanese media Best Car, the Japanese firm is working on two versions of the Supra: one entirely electric and one running on e-fuel. The collaboration with BMW will also continue on this new model, which will be equipped with a six-cylinder 3.0 mild hybrid that can run on synthetic fuel.

Rising power

For the moment, we do not yet know the characteristics of the electric version, which has not yet been confirmed by the brand. But we already have some information on the thermal variation. Ains, the new engine should gain power, going from 340 hp to 400 hp. In addition, it will be associated with a 6-speed manual gearbox and an 8-speed automatic transmission. However, fans will have to wait a few more years before discovering this new Supra. Toyota wants to make the most of the current model, particularly with a GRMN version planned in the coming months. According to forecasts, this variant could receive the most powerful variant of the 3.0 six-cylinder, reaching 450 or 500 hp. The most recent rumors even suggest a power of 540 hp, thus surpassing the recently reworked BMW M4. This version, probably produced in limited series, could also be associated with a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
