Toyota presented the Hilux Revo EEV concept in Thailand in December 2022 to show what an all-electric version the country's "national vehicle" could look like. Toyota Motor Thailand (TMT), celebrating its 60th year, introduced the Hilux Revo BEV concept. Toyota president AkioToyoda attended the event to showcase the concept.
The Hilux Revo BEV was one of the vehicles displayed at this year's Bangkok International Motor Show. We got close enough to take a few photos. Toyota has not yet confirmed when or if a production version of the Hilux Revo BEV will be available. Also, technical specifications are not yet available. A look under the vehicle reveals a rear-mounted electric engine that draws power from a battery within the ladder-frame chassis.
The concept is based on the current Hilux Revo Standard Cab in Thailand. It looks almost production-ready with an interior (more later). There are some exterior changes, such as a more closed-off front grille and a chrome strip connecting the newly designed headlamps.
A new bumper has been added with glossy black sections, such as the faux corner intakes or lower apron trim. For obvious reasons, the 17-inch alloy wheels on the sides replace the stock steelies. The fuel door on the left side has been omitted. A charge port door has been added to the front of the vehicle, and various exterior panels are adorned with 'BEV’ badges.
It looks just like a standard Hilux Revo Standard Cab from the inside, but with some upgrades. The cabin features leather seat upholstery and dual-zone climate control. The center console has been modified to house an electronic brake and a gear selector. This design is reminiscent of the bZ4X. The concept is an electric vehicle (EV), but it still features analog gauges as well as a multi-info screen instead of a fully digital one.
