2024 Toyota Tacoma Electric

2024 Toyota Tacoma Electric

Overview

Toyota’s next-generation Tacoma pickup is due to add an electric powertrain to its lineup. Look for the so-called Tacoma Electric to go on sale a year or so after its gas-powered kin. While much about the 2024 Tacoma Electric remains under wraps, the truck may have made its first public appearance at a recent event by the automaker. How Toyota integrates the electric powertrain within the truck’s frame is also a bit of a mystery. There’s the chance the company takes the same route Ford did with its F-150 Lightning full-size electric truck, which rides on powertrain-specific underpinnings but shares key body panels with its gas-swilling sibling. Then again, Toyota may save money by using the same frame for both gas- and electric-powered Tacomas. Regardless, we expect the Toyota truck to offer more than 200 miles of driving range and towing capacity that equals or exceeds its gas-powered brethren.

What’s New for 2024?

We expect the 2024 Tacoma Electric to share most of its exterior and interior pieces with that of the next-gen Toyota Tacoma—a vehicle we anticipate is due to arrive for the 2023 model year. As such, look for the Tacoma Electric to sport styling like that of the 2022 Toyota Tundra, albeit with some powertrain-specific cues aimed at improving the truck’s aerodynamics, such as a closed-off grille and distinct wheels, as well as EV-related menus within its central infotainment and digital gauge cluster displays.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

Toyota’s yet to release specific details of this model. Nevertheless, we wager the 2024 Tacoma Electrics will come exclusively in crew cab, four-door form. Plan on dropping at least (if not more than) $50,000.
