The press service of the Japanese brand announced that in a couple of days, May 18, there will be a presentation of two new models with hybrid powertrains. New items can be the Venza crossover and the Sienna minivan, or maybe the Tundra pickup.

With the proliferation of COVID-19, due to which all major and important car dealerships and events were canceled, new car debuts were rare in the past few months.

A couple of hours ago, the Japanese company Toyota announced plans to introduce “two completely new hybrid models” – the presentation will be held live on Monday, May 18. It is known that at the same event the Toyota Prius 2021 hybrid sedan of the model year in 2020 Edition will also be shown.

 The press release does not even reveal the identity of these cars, but we have some ideas about this.

There is information from one of the company’s dealers that one of the new products will be the Sienna 2021 minivan – this car will be available exclusively with a hybrid transmission. The car supposedly goes on sale in the fall.

 There is also a rumor that Toyota will revive the Venza name for its new crossover, which the company will produce at its factory in Alabama (USA). Production is reported to not begin until September 2021, which means that the new product will go on sale in the 2022 model year. Existing information suggests that the vehicle will be available exclusively with a hybrid drivetrain.

 The next-generation Toyota Tundra pickup will also reportedly receive a new hybrid powertrain. This is reportedly a version of the electrified twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6. A variant of this motor is installed in the LS 500h full-size sedan, where its power is 354 horsepower.
