After talking to an old friend in the car business, I felt inspired to try and chase down some features that might find their way to the hybrid Tundra (which is likely due out in 2016).
While it’s still early to discuss this truck, the fact is Toyota has likely already decided on features, options, and capabilities of the world’s first real hybrid pickup (no, GM’s psuedo-hybrid Silverado doesn’t carry, as it wasn’t a true hybrid powertrain…more like a hybrid-assisted engine).
Here are some hybrid Tundra features that my informed and intelligent sources think might be on the table:
Toyota recently revealed an all-new Toyota RAV4 electric-powered SUV, a result of the partnership with Tesla, that took only 22 months to develop. With this new model on the market, a plug-in Hybrid Tundra should be quick to follow.
