We heard rumors about the Toyota Innova going hybrid as far back as May this year. Fast forward to last month, Toyota somewhat confirmed that there’s at least a next-generation model coming. Now, thanks to the latest teaser, the carmaker has pretty much confirmed that the new MPV will, in fact, be a hybrid.
Following the sneak peek from October, Toyota has now released yet another image of what appears to be a seven-seater vehicle in the shadows. There’s also a one-liner that reads: “The new energy is coming.” There’s your blatant giveaway.

We still have no idea about what kind of electrified Innova we’ll be seeing, though. Will it be powered by the same hybrid powertrain found in the RAV4 Hybrid? Or perhaps the Corolla Cross’ engine setup? Also, will it still be built on the same IMV platform as its Hilux and Fortuner siblings?
Of course, keep in mind that all these are still speculations at this point, so take them with a grain of salt. For now, you can refer to more speculations and check out our render of the next-gen Innova instead.
