Even though Prado’s decision to use pure battery power may seem extreme, large markets such as the US are adopting strict tailpipe laws. These laws will result in a 30% reduction in emissions by 2026. This could mean that some models will be made without internal-combustion engines. The Prado electric could help reduce cannibalization in 300 Series LandCruiser 300 Series Sales. Customers who need a diesel engine will have to buy the bigger sibling. It is also differentiated from other competitors like the GWM Tank 500 hybrid V6-powered vehicle.
