New MR2 could arrive in 2021 as an EV

There is no denying that the MR2 was an incredible sports compact for its time, offering a great midengined, RWD setup for a fraction of the cost of European rivals. Thanks to EV tech it looks like the MR2 may be getting a second life. Would a pure electric sports car from Toyota be of any interest to you guys? https://www.topspeed.com/cars/car-ne...-ar183185.html

I'm concerned at the fact that Toyota is pushing coupe's to soon. First I would like to see improvements to the 86 and sustained sales of the Supra till more models come out. Toyota losing money on a new MR2 could delay development on these other coupes mentioned.

If Toyota hasn't updated the 86 by now, I think its a safe bet that they probably never will. I agree that they should probably hold off on introducing new models until they see what interest in the MKV is like. That being said I would love to see another midengined RWD car from them.

If Toyota truly has no interest in updating the 86, then yes I really think they should consider introducing a new model. At least with an electric powerplant we wont have to worry about it underperforming.
