The Toyota Crown, which dates back to the mid-1950s, has gone through several modifications throughout the years. Toyota landed on the sedan concept in the early 1990s, and the lineup was totally redesigned last year, offering two sedans and two crossovers.
The standard Crown Sedan is the most recent addition to the Japanese lineup, replacing the fifteenth-generation model. The 2024 Toyota Crown emits a luxurious vibe and measures 198 inches in length, 74.4 inches in width, 57.9 inches in height, and has a large 118.1-inch wheelbase.
The 2024 Crown Sedan is offered as a fuel cell vehicle (FCEV), carrying over the Mirai's hydrogen technology. With three fully charged hydrogen tanks, it can travel up to 510 miles before needing a refill, which Toyota claims can take as little as three minutes, comparable to fueling an ICE car.
Furthermore, the FCEV variation can power your home and appliances, with two accessory outlets within the car acting as an emergency power supply even when the vehicle is switched off. Toyota, on the other hand, equips the Crown Sedan with a newly developed 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain that combines a gasoline engine and two motors.
While exact technical specifications are not yet available, full power is available at roughly 27 mph, which is a major advance over Toyota's prior hybrid systems, which achieved maximum power at 87 mph.
The 2024 Toyota Crown Sedan was formally introduced in Japan and will go on sale in Japan on November 13. The hybrid model starts at 7,300,000 JPY ($48,500), and the fuel cell hydrogen version starts at 8,300,000 JPY ($55,200). Toyota hopes to sell 600 units each month through Kinto subscription services, which start at 108,130 JPY ($720) per month.
