Inspired by classic sports cars (Toyota MR2), the FT-Se stands at a compact 1,220mm tall and 1,895mm wide, exuding a purposeful stance. Its aerodynamic profile, featuring smooth curves, trapezoid shapes, and a rear spoiler, reflects a fusion of timeless design and advanced technology.

The vehicle’s electric powertrain marks a significant leap forward, delivering pure thrills and responsiveness. The latest batteries, characterized by low height and high energy density, enable the FT-Se to push the boundaries of performance. Downsizing and weight reduction in key components, including the motor, transmission, and air conditioning unit, enhance traditional sports car qualities such as stable cornering and confident braking.
