Toyota Nigeria Limited has announced plans to launch three electric vehicles in the country over the next three years as part of its commitment to the government’s Green Deal initiative. Mr. Kunle Ade-Ojo, TNL’s Managing Director, stated this on Friday during a press conference at the company’s debut Toyota Motor Show.

He cited Toyota hybrid electric vehicles coming to Nigeria soon, including the Toyota Cross, RAV4, and Land Cruiser Prado. Ade-Ojo stated, “By the end of this year, we will debut our first hybrid electric vehicle, Toyota Cross.

Next year, we will introduce the RAV4 hybrid. We’ll also be introducing the Land Cruiser Prado hybrid late next year or early in 2026,” he added. He also stated that TNL would offer its extensive network of workshops to the Federal Government’s drive to promote the usage of compressed natural gas-powered automobiles through conversion.

“We are almost concluding arrangements with different partners to use our network of workshops for vehicle conversion to CNG-powered,” he informed us.

The TNL MD recalled that last year, Nigeria sold approximately 10,000 new vehicles, with Toyota accounting for approximately 1,500 units. He stated that approximately 15,000 new automobiles were expected to be sold in Nigeria this year, and that Toyota was on track to quadruple its previous year’s record.

The private motor show featured a car exhibition, two new Toyota product releases, unique after-sales packages, test drives, and engaging encounters. The cosy, spacious area also housed the Body and Paint Section, the Spare Parts cubicle, and the Service section, outside the hall, but within the lavishly adorned event centre for the Toyota show, there was an international test-drive arena for consumers who wanted to have a feel for any of the vehicles.

Apart from TNL MD Ade-Ojo, additional TNL officials were on the ground, providing information about each of the vehicles on exhibit as well as after-sales support.

Ade-Ojo personally guided business customers, including top government officials and important CEOs of big corporations, through the various portions.

Speaking to journalists earlier, he stated, “This show is for all Toyota customers and other Nigerians interested in purchasing Toyota vehicles.”

“While we’re still participating in other shows, this solo Toyota Motor Show will enable us to concentrate on our customers’ needs, giving them a view of our range of vehicles and letting them to know other things we can do for them in terms of after-sale service, spare parts availability and body and paint as well as other value-adding services.”

The show, he explained, provided the TNL team with the opportunity to “have one-on-one interaction with our customers without any distraction; free diagnosis on customers’ vehicles and a test drive, all taking place in a quiet and comfortable environment.”
