Axed before hybrid: Toyota Supra to be discontinued in 2025 rather than face electrification - reports

Toyota Supra to be axed in 2025

Toyota's Supra will be killed off in 2025, according to Japanese reports, saving the sports car from going hybrid with the rest of the company's line-up.

News today out of Japan suggests the Supra, which is twinned with the BMW Z4, will be retired in 2025, two years after the launch of the range-topping GRMN model, which is the same year Toyota has promised to offer a hybrid version of every model in its range.

The new reports, which are yet to be confirmed, suggest there is no replacement strategy for the current-gen Supra, which only launched in Australia in 2019.

The first two allocations of Australian vehicles sold out in minutes, proving serious pent-up demand for the return of the iconic nameplate.

The reports do strengthen comments made by the car's chief engineer, Tetsuya Tada, who told Australian media last year that he had said no to a hybrid Supra.

Toyota is yet to officially comment on the reports.
