Hope it's better than the fingerprint recognition in my Galaxy Note10+

very important information is missing.

"Live" sales, although they started today, but the queue for a novelty in Japan has already been scheduled for two to four years, depending on the modification (information from the local edition of Driver). From early July to August 2, dealers accepted 20,000 prepaid orders from customers.

so yes already 20000 cars ordered and prepaid already from Japan...who wants new Cruiser need wait 2 or 3 years folks...and someone will say Japanese have no money/okane ga nai :) ?/...

Will there be any electric versions of the car?

8.0 km/L? And that's up 20% The Land Cruiser should be outlawed in this day and age.

These cars are shocking examples of the trend towards bigger and bigger models. Do two little humans really need something the size and bulk of a tank? Is there no such thing as global warming. What a disgusting thing the human species has become.

Is the security for domestic or export cars I wonder?

It depends on the situation. If you incidentally drive into a false area and become entangled by 20 or 50 machete wielding immigrants in a European country, or if you get in the US into amidst a demonstration of Trump vs. Biden followers or in the evening a quite usual gang shooting in Chicago happens, then you surely wish even for a real tank instead of such a toy like the SUV is in such a situation. lol In many other scenarios you might be right and even a small Japanese Kei car is sufficient to bring you from A to B. In other words, the car should correspond with the surrounding of nature or any types of humans.

I know certain models are stolen in Tokyo and Nagoya for example, for illegal shipment abroad, but cars in Japan generally do not have or need those aftermarket safety features like alarms etc. that you find in the West.

Thus my question above. Are Toyota thinking of the export market here, or sadly Japan’s modern domestic market, or both?

New designs, which look very much inspired by GM or Ford, with the heavy duty, bulky front ends.

Where there is demand there will always be supplies, NOTHING will stop a thief because he is just as cleaver if not even more cleaver than the inventor.

Oh forgot to mention, in many cases the thief works hand in hand with the inventor, LOL

Ridiculous. Many things stop many thieves. Some thieves will get creative and figure out ways past security. Your thinking is binary whereby the existence of any way to get past security means the thing is entirely useless. The reality is a scale, not a binary option.

In Japan, there is no need for these massive tractors-they’re just a waste of fuel
