The sports car needs power. However, the company is going to place a hybrid combo under the hood of the 2019 Toyota MR2. So, a mid-engine layout is a logical solution. Some details could come from Le Mans LMP1 vehicles, but this is just a rumor.

On the other hand, it is not impossible to happen. Also, the MR2 could come as a classic petrol vehicle, ready to deliver massive output. We can also look to its siblings in search for the adequate powertrain. However, MR2 will use lightweight materials to deliver better fuel economy. So, if combination light vehicle-strong powertrain-electric batteries happen, the 2019 Toyota MR2 is the car to follow when it appears. Another advantage of the Gazoo and LMP1 concepts is low emission. With it, this vehicle is going to meet all regulations in every country worldwide.
