The Japanese carmaker revealed the all-new, all-electric Toyota BZ4X SUV concept at the Shanghai Auto Show 2021. This model is based on Toyota’s new e-TNGA platform, designed for battery-electric vehicles.
The new bZ4X concept is jointly developed in partnership with Subaru and is the first model under the bZ (Beyond Zero) title. The company is said to launch at least 15 pure-electric vehicles in global markets by 2025 under the bZ electrification strategy.
Toyota BZ4X Electric SUV gets similar styling to the popular Toyota RAV4 SUV, such as black wheel-arch trim, contrasting roof, and heavily angled styling cues. However, the all-new front-end design highlights the difference between the two.
Other design characteristics of the Toyota bZ4X concept include a long wheelbase, sharply styled headlights, short overhangs, solar recharging system, and sculpted air channels.
On the inside, the bZ4X gets a textured dashboard, low-mounted instrument panel for improved visibility, large central display, wide centre console, and new e-AWD system. The car offers an increased cabin space as well as rear legroom.
The technical details of the all-new Toyota bZ4X are not yet revealed. The production-spec Toyota bZ4X will first launch in Japan and China, with deliveries starting from 2022.
