Toyota’s electric concept bZ4X was unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show as an announcement of the Japanese manufacturer’s entry into the electric crossover segment. The launch of the serial version is planned for the middle of 2022, and the car will be produced in Japan and China.
The car is designed in a contemporary style and follows the trend of narrow light groups equipped with complete LED technology. In the cab, the digital instrument panel in front of the driver is protected by side panels, which should probably prevent glare.
A large screen for multimedia content and other functions is located in the middle of the center console, with special function keys below. The center console also has a rotary controller for selecting the driving mode, buttons for systems that help the driver, as well as a blue touch-sensitive surface for multimedia.
Toyota did not release drive data, but said the bZ4X has all-wheel drive. The model was developed together with Subaru, and uses the e-TNGA platform for electric vehicles.
“BZ” is an abbreviation of the English “beyond zero” and will be Toyota’s label for the future family of electric vehicles. The company has already patented the names bZ1X and bZ5X, as well as versions without the letter X, which suggests that they will not have all-wheel drive.
Toyota is planning seven models in the bZ family for markets around the world by 2025, and will have a total of 15 electric models. The Japanese manufacturer plans to have about 70 vehicles with some form of electrification by 2025.
