Toyota bZ4X Concept | Subaru Solterra BEV- Available Mid 2022
For anyone who doesn't know, when Toyota labels something as a concept it essentially means it is very close to the production version. We know this will be coming to Canada as Motormouth has done a video below, sadly no exclusive details related to Canada. North American-specific product details will be out later.
This is indeed the BEV that Toyota collaborated with Subaru. It is on the new e-TNGA BEV dedicated platform with a new AWD system developed with Subaru. This is a RAV 4 size vehicle. Expect Subaru to possibly have the name plate be Evoltis and announced at a later date.
It has a long wheelbase and short overhang to help create a distinctive design. To be built in Japan and China and available in mid-2022.
This announcement was also in line with Toyota's electrified future. We know that by 2025 there will be 70 models of electrified vehicles. To Toyota electrified means hybrid, PHEV, BEV, and hydrogen fuel cell. In those 70 models, it includes 15 BEVs with 7 having the bZ designation.
It also mentions that a hybrid and BEV pickup truck line will be coming as well.
On the side profile, it reminds me of the UX, apparently the light models seems to be from Lexus and the back is similar to the NX but more Toyota style lights.
On Toyota Global News Room, images shows a yoke not a steering wheel. Seen below.
