The Fully-Electric Toyota bZ4X Concept Debuts In North America

The bZ4X Concept will usher in Toyota’s impending age of EVs


  • The Toyota bZ4X Concept was jointly developed with Subaru.

  • It is built on the new e-TNGA global platform.

  • Sales are expected to begin in 2022.


Toyota does seem a little late to the EV fight, trailing notable heavy-hitting competitors like Ford, Hyundai, and Volkswagen. Even so, it won’t take long for the giant Japanese automaker to catch up. By 2025, Toyota plans on 70 new electrified models of which 15 will be EVs. Seven will be from the bZ family and the Toyota bZ4X will be the first.

The Toyota bZ4X Concept will be assembled on Toyota and Subaru jointly-developed e-TNGA EV platform that was designed to fit a pair of electric motors for AWD capabilities. The SUV will feature a long wheelbase along with short overhangs for a decidedly spacious cabin and powerful road presence.

“We are already global leaders in electrification, with the industry’s most popular and proven range of gasoline-electric hybrid models, plus plug-in hybrids and fuel cell electric vehicles,” noted Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “With the Toyota bZ4X Concept, we’re gearing up to introduce North Americans to the first of a series of new models, all built around Toyota’s battery-electric technology.”

Details beyond the meager notes above remain scarce however Toyota promises to share more this year, ahead of the bZ4X’s market introduction planned for 2022.
