Toyota’s electric strategy is slowly unfolding

We know a little more about Toyota’s all-electric offensive. The project’s chief engineer, Koji Toyoshima, leaked some information regarding it to Automotive News.

What needs to be understood is that future Toyota electric vehicles will be based on a common and modular platform called e-TNGA (electric-Toyota New Global Architecture).

As Toyoshima mentioned, his idea of ​​a modular platform is a little like a remote-controlled car on which different types of bodies can be affixed. In this case, Toyota will produce portions of the vehicle that can be assembled to the desired size: small, medium or large.

This platform would also be able to accommodate configurations with front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or even full-wheel drive. Toyota has already determined the capacity of lithium-ion battery packs that would be 50 kWh for low-power models, while larger vehicles with high battery life would be equipped with 100 kWh batteries.

The expected range for urban models would be around 300 km, while the largest (certainly in the form of a crossover) could travel up to 372 miles (or 582 km) on a single charge.

At this point, Toyota is currently working on solid electrolyte battery technology that could be a game-changer for EVs. The manufacturer has indicated that it will unveil its EV strategy in the summer of 2020. We should, therefore, learn more about Toyota’s future for electric vehicles within a year.
