Toyota unveils its first production electric car


Toyota unveiled its first production electric vehicle, the bZ4X crossover. By 2025, the company promises to introduce seven models of the bZ series (beyond Zero) in North America, Japan, China and Europe, where there is strong demand for electric vehicles and a significant share of electricity comes from renewable sources, the company said.

The Toyota bZ4X is based on the e-TNGA modular platform, designed for vehicles with electric power plants. It will also build the Subaru Solterra electric crossover, which the company will unveil shortly.

Toyota bZ4X is available in two versions. In the base version, the crossover will have a single 150 kW (204 hp) engine on the front axle, allowing the electric vehicle to accelerate from standstill to 100 km / h in 8.4 seconds. The all-wheel drive version will be equipped with two electric motors (on the front and rear axles) with a capacity of 80 kW (109 hp) each and an acceleration time to hundreds in 7.7 seconds. In the first version with a fully charged battery, the electric car will be able to drive 500 km, in the second - 460.
