Toyota is preparing to debut a new electric model from the bZ family . The Japanese car manufacturer, in fact, has shared, through its social channels, the teaser of its new battery-powered car, an SUV. The short video shows only a part of the rear of the new model which, apparently, will be able to have horizontal LED light units, connected to each other by a thin light bar.
プリウスから付けられたこ&# 12398;バッジには、地球に暮らす 人々の幸せを大切にし、次&# 19990;代にそれを引き継いでいき たいというメッセージが込&# 12417;られています。

The deepest detail interesting, however, concerns the "license plate" where we find “bZ Compact SUV” written. This is the name of a concept that is already we know and about which the Japanese car manufacturer had provided some information last year.
Therefore, the new model should be the series version of the concept. According to some rumours, the official name chosen by Toyota for the series version should be bZ3x. As mentioned, the teaser does not show much of the car but its shapes should not differ too much from those of the concept whose images we propose again.
More smaller than the bZ4x which is already we know, it should therefore present a design with some references to that of the C-HR. Unfortunately, we know nothing about the mechanics. We can only imagine that it will always rely on the new e-TNGA platform. The concept featured a particularly futuristic interior. The passenger compartment of the new SUV will, however, be much more traditional. In any case, there will be digital instrumentation and a large display for the infotainment system.
We remind you that the concept measures 4,538 mm long x 1,888 mm wide (excluding mirrors) x 1,560 mm height.
We know nothing about the powertrains. Currently, the bZ4x electric SUV can count on 160 kW in the version with dual motor and all-wheel drive. Will we also see this engine on the bZ3x? We'll find out when the new model is released. officially brought to the debut.
Certainly there is only that it will not have of the new batteries that Toyota is working on given that they will only arrive in 2026. The presentation of the new electric SUV could take place between the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024.
