Toyota's first E-SUV BZ4X is probably only manufactured in small quantities-only

Toyota was a pioneer in the field of hybrid vehicles, starting with the prius to an almost exclusively exclusively from hybrid vehicles product range in Europe. In the first half of 2022, the company then wants to take foot with a pure stromber on the market. Toyota sets a compact electric SUV, the BZ4X. In addition, the E-SUV’s founder of a new sub-brand for Toyotas pure e-division.

Beyond Zero will be a pure electro-sub-brand, from which to 2025 seven BZ models should come on the market. The letters “BZ” stand for “Beyond Zero”, which underlines Toyota’s ambitions, to have a positive impact on the environment. The compact SUV is built on a special EV platform called E-TNGA and at least initially imported from Japan to Europe. Matthew Harrison, CEO of Toyota Europe, is already in advance to understand that the BZ4x is probably first produced only in small quantities. This is mainly because the compact SUV Toyota RAV4 will help with its conventional or plug-in hybrid drive of the brand to fulfill the European Union’s emission standards in the coming years.

This is how Harrison assumes that “RAV4 in hybrid and plug-in form will be the dominant model in this segment until 2025” when it comes to complying with the statutory CO2 specifications. In addition, it was that the “prices for the markets are not really fixed and the volume distribution is not yet validated” was for the pure electric SUV. Possible competitors in the segment targeted by Toyota already exist: The VW ID.4, the Tesla Model Y and Hyundai Ioniq 5. Furthermore, Renault is planned another stromer in this segment.

The BZ4X was developed together with Subaru, which is 20 percent owned by Toyota. He uses the all-wheel technology of Subaru and offers according to Toyota “the best four-wheel-time capabilities of its class”. Subaru has announced to bring its own version of the vehicle to the market within the next five years. First of all, the E-SUV of Japan will come to Europe. In addition to the year 2025, Toyota will consider the construction of fully electric vehicles in Europe, said Harrension, without calling details.

Toyota assumes that half of its sales will be in Europe to 2030 emission-free vehicles, D.H. about 700.000 to 750.000 vehicles in the region, which also belong to Russia, Turkey and countries of the former Soviet Union. “We have a strategy that states that we build where we sell, and this sales volume would certainly require local production,” he said. “We will take some emission-free vehicles in our program before 2025, but not in the scope that it would make sense to first produce on site. We expect another acceleration from 2025 to 2030 – then we will really see a dramatic change in terms of complete electrification, “he added.”

  1. Toyota jumps – to tell me Fudl David’s words: “A good horse jumps just as high as it has to”
    Stupid only that the carrier horses of the 19. For centuries, not very quickly had to jump – it needed / she did not want any more &# 128521;

    RIP Toyota &# 128577;

  2. It is not the first fully electric SUV from Toyota.
    The RAV4 has already existed between 1997 to 2003 fully electric for the Californian market due to carb.
    Allegedly, there are still 800 pieces of which due to bought battery patents from Texaco also have to be scrapped as the remaining 800. Texaco then restricted the production of NiMH batteries so that there is no BEVs anymore.
    Maybe Toyota lived in the trauma &# 128578;

  3. Hyundai also had to realize that they have given themselves with the small quantities and had to increase capacities.

  4. While a D of the E-car market explodes? Well, a BEV explosion looks different. But Vlt. If you read the article several times to understand what really is in it? One point that one can read clearly could be this “quote: Car world marketHelp – is this the car of the future?The corporations shine on the cars with state-of-the-art supercars. But experts say: If you do not offer a cheap car, can not become world market leader. VW has the ambition, but the right vehicles have others.

    Toyota certainly does not expect that you buy in D so high quantities so that own finishes are worthwhile. But where hardly pure e-cars are needed in the near future, it looks very different. There you make the core business and there are the masses of cars in the near future and they are only useful and useful in the field of metropolises. There are even many countries where not even the horse-drawn carriage is extinguished, but countless people need a vehicle which Vlt. the horses and the donkey replaced. Where would the appropriate infrastructure in huge countries?. There you need affordable vehicles and a nationwide refueling structure. There is no AAS endlessly laid long cable. Neither in Russia, China, Australia, ……… that can be made here in Miniland, but not in Africa and in many areas of Asia. How long have cars for normal long distances keep with us? For fast, wide stretches, there are better means of transport than to set up between trucks. With thick batteries … one propagates max. 130 km / h. The reality on highways looks different. Construction sites and transport vehicles determine the clock and you would be glad if you could hold 130 km / h. It’s like the ICE. The braced advantage of an extra fast range, but he has to use the existing rails. Between usual trains. Shinkansen looks completely different. Today’s car belongs to the museum and soon … in Urnanen Breich Customs Man E-Keucars that anyone can use.
