Developed by Toyota in partnership with Subaru, the bZ4X Concept is a mid-size SUV with all-wheel drive. The concept is set to be a milestone marking Toyota’s transition from purely a car company to that of a holistic business dedicated to delivering better mobility.

The ‘bZ’ is an acronym for ‘beyond Zero’ and reinforces Toyota’s commitment to not only achieving zero carbon emissions and carbon neutrality, but also going beyond to realize new benefits for the environment, for individuals and for society as a whole. The production version is expected to arrive in early 2022 with sales commencing by the middle of the year.

The Toyota bZ4X has a distinct front with an arrangement of sensors, lights and aero elements in a unique “hammerhead” form for a new attitude and road presence. With more than 20 years of Toyota’s leadership in vehicle electrification and brand-defining quality, durability and reliability, the bZ4X offers an electric powertrain — motor, control unit and battery management system — that will deliver class-leading efficiency and long driving range.

The car’s credentials are accentuated with an on-board solar charging system that further enhances range. Toyota’s extensive experience in battery technology has seen the creation of a larger, more powerful battery for the bZ4X Concept that has been engineered for reliable, lasting performance, maintaining the car’s driving range, even in cold climate.

Chief Engineer Koji Toyoshima, said, “Our target customer is someone who places importance on time spent together with family and friends. When they want to enjoy such times, Toyota bZ4X Concept can serve as a hub for them.”

The Toyota bZ4X Concept is a vehicle that is more than just a means of transport. It is aimed at serving up a comfortable and connected space where people can enjoy spending time together when making a journey.
