We obtained the declaration map and information of FAW Toyota bZ4X from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The car will be built by the e-TNGA pure electric exclusive architecture of FAW Toyota New Energy Plant. It is expected to debut at the 2022 Beijing Auto Show and be officially launched in late June. As Toyota’s twin-car strategic model, the car will also be produced in GAC Toyota.
Different from Toyota’s previous conservative design, the exterior design of Toyota bZ4X is very bold, and the front face of the new car is full of technology and futuristic sense. The huge front surround kit and the long and narrow headlights look more futuristic.
At the rear, the bar taillights form unique edges and corners, and with the highly layered rear shape, it looks more flamboyant, which reminds us of Toyota’s hybrid model Prius. It seems that each of Toyota’s pioneering models has a unique personality.
In terms of configuration, the new car will provide fixed sunroof, roof rack, front camera, reversing radar, rain sensor, solar panel roof, on-board ETC, etc. Referring to the declaration information, the FAW Toyota bZ4X has a body size of 4690/1860/1650mm in length, width and height, and a wheelbase of 2850mm. It is positioned as a compact SUV. Depending on the model configuration, 235/60 R18, 235/50 R20 tires will be provided.
