2021 Toyota Electric SUV Concept Teased Ahead Of April 19 Debut
Toyota electric sports utility vehicle teased ahead of its global unveil on 19th April. The new EV from Toyota will be based on the brand’s e-TNGA platform.
A Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer, Toyota Motor Corporation has released a teaser for its upcoming electric SUV. Alongside the teaser image, the company has also confirmed that the new Electric Vehicle will be globally unveiled on 19th April 2021. The new fully electric SUV from Toyota Motor Corporation is said to be underpinned by the brand’s newest e-TNGA platform. The upcoming Electric Vehicle could also be a part of Toyota’s ‘Beyond Zero’ sub-brand of fully electric models. The models under this are also expected to get an exclusive blue badging, signalling its electric nature. The concept version of the 2021 Toyota EV is expected to be showcased at the upcoming Shanghai Auto Show, scheduled to take place later this month.
The Shanghai auto show takes place from April 21 to 28 and hosts a reveal that the Japanese automaker already announced last December. For Toyota, this Electric Vehicle comes not a moment too soon; while it has dominated the hybrid-car domain for as long as it has existed, the Toyota is late to the all-electric party.
The upcoming Toyota fully electric SUV is expected to compete in the midsize segment. The SUV will be the first of the 6 bespoke Toyota Electrical Vehicles coming this decade, which include a small compact vehicle co-developed with Suzuki/ Daihatsu, a midsize crossover, a minivan, a few sedans as well as a large sports utility vehicle.
The upcoming electric SUV is expected to go on sale in Europe “in a couple of years,” as per a statement made by Toyota Europe’s sales and marketing chief, Matt Harrison, in an interview late last year.
Toyota is yet to reveal any details about the upcoming Toyota electric SUV, but we do know that the e-TNGA platform is being engineered to accommodate front-, rear-, and all-wheel-drive configurations as well as different types of electric motors and battery packs ranging from 50 to 100 kWh.
