Toyota previews battery electric SUV

Toyota has released a stylised silhouette of a new mid-size battery electric SUV it is developing.

The vehicle will be based on the forthcoming e-TNGA platform, which the manufacturer says is highly versatile and easily adaptable for a range of product types.

The basic architecture principle is a number of key elements remain fixed while others can vary.

This approach allows variance in vehicle width, length, wheelbase and height.

The e-TNGA platform can also accommodate front, rear or all-wheel drive, with a range of battery and electric motor capacities to suit various vehicle types and usage profiles.

The first e-TNGA-based model has already been developed and is being readied for production.

Koji Toyoshima, deputy Chief Officer, ZEV Factory, Toyota Motor Corporation, said: “Toyota will shortly take the next step in the roll-out of its forthcoming battery electric portfolio by first previewing an all-new mid-size SUV in the coming months.

"The versatility and flexibility of e-TNGA technology allows us to design and create vehicles that are not just battery electric but also exciting to drive and beautiful to look at.”
