Toyota Previews bZ3C and bZ3X Electric SUVs at Beijing Auto Show

Toyota has recently revealed its bZ3C and bZ3X electric SUVs at the Beijing Automotive Show, targeting younger drivers and families. These new EVs are set to make their debut in China, with Toyota sharing some essential specifications for both models. Last year, Toyota introduced these vehicles as concepts at the Auto Shanghai Exhibition, under the names bZ Sport Cross Concept (now bZ3C) and bZ FlexSpace Concept (now bZ3X). The bZ3C caters to Gen Z drivers, while the bZ3X is family-centric.

Collaborative Development

Toyota collaborated with BYD Toyota EV Technology, FAW, and Toyota’s Intelligent ElectroMobility (IEM) R&D Center Team to develop the bZ3C. The bZ3X, on the other hand, was a joint effort involving Toyota, the GAC Group, GAC Toyota, and IEM.

Features and Design

The bZ3X, being the larger of the two EVs, offers a more spacious cabin. Both SUVs boast a panoramic sunroof, digital dashboard, large infotainment screen, and wireless charging pads for convenient mobile device charging on the move.

Toyota has hinted at advanced driver-assistance technology within the bZ3C and bZ3X but has not disclosed specifics regarding drivetrains and other key parameters. While an official launch date remains undisclosed, indications suggest a forthcoming release.

Availability and Pricing

Details regarding the pricing of the new Toyota EVs have not been made public. While initially designed for the Chinese market, it is uncertain whether these models will also be accessible in selected markets beyond China.
