Toyota announced a new crossover for Europe
In 2021, the Japanese brand will introduce a brand new electric SUV developed in collaboration with Subaru.
Toyota has released the first teasers of a new electric crossover designed specifically for the European market. The car will compete with Volkswagen ID.4, Nissan Ariya and other similar cars.
The crossover will be built on the e-TNGA platform - an electric version of Toyota's new modular architecture, which is used as the basis for most new models of the Japanese brand. This chassis provides a variety of configurations with front, rear or all-wheel drive, as well as options with electric motors and battery packs of different power and capacity.
Presumably, the new Toyota crossover will debut in 2021. It will be developed in conjunction with Subaru, whose own version is expected to be named Evoltis. In the future, Toyota's line of electric cars of the new generation will be replenished with a small crossover, created in conjunction with Suzuki, a large SUV, as well as a minivan and a sedan.
The production will be established at a new plant in Japan, where they will produce exclusively cars with electric power plants. By 2025, Toyota intends to bring to the European market up to 60 new or updated models and their modifications with electrified units.
Earlier it was reported that the Japanese authorities by 2035 may ban the sale of cars with gasoline and diesel internal combustion engines in the country. In the near future, the local Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of the country by the end of the year should announce the appropriate strategy for the transition to cars with "zero emission".
