Toyota to Preview New Battery Electric SUV at the 2021 Shanghai Motor Show

15 March 2021

Toyota today confirmed that it will preview its new mid-size battery electric SUV at the 2021 Shanghai Motor Show.

The new model, first revealed at Toyota’s Kenshiki forum in Europe in December last year, is based on the company’s new e-TNGA electric vehicle platform. The platform’s basic architecture allows for fixed key elements and the freedom to vary others, giving the freedom to create vehicles with different widths, lengths, heights and wheelbases.

The platform can also accommodate front, rear or all-wheel drive with a wide range of battery and electric motor capacities to suit different vehicle types and uses. This versatility and flexibility enable Toyota to design and build vehicles that not only use battery electric technology, but are also exciting to drive and stylish in appearance.

The Shanghai Motor Show will take place from 21 to 28 April (public admission days); media days are 19 and 20 April.
