2023 Toyota bZ4X-Toyota released the official map of the mass production version of its pure electric SUV model bZ4X a few days ago. The new car will be released in mid-2022 and is based on the e-TNGA platform.
2023 Toyota bZ4X Design
The new car’s design is based on the shape of the previously released concept car, and the front face features a closed air intake grille, which is a prevalent design language for pure electric vehicles. The headlamps on both sides have a more angular form. The interior is darkened and joined by chrome strips, effectively stretching the front face’s horizontal perceived breadth.The lower enclosing component has a three-stage design with vertical ventilation slots on both sides and a polygonal air inlet design in the middle. The inside is adorned with decorative strips in the shape of banners, which creates a strong visual effect.
In terms of side style, the overall line feels harsher, and the roof line is rather straight, but a slip-back shape is formed from the C-pillar to the rear, taking into mind the rear passengers’ head space and the impression of movement. To create a powerful cross-border ambience, the external mirrors, ornamental bands surrounding the windows, wheel eyebrows, and side skirts have all been blacked.
The tail light group uses a through-type design for the tail, which effectively widens the horizontal optical width of the tail. The roof has a hollowed-out rear wing, and the top of the trunk has a blackened small-sized rear wing, both of which contribute significantly to the impression of movement. The lower enclosing part’s shape is similarly more radical and has a sense of hierarchy to it.The new car’s dimensions are 4689/1859/1648mm in length, width, and height, with a 2850mm wheelbase.
2023 Toyota bZ4X Interior
The new car’s interior features a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel, a full LCD instrument panel, a suspended central control screen, and an electronic shift mechanism, all in keeping with Toyota’s family design philosophy. The sense of science and technology is performing reasonably well.
