The Toyota bZ SUV Concept Shows Off Toyota's Next EV

After the bZ4X and the bZ3, Toyota has just previewed a new all-electric compact SUV that’s been previewed as the bZ Compact SUV Concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The bZ Compact SUV Concept is designed as a full battery-electric vehicle with what Toyota calls a “clean-vital” design approach. This approach aims to express what’s special about battery electric vehicles while also offering fun to drive performance. Not only will it bring forth a vehicle with zero emissions, but will use eco-conscious interior materials and leading technology.

The aerodynamic form of the concept enhances its futuristic look by pushing the wheels to the corners to achieve an aggressive stance. The short overhangs and sweepback angles make it stand out as an advanced technology vehicle; a narrowed-down cabin design gives it an agile appearance for a low coefficient of drag.

The edgy styling extends to the interior with premium finishes resulting in a distinctive look. Notably, the design team included several eco-friendly touches, like seating made from plant-based and recycled materials. And an in-car personal agent named, “Yui” connects the driver and passengers with the vehicle. With the use of audio and visual lighting cues that move around the cabin, it responds to requests or commands from front or rear passengers.

The bZ Compact SUV Concept is expected to become the bZ3X in the next couple of years.
