Details of BEV jointly developed by Toyota and BYD released


"bZ SDN" regarded as the bZ3 concept car

The website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China has published the latest information of FAW Toyota's new generation of BEVs. From the appearance, the car should be the sedan model "bZ3" of the Toyota EV series "bZ".

Toyota announced that it will introduce more than 10 BEVs including the "bZ series" to the global market by 2025, and the bZ4X jointly developed with Subaru has also been sold in Japan.

Toyota also cooperates with other manufacturers. In April 2020, Toyota and BYD jointly established a joint venture "BYD TOYOTA EV TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD. (BTET)". In addition, in March 2022, the "bZ3" test car of the "bZ SDN" commercially available model was also witnessed in Shenzhen, China.

This time, the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China announced the appearance and some specifications of the two bZ3s.

Although the information published on the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China does not record the clear car name, the bZ3 logo can be seen from the attached rear photo.

Body dimensions are 4,725mm long, 1,835mm wide, and 1,475mm high, with a wheelbase of 2,880mm. Front and rear track is 1,580. The number of passengers is 5, the maximum speed is 160km/h, and the tire size is 215/65R16 and 225/50R18.

So far, it is consistent with the previous public information. The new motor related information is as follows.

The motor functions are different, there will be 2 specifications?

One of them has a motor output of 135kw, a vehicle weight of 1,710kg, and a total vehicle weight of 2,145kg.
The other model has a motor output of 180kw, a vehicle weight of 1,835 to 1,840kg, and a total vehicle weight of 2,260kg, which increases the weight.

From this, it is inferred that the bZ3 should launch two specifications with different motor and battery capacity.

Both the motor and battery manufacturers are made by Fudi Power, a subsidiary of BYD's EV affiliate.

Two specifications are compiled, the appearance is also different?

The attached bZ3 looks almost identical to the bZ SDN published in December 2021. However, the two specifications of the bZ3 are slightly different in the exterior design of the model.

Models with a motor output of 180kw, like some vehicles from bZ SDN and Lexus, are equipped with compound-eye headlights, and are also equipped with a high-performance intelligent high-beam automatic shading system.

On the other hand, the headlight design of the motor output 135kw model is relatively simple, and the price should be relatively cheap.

The sunroof of the 180kw model is standard, and the 135kw model is optional, and the equipment of the two specifications is also different.

bZ3 is about to debut in China?


From the information published by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China, only part of the appearance and specifications can be known.

Although there is no description about the interior of the bZ3 on the website, it can be seen from the sightings of the previous test car that it is equipped with the same "knob-type gearshift" as the bZ4X, and the center console has a large-sized screen similar to that used by Tesla.

Due to the high reliability of the sources, it is almost certain that the Toyota bZ3 will be sold with this design. Toyota's joint development with BYD and its BYD sibling should be unveiled soon.
