Toyota finds surprising partner in development of cheap electric SUV -

Toyota wants to catch up in the field of electric cars. Such as with this new affordable electric SUV that is currently being developed with a surprising partner.

According to Japanese Best Car Suzuki is working on the compact EV. That is quite surprising, since Suzuki is not exactly known as an EV brand. Suzuki does not even have a single electric passenger car in its model range. Yet Suzuki's knowledge can be of value to Toyota. Suzuki does have enough expertise in the field of developing compact cars.

bZ Small Crossover

A concept car of a compact SUV in Toyota's bZ series was already shown in 2021. At the time, Toyota gave a glimpse into the future with 16 electric models, including the 'bZ Small Crossover'. The new compact SUV from the bZ family is said to use the e-TNGA platform, which also includes the Toyota bZ4X is on.

The new SUV will be part of Toyota's model range Toyota bZ3X are placed. The bZ3X is also currently in development and will be based on Toyota's other study model - called bZ Compact SUV Concept.

Further cooperation with Suzuki

The compact bZ model is not the only electric car collaboration between Toyota and Suzuki. This year, the two Japanese car brands already jointly released a small electric van, and Suzuki will present more minivans at the upcoming Japan Automobility Show. These are on a new EV platform developed in collaboration with Toyota.

Suzuki, like Toyota, plans to catch up in EVs. At the beginning of this year, the car brand showed its first official electric creation: the Suzuki eVX. Although it is still a concept car, the Japanese show their intention to enter the EV market. Our tip for Toyota and Suzuki: focus on the sales price, the car world needs more cheap EVs.
