Toyota BZ4X electric crossover concept introduces BZ sub-brand, previews production model due in 2022

Toyota on Monday unveiled the BZ4X concept at Auto Shanghai 2021, where the automaker also announced the new BZ (Beyond Zero) sub-brand for electrified cars.

The concept, a battery-electric crossover similar in size to the RAV4, is destined to spawn a production model that we’ll see by the middle of 2022, including here in the United States.

The production model is the crossover that Toyota said in 2019 it was jointly developing with Subaru which is to have its own version, similar to how the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ sports cars were jointly developed. The Subaru is expected to debut later this year and is rumored to be called an Evoltis.
