Auto Expo 2023: After making its international debut last year, the BZ4X, Toyota India's first electric SUV, was showcased in India. Based on the e-TNGA EV-specific platform, it features dual electric motors and all-wheel drive, which is highlighted by glossy black cladding around the wheel arches. The all-electric four-wheeler features quad LED projector-equipped thin headlights, a slim LED DRL, a thin grille, and 20-inch machined alloy wheels, along with a sloping roofline. The overall front design is not very aggressive. Dimensions-wise, the upcoming BZ4X EV has a 150mm longer and 5mm wider wheelbase than those of the Toyota RAV4 SUV.

Reportedly, Toyota is unlikely to introduce the BZ4X anytime soon in India. The carmaker only showcased the model at the ongoing Auto Expo 2023. However, if launched, the Toyota BZ4X (D1 segment-based) electric SUV will compete with models such as the Volvo XC40 Recharge, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and Kia EV6.
