Toyota is one of the largest carmakers in the world and a pioneer in hybrid technology many years ago but in pure electric cars, however, it does not seem to be particularly trying to take on the change that is currently being made to electrification technology. That seems to change and this change comes naturally to the Chinese market.
C-HR and IZOA are Toyota’s first purely electric models worldwide, with the Japanese company not revealing technical details for the two models. The presentation was at the Shanghai Auto Show, with the first deliveries starting in 2020.
The models feature new bumpers, new grills, new wheels and a digital instrument cluster and a new gear selector inside. The motor is under the bonnet and moves the front axle, with the battery on the floor.
