At the end of 2021, Toyota unveiled its concept-model lineup of upcoming battery electric vehicles. In an effort to achieve carbon-neutrality, Toyota has set a goal to offer 30 new EVs, across all segments, by 2030. This model, designated as Toyota’s 7- or 8-passenger 3-row SUV is called the bZ Large SUV.
Pricing is unknown at this point, but it’s worth pointing out that Toyota is aiming to add reasonably priced EVs to their lineup rather than focusing solely on the range. The current gas-powered Highlander will run you between $36,420 and $48,775 (with destination), and the current Toyota Highlander Hybrid costs $39,585 and $51,490. We expect the Toyota bZ Large SUV to start out closer to $60,000.
The release date info for the bZ Large SUV has not yet been announced. But due to the major push to roll out 30 EVs globally by 2030, it could come as soon as the end of this year.
Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
