Toyota will once again be collaborating with Subaru on an all-electric SUV. The two brands recently came together to create the bZ4X and Solterra crossovers, and they'll be joining forces for a larger three-row EV, which we're calling the Toyota bZ5X. We still have more questions than answers surrounding the upcoming EV, but here's what we know so far about the 2025 Toyota bZ5X.

The Subaru Solterra and Toyota bZ4X were developed jointly between the two automakers and are mechanically similar. According to Automotive News, this arrangement will also produce the larger bZ5X. They also added that the bZ5X will be built in Kentucky and use batteries made in North Carolina, which implies that there's a good chance it'll be eligible for the $7,500 federal EV tax credit under the most recent guidelines.

Toyota hasn't revealed what the bZ5X will look like yet, but we expect its design language to mirror that of the bZ4X but scaled up to accommodate a third row. The bZ4X's styling is considerably more modern and angular than Toyota's gasoline-powered lineup, and we expect similar styling on the bZ5X.

As with the exterior, we only have the bZ4X's interior to go off of so far. We expect the bZ5X's cabin to feature a similar layout, save for space for a third row. The bZ4X comes standard with a 12.3" touchscreen, digital gauge cluster, wireless charging, and subscription-based navigation. We might see more standard features in the larger and presumably more expensive bZ5X, but we'll know for sure closer to launch.

Powertrain details are also a mystery so far. The bZ4X makes as many as 215 hp and there's a chance the bZ5X will have the same setup, but we wouldn't be surprised if it gets beefier motors to compensate for its size. The same holds true with the bZ4X's 63.4 kWh battery pack, which provides up to 252 miles of range in that application.

We don't have a release date or pricing for the 2025 Toyota bZ5X yet. We'd expect it to start in the $50,000 range, given that the smaller bZ4X starts at $43,550.

The 2025 Toyota bZ5X will compete with the Kia EV9, Chevrolet Blazer EV, Tesla Model Y, and Nissan Ariya.
