Toyota has announced that it will preview a brand new model for its European Battery Electric lineup - a mid-sized battery-electric SUV based on the forthcoming the e-TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform. Further details are to be announced in the coming months. At this stage, only a stylised silhouette and details of the platform architecture have been released.

Thanks to its clever design the new platform is both highly versatile and easily adaptable for a range of product types. The basic architecture principle is that a number of key elements remain fixed whilst others vary. This approach allows variance in vehicle width, length, wheelbase and height.

e-TNGA can also be defined with front, rear or four-wheel drive and with a wide-range of battery and electric motor capacities to suit various vehicle types and usage profiles. By using this versatile approach, the development time of different product variants can be reduced and individual models can be developed in parallel.

The first e-TNGA based model has already been developed and is being readied for production. Manufacturing will take place at Toyota's ZEV Factory in Japan.
