Toyota Unveils 2 EV Concepts at 2023 Guangzhou Auto Show

Toyota has unveiled 2 electric concepts at the ongoing 2023 Guangzhou Auto Show in China. The two EV concepts are a sleek sedan and a large SUV.

Neither of the two concepts have English names, though the sedan concept has a Chinese name that translates to Comfortable Space, while the SUV concept has a Chinese name that translates to Enjoyable Space.

The electric SUV concept is virtually identical to the Toyota bZ FlexSpace Concept that was revealed in China earlier this year. It reportedly measures around 4,800 mm long and has a 2,900 mm wheelbase. The dimensions make the Enjoyable Space concept fit in between the Toyota RAV4 and Kluger. The production version of the Enjoyable Space electric SUV concept will reportedly arrive in China next year and will be available with single- and dual-motor electric powertrains.

On the other hand, the Comfortable Space electric sedan concept will reportedly enter production in 2025. The electric sedan concept measures approximately 5,000 mm long and has a 3,000 mm wheelbase, making it very much comparable to the Lexus ES in terms of dimensions. Other features of the electric sedan concept include retracting door handles, camera side mirrors, and 21-inch alloy wheels.

The interior of both concepts hasn’t been detailed yet as both concepts were displayed with blacked-out windows. However one may assume to see a minimalist interior design as seen in the new breed of Toyota vehicles with a squared-off steering wheel, velour-like trim, flat front seats, a sliding center console, and a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system.
