Toyota C-HR turned into an electric carMarch 27, 2020
The automaker Toyota is already preparing for an electromobile expansion: a development strategy was introduced back in the summer of 2019.
It is known that in China electrification has long begun. So, in the Chinese market, the Toyota C-HR Electric battery crossover will soon appear, which is not available in other countries. Technically, the model is a copy of the Lexus UX 300e, which was also developed for the Chinese market.
Both SUVs are assembled on the basis of the E-TNGA platform with a rear multi-link suspension. The control units and inverters have the Denso brand and are located under the hood, and on the front axle there is an electric motor, the output of which is 204 hp.
The electrified crossover model differs from the gasoline version in a completely different front design with a reduced grille. Of the interior features, virtual devices can be distinguished instead of analog scales, as well as the original transmission selector. New models will be produced by the GAC Toyota joint venture, with sales scheduled for late next month.
