Toyota Commits to the A-Segment in Europe

• New model to continue role of an affordable entry point to the Toyota brand

• Use of GA-B platform will deliver familiar ride, handling, safety and design benefits

• Annual production of GA-B based models will rise to 500k to secure economies of scale

• Installation of an internal combustion engine will keep new model within reach

Toyota today announces its continued commitment to Europe’s important A-Segment with the confirmation that a third model featuring the GA-B platform will be produced.

The upcoming model will continue the role of entry point to the Toyota brand and will retain the key dimension of being accessible.

Toyota’s development of new platforms under the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) philosophy has delivered recognised improvements in the ride, handling, safety and styling of a series of recent new models. The new Yaris, for example, which recently won the 2021 European Car of the Year and based on the GA-B platform, has been very well received by European customers for its dynamic styling, great packaging, very efficient yet responsive hybrid engine and excellent driving dynamics as well as class leading safety.

The next model to feature the GA-B platform is the Yaris Cross, which will be launched later this year. Together, Yaris, Yaris Cross and the new A segment model are expected to bring annual production of GA-B based products to over 500k in Europe.

This volume achievement will help to deliver the economies of scale that are necessary to secure the key element of accessibility that A-segment customers demand.

Equally important is the selection of powertrain. Today the A-segment is heavily dominated by products featuring internal combustion engines, illustrating that budget is a key consideration – and the market outlook sees this strong mix continuing, especially for customers where financial accessibility is a dominant factor.

vedo con piacere che Toyota se ne impippa dell'elettrico e continuerà a proporre - rivendicandola come scelta giusta - la propulsione termica.

almeno sappiamo che chi non vorrà sborsare 25mila euro per una sciccosa citycar elettrica potrà ancora contare su una piccola sporca vetturetta a pistoni.

Svelato il logo del sub-brand Toyota dedicato ai veicoli elettrici: BZ

Attesi 5 modelli, i primi due (BZ1 e BZ1x, una belina e un crossover compatto) saranno lanciati negli USA a fine anno, ci si aspetta un'anticipazione al Salone di Shanghai 

 

Su questa base dovrebbe poi arrivare anche una berlina 3V Subaru

Toyota sperimenta in pista un motore ad idrogeno a combustione derivato dal 3 cilindri della GR Yaris, quindi non fuel cell! Il motore sarà montato sun una Toyota Corolla Sport del team Orc Rookie Racing che parteciperà a una gara della Super Taikyu, si tratta di una 24 ore prevista per il weekend del 21-23 maggio sul circuito del Fuji.

Beh se non ricordo male Toyota e BMW hanno una JV legata all'idrogeno quindi non mi stupirebbe se dietro questo nuovo motore ci fosse l'aiuto dei tedeschi (o l'uso di qualche loro brevetto)

La stessa considerazione che stavo facendo io
