Toyota bZ4X electric sedan gears up to take on the might of Tesla Model 3

Toyota may have been rather slow in giving wings to its electric vehicle (EV) dreams but the Japanese auto giant is now gearing up to hit and hit big.Earlier this year, Toyota launched its first all-electric compact SUV bZ4X which is based on the company's E-TNGA platform. Last year, Toyota also announced that it will drive in 15 battery electric vehicles by 2025 among which seven will be part of its bZ series. And now, the automaker is all ready to bring in its next bZ model, an electric sedan which is guessed to be called Toyota bZ3.
