The e-TNGA platform is already in use in the all-electric bZ4X crossover SUV and is planned (for now) to support the upcoming 2023 Lexus RZ 450e.

However, according to the sources, Toyota is dealing with an EV production process that is too slow and expensive compared to other manufacturers, such as Tesla, who have been making electric cars for years. Reuters notes that Toyota partnered with Tesla to develop an all-electric version of its popular RAV4 SUV in 2012, but cites sources saying its engineers viewed the technology as a no-brainer.
