The e-TNGA is an electric car platform that will be applied to 10 dedicated models worldwide (including 6 global models) by early 2020. The six global models include:

  • Compact car (in collaboration with Suzuki and Daihatsu)
  • Mid-size crossover SUV
  • Mid-size sedan
  • Minivan
  • Mid-size SUV (in collaboration with Subaru)
  • Large SUV

The platform will enable offering various type and size of vehicles, different battery capacity and with front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or dual motor all-wheel drive. This vehicle architecture is partitioned into five modules. These are the front module, center module, rear module, battery and motor. Up to three versions of each module are in development, including three capacities for the lithium-ion battery.[29][30][31]

Daihatsu New Global Architecture[edit]

As Toyota owns 100% of Daihatsu since 2016, the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) is derived from TNGA and currently used exclusively in Daihatsu-produced kei cars and subcompact cars, some of which are sold with Toyota and Subaru badging.[32][33]
