Toyota's first electric vehicles in China will be the compact C-HR EV and the identical, but rebranded, Izoa EV.

The electric crossover will feature a reshaped grill, distinguishing it from the familiar combustion-powered version.

The makeover has left the already quirky-looking C-HR looking even more goofy.

Toyota has given almost no details about the electric powertrain or its estimated range.

We do know that the C-HR EV will ride on Toyota's TNGA architecture, which opens the possibility of electrifying other Toyota vehicles that share that global platform.

The C-HR EV will also be sold as the Izoa EV thanks to Toyota's strange joint venture partnerships in the Chinese market.

GAC Toyota will call it the C-HR EV, while FAW Toyota will use the Izoa EV moniker.
