Toyota Motor said on Monday that the launch of a small electric sedan, will be powered by BYD batteries and will be produced and sold in China.

The automaker said the car would be called the Toyota bZ3.

It is not confirmed when it will be available in showrooms.

It is the second model in the new Beyond Zero (bZ) series of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) from the automaker.

Toyota had prepared to reveal the bZ3, which uses BYD’s less bulky Blade batteries, at the Beijing auto show in April, but the event ended up getting canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bZ3 has been jointly developed by Toyota and BYD, Toyota said on Monday.
