Another thing that you will see is the attachment of an “EV” emblem under the main lamp. The Toyota logo in front and rear has a blue accent to show its status as an environmentally friendly vehicle.

In addition, the Toyota IZOA EV DRL also looks different from the conventional version circulating in India and Indonesia and has used white LEDs. The rim is also covered with dual-tone, black-silver colors.

Meanwhile, the back is not much different, still looks dashing and typical SUV. The lights still look aggressive with a tapered shape and combined with a roof-spoiler and black skid-plate.

The interior is still the same as the conventional version and only has a little alteration from the color of the seats that look more luxurious with beige colors. The electric version of the Toyota IZOA will also get a full digital display and a new gear lever.
