Sino-Japanese joint venture FAW Toyota saw its 10 millionth vehicle roll off the production line at its new plant in Tianjin on Monday.

The vehicle was an electric bZ4X SUV, built based on Toyota's latest e-TNGA platform. It has a driving range of 615 kilometers on one charge.

The new manufacturing facility is located in Tianjin's Binhai New Area. As the joint venture's fifth plant in the country, it is dedicated to new energy vehicles.

It can produce sedans, SUVs and MPVs, with its annual production capacity reaching 200,000 units, said the carmaker.

FAW Toyota was established in 2003. It has since introduced a mixed lineup of models including sedans, SUVs as well as minibuses.

The joint venture is one of the most popular carmakers in China, the world's largest vehicle market.

Despite the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of vehicles FAW Toyota produced in the first 10 months this year was up 10 percent year-on-year.
