Toyota is launching the bZ4X in the USA in spring

Toyota’s first purely battery-electric passenger car model bZ4X will arrive at U.S. dealers this spring with a starting MSRP of $42,000. The AWD limited edition tops the range at $48,780.

The bZ4X electric SUV will be offered in both Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) and All-Wheel Drive (AWD) variants. The FWD variant offers a 150 kW drive, while the all-wheel-drive version combines two electric drives with 80 kW each.  The bZ4X produces a horsepower rating of 201 for FWD and a horsepower rating of 214 for AWD. Acceleration from 0-60 is estimated at 7.1 seconds for FWD and 6.5 seconds for AWD.​

In terms of range ratings, the XLE FWD model has an EPA-estimated range rating of up to 252 miles. The XLE AWD model has an EPA-estimated range of up to 228 miles. Charging is possible with 120V and 240V chargers as well as DC fast-chargers. All bZ4X models are equipped with a J1772/CCS1 socket, which allows for both home and public charging. The 6.6 kW onboard charger allows the bZ4X to charge from low to full in about 9 hours with a Level 2 charger, while a 0-80% charge on a fast charger should take about 30 minutes.

For charging away from home, Toyota is providing customers who purchase or lease a new 2023 Toyota bZ4X with one year of unlimited complimentary charging at all EVgo-owned and operated public charging stations nationwide. Access to the chargers, as well as their locations, can be found via the Toyota App.

How many of the vehicles will be available on a global scale is also still in question, as Toyota added the following disclaimer on their order website: “2023 bZ4X currently available in select states only and in extremely limited quantities. Contact your Toyota dealer for availability details”.
