Toyota bZ4X - Toyota's Impressive First All-Electric Car

Toyota bZ4X - Toyota's Impressive First All-Electric Car

The first of Toyota’s bZ (Beyond Zero) all-electric line of vehicles, Toyota provides a spacious, comfortable, and reliable vehicle that can handle any driving situation while minimising its environmental impact. This vehicle is most comparable to competitors such as the Kia EV6, Volkswagen ID.4, Hyundai IONIQ and Tesla Model Y.

Kyle from the Sales team gives us a video review of the Bz4X:

Introducing the Toyota bZ4X

The Toyota bZ4X comes in 3 options: Pure, Motion & Vision. These have a 150kW Motor and 71.4kWh Battery (204hp) as standard and increases in price, performance and interior tech respectively. The Motion and Pure models have the option of a 160kW Motor to become All-Wheel-Drive. However, this feature will cost you a small amount of electric range.Toyota bZ4X Car Driving

Rapid DC charging being available as standard enables a quick 10%-80% charge in as little as 30 minutes; complimented by up to 318 miles of range, there is no need for range anxiety! With a fast charger, you can expect a full recharge in about 6.5 hours at 11kW, an improvement on many other EVs within this price range. However, is electric range that important?

The front-wheel drive models of this vehicle only achieve a top speed of 99MPH and acceleration of around 7.5 seconds. However, these are not the intended aspects of this vehicle designed to impress!

Interior Technology & Features

Safety

Toyota Safety Sense: This is their collection of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that includes features such as pre-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.

Blind spot detection & Rear Parking Sensors: These assist with parking the vehicle and making you aware of a pedestrian's presence.

Surround view camera: This uses multiple cameras to give the driver a complete view of the vehicle's surroundings, this is helpful when parking or navigating tight spaces.

Toyota bZ4X Interior

Comfort

The interior of this vehicle is impressively spacious, there is loads of room for the driver and front and rear passengers. Additionally, the vehicle has a higher roof which helps to create extra headroom for taller passengers too. With this being an electric vehicle, the floor in the rear of the vehicle is completely flat making the experience for the middle-seat passenger a lot more enjoyable. Continuing the theme with the rest of the bZ4X, the Boot space of this vehicle is 452L, easily enough space for plenty of luggage or a big food shop, coupled with an electric tailgate and you’ve got a brilliant family SUV! Finally, a lovely additional feature is the heated front & passenger seats. If you want to know what makes such a great family SUV, then check out what is the best family car?

Infotainment & Connectivity

The bZ4X includes an 8” touchscreen on the Pure model & 12.3” touchscreen infotainment system on motion and vision models. The Toyota Smart Connect+ system provides constantly updated real-time map and traffic information, as well as road updates. Additionally, it offers the convenience of wirelessly connecting and charging your phone on the go with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Another handy feature is the MyT App on your smartphone. It allows you access to a range of connectivity features. These include the ability to check your car's battery level, schedule charging times, view trip data, and even remotely control your vehicle.

Finally, Toyota couldn’t forget the all-important wireless mobile phone charger which sits nicely in the centre console.
