Toyota has announced that the first deliveries of its new electric vehicle, the Toyota bZ4X will start this summer.
The new Toyota bZ4X will have a range of up to 516km or 320 miles on the front-wheel drive model and 470km or 292 miles on the all-wheel drive model.
Built on a dedicated new platform for battery electric vehicles, using the eTNGA philosophy, it is the first in a series of new bZ (Beyond Zero) models. Offering sharp design, spacious packaging and authentic SUV performance. It also marks the debut of a new all-wheel drive system that uses individual electric motors on the front and rear axles to give outstanding capabilities.
Thanks to efficient motors and energy management, the official, homologated WLTP* figures show the front-wheel drive model achieving up to 516 km on a fully charged battery, with an efficiency rating of 14.3 kWh/100 km or 7.0 km/kWh. For the all-wheel drive bZ4X, the official range is up to 470 km with 15.8 kWh/100 km or 6.3 km/kWh efficiency**.
This level of performance is made possible by the bZ4X’s 71.4 kWh battery, developed with the benefit of a quarter of a century of Toyota electrified vehicle technology expertise. The quality of the battery is supported by an optional extended care programme for owners that guarantees battery capacity of 70% after 10 years or 1,000,000 km driven.
