The new 2023 bZ4X has finally received a start date for sales.
After announcing the company’s first electric vehicle last year, without taking into account the old RAV4 EV, Toyota has finally launched prices for its future bZ4X SUV before reaching dealers later this spring.
For the basic XLE front-wheel drive, the bZ4X will start at $ 42,000, while offering a range of 400 km on a single charge. In the meantime, if you prefer a slightly more premium kit, you can upgrade to the Limited package (starting at $ 46,700) which adds more luxurious satin and soft-touch finishes and improved seats, with Toyota offering FWD and X-MODE AWD traction options throughout both levels of equipment.
A model for the future
Although similar in size to the popular RAV4, the bZ4X has a sleeker, more futuristic design that focuses on improved aerodynamics and driver visibility due to the lower hood height. On the base model, Toyota claims 0-100 km / h for 7.1 seconds, or 6.5 seconds for the AWD version. That being said, the faster acceleration of the AWD model comes with a slightly reduced range, reaching about 366 kilometers on a load.
Inside, the car offers seating for five passengers and an infotainment system with a 12.3-inch touch screen that supports CarPlay and Android Auto wirelessly. You’ll also get a handful of USB ports (both Type A and Type C), a built-in wireless charger, and a three-year trial period for Toyota Remote Connect service, which allows owners to control things like car temperature, horn, window defogger and more from an app on their phone.
Finally, when it comes to recharging, the bZ4X will come with a 6.6 kW adapter included, which should be able to bring the car from low to high in about nine hours when connected to a charger. 2.
