All-electric bZ4X arrive at US dealers
Range rating of up to 400km
Impressive AWD capability with X-MOD
PLANO, Texas – Toyota US’ upcoming, all-electric, Toyota bZ4X SUV, is said to not only extend the brand’s commitment to a carbon neutral but does so in style.
The automaker told The Corner via a media release the new model would “make a fresh mark on the battery-car segment “with bold, modern styling, and tech-laden features on an extremely capable platform”.
Two grades – XLE and Limited – with either front or all-wheel drive are claiming “impressive capability and versatility”. Sizewise, the bZ4X sits in the middle of the compact SUV segment and close to those of a RAV4.
Viewed from the rear, the bZ4X exudes a powerful stance with eyes drawn to the corners and tail-lights.
“Aesthetics aside,” Toyota says, the bZ4X’s design is functional. The low bonnet height provides superior forward vision and the spoiler and lower diffusers give aerodynamic performance and a unique look.”
The unique instrument panel and precision-placed MID screen expand the vehicle’s feeling of space while wind-noise reduction “provide a quiet refuge from the world outside” from beneath a transparent roof panel equipped with a powered sunshade.
The hub of the cockpit is positioned around a shared center console that functions like a table with storage for a smartphone with available wireless charging coupled with a transparent lid. The accessible USB ports (A and C) offer power and connection points in convenient locations. The door handles are a specialized shape designed to be more ergonomic, making them easier to grip.
Thanks to the e-TNGA dedicated platform, Toyota says, “driving the bZ4X is fun and engaging, due largely to the maximum torque available from the first touch of a right foot.
The XLE FWD model has an EPA-estimated range of up to 400km, the XLE AWD model has an EPA-estimated range of up to 370km
