Toyota Provides Additional Information on the bZ4x Electric Crossover

  • Toyota has unveiled the technical specifications for its upcoming bZ4x electric crossover, which will go into production in the middle of 2022. More information about the United States will be available next month.
  • It is powered by a battery pack with a capacity of approximately 64.0 kWh and is available in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations with up to 215 horsepower.
  • By 2022, we anticipate that the bZ4X will have an EPA range of between 200 and 230 miles when it makes its way to the United States.

A global specification sheet for Toyota's new electric crossover, the bZ4x, has been released, giving us an idea of what our version will have to offer. The bZ4x will go on sale in the United States in the middle of next year, according to Toyota. We anticipate that the majority of these details will be the same when the United States version is unveiled in November. Toyota anticipates that seven more electric BZ (for Beyond Zero) models will be introduced by 2025.

The bZ4x is roughly the same size as Toyota's best-selling vehicle, the RAV4. Compared to the gas-powered crossover, it has a longer wheelbase of 6.3 inches and is slightly longer and lower overall. Subaru collaborated with Toyota to develop the e-TNGA electric vehicle platform, which will also serve as the foundation for the upcoming Subaru Solterra crossover SUV. Even though the photos of the bZ4x shown here are still of a prototype model, we don't expect the wacky styling of the final production model to differ significantly from the photos shown here.

The bZ4x is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of approximately 64.0 kWh, and the single-motor version has front-wheel drive and 201 horsepower. A dual-motor, all-wheel-drive configuration generates 215 horsepower in this configuration. Toyota claims that all-wheel-drive models will accelerate from zero to sixty-seven miles per hour in 7.7 seconds. Based on the WLTP range targets Toyota announced, we anticipate the EPA range for the front-drive model to be approximately 230 miles and the all-wheel-drive model to be approximately 200 miles. That would put it behind the Ford Mustang Mach-E (which has an estimated range of up to 305 miles according to the EPA) and the Tesla Model Y. (up to 326 miles). Toyota claims that the bZ4X can recharge its battery to 80 percent of its capacity in 30 minutes when using a 150-kW fast charger. Solar panels on the roof will be available, and Toyota claims that they will be able to recharge the vehicle's driving range by just over 1000 miles per year.

Yoke-style steering wheels will be available, similar to those found on the new Tesla Model S and Model X, but there will be one significant difference in Toyota's implementation that will make it more palatable to drivers. This vehicle's total steering wheel rotation is limited to 150 degrees. A steer-by-wire system, which turns the wheels in an appropriate amount based on driver input, ensures that you never have to go hand-over-hand when maneuvering in tight quarters. In addition to using voice controls, Toyota's new infotainment system displays on a large center-mounted touchscreen, and the company claims that the system will improve over time as a result of over-the-air updates.

Toyota bZ4x production is scheduled to begin in the middle of 2022, which means the new electric crossover should be available for purchase by the end of the summer.
