Toyota has recently announced pricing in Canada for their upcoming all-electric bZ4X SUV.
The bZ4X will be the first vehicle to be launched under Toyota’s bZ series, which stands for “Beyond Zero”. Toyota is planning to launch 70 electrified vehicles globally by 2025, with 15 of them being BEVs (battery-electric vehicles).
“Toyota is a leader in electrified vehicle sales – in Canada and around the world. The new Toyota bZ4X adds to our already impressive lineup of diverse vehicle offerings available to a variety of Canadian drivers. More, the battery electric bZ4X also completes Toyota’s robust portfolio of electrified models – including self-charging hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “More than a BEV, the bZ4X is a capable and versatile SUV, featuring an all-new, all-wheel-drive system for added all-weather confidence. As such, the bZ4X is a vehicle designed to offer Canadians a new, advanced, zero-emissions choice in Canada’s largest market segment.”
If the bZ4X seems a bit familiar looking, that’s because the vehicle was designed in collaboration with Subaru, which will also be launching their own EV soon, the Solterra SUV.
The bZ4X comes in both Front Wheel Drive (on the L, LE trims) and All-Wheel Drive (on the XLE, XLE Technology Package). For size, Toyota is aiming the bZ4X in the compact SUV segment with it’s 4,690 mm length and wheelbase at 2,850 mm.
Inside, you’ll be getting 1,138 mm of legroom for the front seat and 1,212 mm for passengers in the rear. And cargo space is 784L behind the second row.
The Toyota bZ4X and it’s Subaru and Lexus siblings will be using the e-TNGA dedicated platform that can output 201hp on the FWD model and 214hp on the AWD.
Battery range is around 406 KM on the FWD model and 367 KM on the AWD. When you do need to charge up, the bZ4X support DC fast chargers via the CCS charging port.
For infotainment, the bZ4X has a 12.3-inch touchscreen on the LE and above and a 8-inch on the L trim. The infotainment system will get Over-the-Air (OTA) updates like other EVs these days.
There’s also support for wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and with each new bZ4X, you’ll get a three-year trial for Toyota’s Connected Service.
This service brings Intelligent Assistant that allows for “Hey, Toyota” voice control, Cloud Navigation that can download the latest maps, traffic and routes, and Destination Assist connects you to a 24/7 live agent assistant.
The vehicle also feature’s the latest Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) system that brings a pre-collision system that supports Low-Light Cyclist Detection, Daytime Motorcyclist Detection and Guardrail Detection.
There’s also Blind Spot Monitor, Safe Exit Assist and a Top-Mounted Meter that monitors how often the driver takes their eyes off the road.
