Bz4x is the official name of Toyota’s first battery electric vehicle. The BZ4X is not an experiment. It is the company’s first mass-market all-electric vehicle and the first of 15 vehicles it plans to introduce globally by 2025. Toyota bZ4X was introduced with its worldwide launch on October 29, 2021.
The bZ4X offers a range of 450 kilometers thanks to its 71.4 kWh lithium batteries. These batteries were integrated into the chassis of the vehicle. The 150 kW electric motor in the front-wheel drive version can produce 204 hp and 265 Nm of torque. The model, which has a maximum speed of 160 km / h, reaches 100 km / h in 8.4 seconds. The bZ4X, which has an all-wheel drive system, has 217 hp and 336 Nm of torque. It reaches 0-100 km/h in 7.7 seconds, 0.7 seconds faster than the other version. The single-pedal driving feature increases the energy regeneration of the brake, allowing the driver to accelerate and decelerate with only the accelerator pedal.
The range of the vehicle can be maximized with optional solar panels. These panels charge the vehicle’s battery by generating electricity from solar energy with zero emissions and zero cost. The Japanese manufacturer states that these panels can store energy to offer a range of 1800 kilometers per year. At the same time, solar panels can store energy while driving.
Starting with the 2019 RAV4, the automaker seems to have returned to exterior design with many sharp bends and angles, such as folded origami paper creations.
The driver information display is located well behind and slightly above the steering wheel for a clear view
