New pure-EV launches range of electric vehicles from Toyota

Toyota has launched the bZ4X, the first in a series of cars from a new bZ - beyond Zero -  sub-brand of electric vehicles.

Based on a new e-TNGA platform developed by Toyota and Subaru, the bZ4X is a pure-electric cSUV, capable of covering more than 280 miles on a charge.

Due to be officially unveiled on 2nd December, the electric Toyota is similar in size to the RAV4, though lower, with a longer wheelbase and shorter overhangs.


Front-wheel drive models are powered by a 150 kW motor, and will complete the 0-62mph time in 8.4 seconds. All-wheel drive versions see that performance time drop to 7.7 seconds, with a slight boost on power.

Charging the 71.4 kWh battery will take around 30 minutes at 150 kW on a CCS charger. AC charging will launch with 6.6 kW on-board charger, but an 11 kW set-up will be introduced from the end of 2022.

Pricing and specifications will be announced closer to launch.
