Toyota bZ4X Quick details

Launching in its latest global specification, the bZ4X draws on more than a quarter of a century of Toyota leadership in hybrid vehicles.

The bZ4X represents another important step in the multi-pathway approach to electrification that includes a range of technologies

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the bZ4X offers capability, practicality, and value for those suited to a BEV lifestyle.

“The bZ4X is not just an electric car; it’s the foundation for the next phase of our electrification strategy that hits a sweet spot with its mid-size SUV dimensions, space and functionality,” Mr Hanley said.

“As the first Toyota BEV, it will accelerate our multi-pathway approach that’s designed to help our customers lower their tailpipe carbon emissions while leaving no-one behind,” he said.

The bZ4X is the first Toyota in Australia to use the new BEV-dedicated e-TNGA platform, which has been designed and optimised for a new range of electric vehicles.

It integrates the battery and motor generator into the vehicle’s structure, providing extra rigidity and a low centre of gravity for stable driving dynamics.

This approach allows the wheels to be pushed further outward to the front and rear, leaving more room for passengers within the vehicle’s footprint.

It also offers the versatility of front or all-wheel-drive traction – the latter providing benchmark off-road capability among all-electric SUVs.

The bZ4X is the first model in Australia to display Toyota’s distinctive ‘hammerhead’ frontal design theme, where the bonnet surface continues to the nose and extends to each corner.

Inside, the bZ4X makes the most of the improved passenger space afforded by the e-TNGA platform, benefiting visibility, passenger and cargo space, practicality and comfort.
