Toyota Launches ALL-NEW bZ4X BEV

Toyota BZ4X in Brisbane

The all-new Toyota bZ4X SUV has arrived in Australian showrooms, with Toyota’s first BEV introducing a new BEV-specific platform, the latest motor generator and battery technology, and advanced safety and connected technologies1.

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 e-TNGA platform gave designers the freedom to create an innovative BEV that embodies the inherent appeal of an SUV shape, while achieving impressive aerodynamic efficiency.

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.

Pricing – and a full-service lease

The FWD bZ4X is priced from $66,000 with the AWD bZ4X available from $74,900.2

As part of Toyota’s commitment to being a leader in mobility services, the bZ4X is also offered with a full-service lease option through Toyota Finance Australia.

Designed to alleviate potential anxieties of those venturing into the BEV for the first time, the full-service lease includes scheduled servicing and maintenance, mechanical repairs, replacement tyres, Roadside Assist, Toyota Comprehensive Insurance, and registration and compulsory third-party insurance, all for one single monthly payment.

 

Key model features

The front-wheel-drive (FWD) bZ4X is equipped with poly-ellipsoidal LED headlights, 20-inch alloy wheels, numerous convenience and safety details, heated side mirrors with auto power folding, power tailgate and privacy glass for rear side, quarter and back windows.

The interior features fabric and SofTex®3 (synthetic leather) trim, eight-way power adjustable driver seat, heated front seats, leather-accented steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, smart entry and start, four cupholders and eight bottle holders.

The latest Toyota multimedia technology is housed within a 12.3-inch touchscreen and is compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay®4  and wireless Android Auto™5.

Enhanced voice recognition using the “Hey, Toyota” command can control several functions such as “Open all windows”.

This multimedia suite is augmented by the latest Toyota Connected Services1 online features, including integration with the myToyota Connect smartphone app6, which is offered for a complimentary period of 12 months.

The bZ4X comes with BEV specific connected features such as charge station locators and charge management functionality within the myToyota Connect smartphone app6.

Over-the-air updates, cloud navigation and live traffic information are included.

The latest Toyota Safety Sense suite integrates a comprehensive array of safety technologies within a BEV structure designed to protect passengers, the battery and other vehicles and pedestrians.7

A pre-collision safety system can detect vehicles, motorcycles, cyclists (in daylight only) and pedestrians, including at intersections. Other features include emergency steering assist, lane trace assist, emergency driving stop system, road-sign assist (speed signs only) and parking support brake.7 The bZ4X is also equipped with active cruise control and seven SRS airbags.

The AWD bZ4X brings a higher level of standard features, including a roof spoiler, fixed panoramic roof, roof rails and a gloss black bonnet accent.

AWD interiors gain a JBL®3 premium sound system, Premium SofTex®3 seat trim, Qi-compatible 10W wireless charger8, ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, driver’s seat memory function and a kick sensor for the power tailgate.

Safety enhancements for the AWD include driver monitor, blind-spot monitor, safe exit assist, intelligent parking assist and panoramic view monitor.6

The AWD’s 212mm ground clearance9 and all-wheel drivetrain are leveraged by X-Mode off-road drive modes to enable benchmark off-road ability among BEV SUVs. X-Mode optimises traction for “Snow/Dirt” or “Deep Snow/Mud” conditions and incorporates Crawl Control and Downhill Assist Control.

The FWD model features a front-mounted e-Axle that combines the transaxle, motor, and inverter into an integrated, compact unit that produces outputs of up to 150kW and 266Nm. The AWD model uses front and rear 80kW e-Axles with maximum combined outputs of 160kW and 337Nm.

Providing the electrical energy is a 71.4kWh lithium-ion battery that is rigorously tested for 20 days before being fitted to a car.

FWD driving range is 535km10 at 128Wh/km, while the more powerful bZ4X AWD’s drive range is 485km11 at 141Wh/km.

European versions of the bZ4X which are tested on the WLTP cycle return a range of 436km at 168.9Wh/km for the FWD9 and 411km at 181.1Wh/km for the AWD10.

Six exterior colours are available: Ebony Black, Frosted White, Liquid Metal, Silver Rush, Feverish Red and Dynamic Blue. A two-tone treatment is available for the AWD with gloss black for the roof and A-pillars complementing the body colour.12

The bZ4X is covered by Toyota Warranty Advantage, which offers up to five-year unlimited kilometre coverage extending to seven-years on motor and driveline with log-book services.13

Toyota also offers capped-price servicing for the first five years/75,000km with each 12-month/15,000km service costing $180.14

10 Results achieved for bZ4X FWD automatic SUV electric in NEDC combined drive cycle energy consumption testing. Estimated distance of 535 kms based on consumption rate of 128Wh/km. Results produced in laboratory test conditions, using sample vehicles without fitment of accessories/customisation, & do not reflect real world driving. Figures should only be used for comparative purposes. 436 km range, achieved for European bZ4X FWD automatic SUV electric, is based on consumption rate from 168.9Wh/km using the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). Australian model has not been tested using WLTP test procedure.
