Ginny Says

“Toyota’s first proper pure electric car brings expertise gained from years of partial electrification. The problem is the wheels fall off and there is no sign of a fix.”

Tom Says

“It’s as much about the package and lease deals and lack of worry as it is about the car. Car is very nice, efficient, no blowing off of socks, but it’s not designed to. ”

Got questions? We've put together the most frequently-asked topics below. If there's something we haven't answered here or in the review then let us know on our contact page.

How long is the range between charges from a Toyota bZ4x?

With the single motor version the official range is 317 miles - depending on the spec - or an all-wheel drive version with two motors at either end has a possible 286 miles of range.

How much does the Toyota bZ4x cost?

In the UK, you’re looking at four grades: Pure, Motion, Vision and the Premiere Edition. That’s a spread of between £41,950 and £51,550, with the spec and optioning pretty much as you might expect. Pure and Motion get 18-inch alloys, the top-tier two get 20s, the Premiere Edition extra bits, including a ‘SkyView’ panoramic roof.

Can the Toyota bZ4x tow?

Yes - but only up to 750kg, so it's a small trailer or cosy caravan only. The four-wheel-drive version is usefully good off road though, so you won't have trouble getting off the campsite.

How long is the warranty of the Toyota bZ4x?

The ‘Toyota Relax’ extended warranties kicks in if you have the car serviced at a Toyota dealer and offers a truckload of peace of mind. Try 10 years on the battery and a million kilometres if you get it checked at a dealer regularly.

How fast can the Toyota bZ4x charge?

Early cars will only have 6.6kW AC charging, but cars produced from later in 2022 will all have 11kW. And all cars get 150kW DC charging from a more common CCS2 plug - no CHAdeMO charger here, unlike the Lexus UX300e - so you’re looking at half an hour from 10-80% on a powerful enough public charger, and about nine and a half hours on a home wallbox.
