Toyota introduced its new electric vehicle bZ4X


According to the statement made by Toyota, the bZ4X stands out as the first model of the bZ product range, which is the brand’s battery electric vehicles.

The production version, the bZ4X, whose design and technology was developed in accordance with the concept shown at the beginning of this year, became the first model of Toyota to develop battery-electric from the very beginning. The new model was also the first Toyota to have a platform developed specifically for battery electric vehicles.

With Toyota’s 25 years of battery technology experience in electric vehicles, world-leading quality, durability and reliability have also been achieved in the bZ4X model. The bZ4X can travel more than 450 kilometers on a single charge with a high-density lithium battery with a capacity of 71.4 kWh.

Powered by a 150 kW electric motor, the electric model produces 204 PS of power and 265 Nm of torque in its front-wheel drive version. 0-100 km/h acceleration is 8.4 seconds, and the maximum speed of bZ4X is 160 km/h. The all-wheel drive bZ4X has 217.5 PS and 336 Nm of torque and can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in just 7.7 seconds. The single pedal operation feature increases the energy regeneration of the brake, allowing the driver to accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator pedal.

Using its expertise in electric vehicles, Toyota has developed the battery to deliver 90 percent of original performance even after 10 years (240 thousand kilometers) of driving. The battery, which maintains its reliability even at sub-zero temperatures thanks to its efficient and effective heating system, can reach 80 percent capacity in around 30 minutes with the 150 kW fast charging system.

However, the driving range of the bZ4X can be maximized with the optional solar panel. These panels charge the vehicle’s battery by generating electricity from solar energy with zero emissions and zero cost. Toyota estimates that solar panels can store energy to provide an annual driving range of 1800 km. Solar panels can store energy while driving or parked.

The vehicle’s long wheelbase provides class-leading legroom for all passengers, as well as an assertive volume in the cargo area. With the seats in the normal position, a luggage capacity of 452 liters is offered.

Looking at the exterior dimensions of the Toyota bZ4X, it also reveals the design advantages brought by the e-TNGA platform. Compared to the RAV4, the bZ4X is 85 mm lower, has shorter front-rear overhangs and has 160 mm longer wheelbase than the RAV4. The vehicle’s general agility is also evident with its class-leading turning radius of 5.7 meters.

Toyota’s electric bZ4X is equipped with the third generation Toyota Safety Sense system. In addition, remote software updates can be made for the vehicle with the new multimedia system.
