Toyota Unveils All-Electric bZ4X
Nov. 1, 2021—Toyota on Friday unveiled what many consider to be the automaker's first all-electric vehicle.
The bZ4X electric SUV was debuted as a concept at the Shanghai Motor Show per a report from Electrek, and no specs or other details for global versions were provided.
Though Toyota has made all-electric vehicles for specific markets in the past, particularly China, the bZ4X will be the company's first vehicle to use a fully dedicated BEV platform and the first to be made available globally.
More details on a U.S. version are expected sometime later this month, but the vehicle will use a 71.4 kWh battery pack with an estimated maximum range of 310 miles for its front-wheel drive variant.
The bZ4X is expected to launch in Japan in the middle of next year with global markets to follow shortly after. More details on pricing and availability "are expected to be released in the coming months."
