The 2025 Toyota bZ is an all-electric SUV part of the Beyond Zero (bZ) brand. It is expected to be released in mid-2025. It will be built on the e-TNGA platform, enabling several characteristics, including a steer-by-wire system, all-wheel drive, improved visibility, and a regenerative braking system. The bZ4X will feature edgy styling that differentiates it from Toyota’s gasoline-powered SUVs. It will come standard with driver-assistance features, including pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-keeping assist, and automated emergency braking.
The battery of the Toyota bZ4X FWD has a total capacity of 71.4 kWh, with a usable capacity of 64 kWh. An estimated range of about 205 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The 2023 Toyota bZ4X has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $42,000, plus a destination charge of $1,215. The Limited trim starts at $46,700. Add another $2,080 to both figures for the second electric motor that facilitates all-wheel drive.
Toyota USA will let you pre-order or reserve the bZ4X soon, months before the electric SUV arrives in local dealers around mid-2025. A $500 refundable reservation deposit will be required. Your Toyota dealer will contact you to confirm your order after the initial phase. Unfortunately, the bZ4X no longer qualifies for the $7500 federal tax credit due to sales of its plug-in hybrids.
Overall, the bZ4X is an exciting new addition to the electric vehicle market and will be a popular choice for those looking for a reliable and efficient electric SUV.
