The Toyota bZ4x is the Japanese car maker’s first all-electric car – a well-rounded, capable, practical family SUV. Although it’s the first, you’ll get the decades of engineering experience from the brand that pioneered electrification with the hybrid Prius, so reliability shouldn’t be an issue. Want to know what the name means? bZ stands for Beyond Zero, 4 is the size, while X means it’s a crossover and has off-road abilities. Expect more Toyotas with a variation of this name in the future.
The Toyota bZ4x majors on being usable every day, all day – although we think it looks pretty smart outside, too. There’s loads of legroom in the cabin for front and rear passengers alike, and the driving position is comfortable. A boot of 452-litres isn’t class-leading but is more than big enough for even the bigger family holiday road trips. To keep the family safe, you’ll get Toyota’s suite of T-Mate safety systems, which include rear cameras, parking sensors, traffic alerts and auto-braking.
Performance and range
The bZ4x is good on the road but also capable off it, so if you do need to go off-piste then the Toyota is a strong option compared to many SUVs, especially the four-wheel drive version using the X-MODE setting. The four-wheel drive mode also lowers the 0-62mph time from 7.5 to 6.9 seconds. Across the range is a 71kWh battery, which delivers up to 300 miles depending on if you’ve gone for the four-wheel drive model (range is slightly lower than front wheel drive). For those charging on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway, then you’ll be able to enjoy maximum charging speeds of 150kW.
Toyota bZ4X Premier Edition X-MODE AWD
There are a wealth of leasing rivals to the Toyota bZ4x so it comes down to what you want to prioritise. For style and tech, then look at the Hyundai Ioniq 5 or Renault Megane E-Tech, and for all-round versatility then you can’t go wrong with the Skoda Enyaq iV and the Nissan Ariya.
