Toyota has announced production of the bZ4X, the first car to be built on its dedicated battery-electric platform. The bZ4X will have a targeted range of 310 miles in the FWD model and 285 miles in the AWD model. When it comes to performance, the car will get from 0-62 in 8.4 seconds in the FWD model and 0-62 in 7.7 seconds in the AWD model. The car is also compatible with 150kW charging systems, allowing for fast charge times of 0-80% in just 30 minutes.
One of the most unique features is the One-motion grip steering wheel, a yoke-like wheel that reduces the need to change grips when steering and it also adds more legroom and gives you more freedom with your driving position. Interior tech will include cloud-powered navigation, voice-controlled functionality that can control features like the wipers and A/C, and digital key support for locking and starting the car with your smartphone.
The bZ4X will launch worldwide in mid-2022.
