A new all-wheel drive SUV from Toyota has made its production model debut, dubbed the bZ4X.

The bZ4X is the first model to be released under Toyota’s new “bZ” series of battery-electric vehicles. It features aerodynamic styling built upon Toyota’s BEV-dedicated e-TNGA platform, allowing for a lightweight body and battery cross-framing structure and aiding in the bZ4X’s manufacturer-estimated 250 mile range. Compatible with high-output chargers, the bZ4X is capable of an 80 percent charge within one hour.

Powering the vehicle is a new AWD system with X-MODE. According to Toyota, this combination allows for “an exhilarating, yet comfortable, driving experience.” A new Grip-Control system leverages motor drive characteristics to allow for better on road and off road capabilities.

Inside, the bZ4X offers a driver-focused design with a unique instrument panel and Multi-Information Display (MID). Along with the soundproofing glass comes a panoramic roof allowing more light into the cabin. Toyota also hinted at USB-A and C ports conveniently placed around the interior.

Drivers will be aided by a suite of intuitive tech. As such, the bZ4X will be the first to feature the latest Toyota Safety Sense package. The latest rendition of TSS expands the detection range of the millimeter wave radar and monocular camera, as well as improves pre-collision systems by way of Low-Light Cyclist Detection, Daytime Motorcyclist Detection and Guardrail Detection. Lane tracking has also been improved.

The bZ4X joins Toyota’s lineup of hybrid, plug-in hybrids and battery electric vehicles which make up 24 percent of Toyota’s US sales. It is expected to reach dealer lots in mid-2022.
