Unveiling Toyota bZ4X: Real-world EV Review


The Toyota bZ4X, the world’s largest car company’s first EV, offers a smooth driving experience, but lacks a one-pedal drive mode and falls short on real-world range compared to competitors.

Why does it matter?

Despite its comfort and driving dynamics, the bZ4X’s range of 330 km and DC fast charging time of 38 minutes from 0 – 80% are not as impressive as other electric SUVs. The lack of storage space, EV integration with navigation, and convenience features further hinder its appeal.

How is it going to shape the future?

Toyota’s entry into the EV market with the bZ4X highlights its potential but also exposes room for improvement in range, charging speeds, and overall features. To compete with leading EV brands like Tesla, Kia, and Hyundai, Toyota will need to enhance future EV models to meet the evolving demands of electric vehicle consumers.
