Toyota BZ4X 2024: Australian price and specs


Pricing and the full list of specifications for Toyota’s first all-electric vehicle in Australia has been unveiled 

Toyota has revealed its first full-electric vehicle, known as the BZ4X midsize SUV, will start at $66,000 before on-road costs in Australia.

The lineup will consist of two grades, an entry-level front-wheel drive, simply called BZ4X, and a more highly specified all-wheel-drive option, called BZ4X AWD, which carries the heftier $74,900 sticker price.

It comes just a week after Subaru priced the BZ4X’s closely related but standard AWD-equipped Solterra twin from $69,990 in a shock $8000 drop from the previously announced figure, kicking off somewhat of a price war.

The pair will soon slot into an increasingly competitive electric midsize SUV market, led by the Tesla Model Y (from $65,400) along with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (from $65,000) and Kia EV6 (from $72,590).

The cost of the fully-electric BZ4X is a significant step up over the most expensive RAV4, the AWD Edge hybrid, that is priced at $58,360 before on-road costs.

Toyota is also seeking to tackle customer concerns over depreciation values of EVs in the long term by offering a three-year full service lease, which covers the cost of vehicle use, maintenance, tyres, roadside assist, registration and insurance all included in monthly payments.

Toyota BZ4X range and charging

Starting with the FWD model, the BZ4X has a stated range of 436km according to the typically more accurate WLTP testing protocols. The AWD model is limited to 411km claimed.

Both grades make use of a 64kWh lithium-ion battery (gross size 71.4kWh).

Once the battery runs flat, both drivetrain options can be topped up at speeds of up to 150kW on a DC fast charger, which Toyota says should take the state of charge from 10 to 80 percent in approximately 30 minutes. 

Home-style AC charging is a fairly impressive 11kW, which should take the battery from flat to full in around seven hours.

The entry-level FWD BZ4X is armed with a 150kW/266Nm motor on the front axle, while the dual-motor AWD implements a 80kW/168.5Nm motor at each end, providing a total system output of  160kW/337Nm.
