The 2023 Toyota bZ4X SUV Will Cover More Than 300 Miles on a Full Charge

The 2023 Toyota bZ4X is about to land on the market and range estimates are promising

  • WLTP numbers say up to 317 miles of range with FWD versions, and up to 285 miles for AWD ones.

  • The bZ4X SUV is Toyota’s first EV as part of the Beyond Zero (bZ) electric vehicle family.

Range continues to be the defining marker for EVs. Even though most automakers have cracked the 250-mile (400 km) range barrier, more always makes the EV better. Homologated WLTP test figures have been released for the new 2023 Toyota bZ4X and they are promising.

As we know, the Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) figures are typically more generous than the EPA’s but even so, the numbers are good. The FWD or single-motor iteration will achieve an estimated 317 miles (approximately 510 km) of range on a single charge. Meanwhile, the AWD dual-motor version is expected to return up to 285 miles (approximately 458 km) of range.

The new bZ4X is assembled on Toyota’s dedicated new eTNGA EV platform. Toyota’s first mass-produced EV is slated to arrive in North America later this year, perhaps as early as late summer.
