What Car? says...
Believe it or not, the Toyota bZ4X SUV is the Japanese car maker’s first modern battery electric vehicle (BEV).
It’s surprising because Toyota was a trailblazer for electrified tech in the mid-Noughties, when its first-generation Prius hybrid helped push the entire automotive industry towards an electrified future. Plus, rival car makers have been selling electric vehicles for years.
Those range figures are respectable but not groundbreaking. While an entry-level Skoda Enyaq iV has a 256-mile range, the Kia EV6 and Tesla Model Y Long Range can both manage more than 300 miles officially.
