Toyota has announced pricing for the bZ4x SUV, its first purpose-built electric car.
Sales of the new model are expected to commence in 2022.
The all-new model will be offered in three equipment grades plus a special, high-specification Premiere Edition version to mark its debut.
The Pure grade is the entry point to the line-up, featuring 18-inch alloy wheels, eight-inch infotainment display, seven-inch digital instrument cluster, reversing camera, keyless entry and a climate control system with remote operation function.
The bZ4X Pure will be offered exclusively with front-wheel drive.
Stepping up to the bZ4X Motion introduces a rear spoiler, rear privacy glass, power tailgate, parking sensors, heated front seats and a wireless charging tray is provided.
The Motion is priced from £45,750 with front-wheel-drive or £48,350 with all-wheel-drive.
Range-topping Vision grade includes 20-inch alloy wheels, Remote Controlled Parking Assist, synthetic leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel. It will also come with a digital key, allowing the vehicle owner to provide access to the vehicle to others by means of a smartphone app.
Prices for the Vision start at £47,650 with front-wheel-drive or £50,250 with al-wheel-drive.
The Premiere Edition model provides all the features of the Vision grade together with a nine-speaker JBL premium sound system a panoramic sunroof. It comes as standard with X-MODE all-wheel drive and is exclusively available via the Toyota online retail service.
The bZ4x is the first in a new range of electric Toyotas to be launched under its bZ sub-brand.
It’s built on a bespoke electric vehicle (EV) platform, co-developed with Subaru, which incorporates the battery as an integral part of the chassis.
Toyota says the bZ4x will provide a range of 280 miles from its 71.4kWh battery and be able to charge to 80% in half an hour using a 150kW charger. A roof-mounted solar panel will provide additional charge to the battery.
Front-wheel-drive models serve up 204PS, while the all-wheel-drive version has 217PS.
The new platform allows for a longer wheelbase – 160mm longer than a RAV4 – to improve passenger space and dynamic capability. It will provide high levels of safety and ride and handling quality, according to Toyota.
