BZ4X 5 Stars

I have a 23' Limited and love it. Mine is a front FWD, listed for $51,700 paid $47,700. I bought it site unseen. It is a pleasure to drive. I was not looking for an EV but very pleased. Just know the 280 range is realistically 220 miles. When you turn the heat or A/C on it changes the range. That is all EVs. I have owned...

4.0

great and not for everyone

Pros very comfortable to drive and quiet feels like a solid heavy suv unlike most electric suvs has xmode for snow and deep snow modes very spacious inside for an ev Cons Doesnt accelerate as fast as other evs mostly cause of the weight range isnt high and charging isnt fast if any heat button is on range goes down by 70 50k...

2023 Toyota bZ4X review: Our expert's take

By Aaron Bragman

The verdict: If you like the simple, no-brainer operation of the Toyota RAV4 Prime or Venza hybrid, the easy-to-use bZ4X SUV is a natural step into pure-electric life.

Versus the competition: It doesn’t have the range or charging speed of competitors like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 or Kia EV6, nor does it offer as much info on what the vehicle is doing at a given time, but it feels well matched against the Volkswagen ID.4 for practicality and is more comfortable than the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

There seem to be two emerging schools of thought on how to make a mainstream electric SUV. The first says, “Make it a spaceship that has all kinds of whiz-bang technology, crazy styling, magic holo-screen effects and enough information displays to simulate the bridge of the Starship Enterprise.” Vehicles that fall into that category are the Ioniq 5 and EV6, as well as the Mustang Mach-E, to some extent. But then there’s the school that says, “We should make the experience as invisible as possible, making the electric vehicle feel as close to a conventional gasoline car as possible.” This is the strategy Chevrolet took with the Bolt EV, and what VW seems to be trying with the ID.4. And after having driven the new 2023 Toyota bZ4X (ugh, that name), I can attest that this is exactly the strategy that Toyota is pursuing with its first-ever 50-state-available EV as well.
