While the range of the Toyota bZ4X can cover a distance of up to 460 km on a single charge.
For the price of the Toyota bZ4X, Paulan reports that this electric car will be available in Malaysia in 2023 and is priced at RM238,000 or around Rp. 816.5 million for the Pure variant.
Unlike the Motion variant with more specifications advance sold for RM259,000 or around Rp.888.5 million.
For the initial production of the Toyota bZ4X, it will start in April 2022. Then, the fastest sales will be in May or June 2022.
However, the Toyota bZ4X will not be sold in Japan on the grounds that the price there will be high and Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (SPKLU) are still rare.
Reportedly, electric vehicles are rare in the used car market in Japan. That’s because battery damage reduces resale value.
Therefore, Toyota will offer to consumers through the Kinto service. The Toyota bZ4X will also be available to enterprise customers via leasing others, including Rent-a-Lease dealers.
