This is Toyota 2024 bZ4X Electric SUV: Pricing, Range

Toyota has released pricing and range details for the highly anticipated 2024 bZ4X, the automaker’s first mass-market electric SUV. The bZ4X will start at an MSRP of $43,070 for the base XLE front-wheel drive model and top out at $47,180 for the all-wheel drive Limited trim before processing fees.

The XLE front-wheel drive model is EPA-rated for up to 252 miles of range on a full charge, making it competitive with EVs like the Nissan Ariya and Kia EV6. Adding all-wheel drive drops the XLE’s range to 228 miles. The more luxurious Limited trim is rated for 236 miles in front-wheel drive form and 222 miles with AWD. 

All 2024 bZ4X models come standard with DC fast charging capability through an integrated CCS1 connector, allowing for rapid charging along public networks when out and about. At home, the 7.6 kW onboard charger can replenish the battery from low to full in around 9.5 hours using a 240V Level 2 charger. Toyota is also offering discounted installation of ChargePoint home charging stations through its dealers to further ease the transition to electric driving.

As an extra incentive for customers in the launch year, Toyota is providing new bZ4X buyers and lessees with one year of free public charging sessions from the EVgo nationwide fast charging network. With over 800 fast charging locations across 34 states, EVgo is one of the largest public DC fast charging providers in the country.  

The 2024 bZ4X is Toyota’s first EV built on a dedicated battery electric platform and promises engaging, futuristic styling coupled with the ride height, interior roominess and cargo flexibility expected from an SUV. The bZ4X will start arriving at Toyota dealers nationwide in January 2024 with a competitive combination of pricing, range and standard charging features as the brand seeks to attract mainstream EV buyers.

Our Thoughts

With a starting MSRP of $43,070, the bZ4X is priced similarly to the Tesla Model Y but offers less range, topping out at 252 miles in the base XLE trim versus 330 miles in the Model Y. The bZ4X also fails to qualify for the $7,500 federal EV tax credit due to Toyota’s lack of remaining credits, putting it at a disadvantage. This means Tesla is cheaper than Toyota. This is the day I never saw coming.
