Toyota bZ4X Electric SUV Has A Wing Steering And A Solar Roof


Toyota’s first-ever fully electric vehicle, the Toyota bZ4X was unveiled as a concept in April 2021. Not many details were shared, though. In late October last year, the futuristic-looking SUV was finally revealed and Toyota now has launch dates set. The refreshing reveal was met with awe for the very fact that it would not be a hybrid, as Toyota’s many vehicles are, but for the first time the company would launch an all-electric car. 

The idea behind Toyota bZ4X

With the Toyota bZ4X, the manufacturer aims to take a step forward towards carbon neutrality. Toyota’s bZ series will adopt a BEV-dedicated platform that aims for a value ‘beyond Zero’. With the first model, we look forward to seeing what Toyota has in store for our home planet. 

The features

Toyota has proudly declared that with its bZ series, its focus is on safety and peace of mind. The vehicle will be available in two variants: a front-wheel drive with a single electric motor of 150kW that offers 201 horsepower, and an all-wheel drive with two 80kW motors offering 215 horsepower. The latter will have a speed of 0-to-62 mph in 7.7 seconds, the former  0-60mph in 8.4 seconds.

Toyota bZ4X will come with a 71.4 kWh battery, which will give a range of 280 miles on a single charge. The special thing about the power source is that it will be the company’s first water;cooled battery, and Toyota has developed a number of ways in its vehicle to avoid battery degradation. 

The takeaways: a solar roof and wing-shaped steering

The most exciting features of the bZ4X are undoubtedly the solar roof and the steering. Seems like even with ordinary pick when it comes to battery, the company has made sure its SUV will have extraordinary features.

The optional solar panel roof will harness power over time, and in a year should enable 1,118 driving miles. 

Inside, the optional steering wheel that is wing-shaped is an absolute delight. Owing to the well-reasoned design, the steering wheel won’t get in the way of the 7-inch instrument panel.
