The Toyota bZ4X has a greater than expected range, as confirmed in an official statement by the manufacturer. The entry-level trim of the SUV will be capable of up to 516 km (~321 miles) on a single charge. Customers in Europe can now pre-order the electric vehicle, with prices starting at £41,950.

Toyota has announced that the bZ4X is ready to launch in Europe, with a greater range than expected. The SUV will be the company’s first all-electric car and the primary model in its bZ (Beyond Zero) range.

As we previously reported, the entry-level front-wheel-drive model was expected to have a 402 km (~250 miles) range. Toyota has now revealed that the SUV will achieve up to 516 km (~321 miles) of range, thanks to the vehicle’s efficient motors and energy management.

The lower-end model will have an efficiency rating of 14.3 kWh/100 km (7.0 km/kWh). The all-wheel-drive model will have an efficiency of 15.8 kWh/100 km (6.3 km/kWh) and a 470 km (~292 miles) range. Earlier this year, its range was forecast as 354 km (~220 miles).

These new range numbers are the official, homologated WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) figures. The car will be powered by a 71.4 kWh battery which will have an optional extended care programme guaranteeing a 70% battery capacity after ten years or having been driven for 1,000,000 km (~ 621,371 miles).

Customers in Europe can now reserve the bZ4X, with prices starting at £41,950 (~US$55,106) for the entry-level Pure trim. Deliveries to customers are expected to begin in May 2022.
