2023 Toyota BZ4X Review: Radically Different But Underachieving

2023 Toyota BZ4X Review: Radically Different But Underachieving

The BZ4X is Toyota’s attempt to move its EV sales ‘beyond zero’ and, this time, it is available in all 50 States

Someone must have told Toyota that electric vehicles are supposed to be different. For its first dedicated EV, the company applied that lesson with blacked-out fenders, a fabric-upholstered dashboard, an inscrutable gear selector, and an alphabet-soup name.

The result is the 2023 Toyota bZ4X — the “bZ” standing for a new all-electric “beyond zero” subbrand. At the same time, the bZ4X is more “normal” than many other leading EVs. It focuses on a smooth, quiet ride over explosive power and sporty handling. And despite its quirks, the Toyota’s interior is more plush than ultramodern.

Priced from $42,000 before a $7,500 federal tax credit, the bZ4X is a front-wheel-drive-based crossover that slots between the compact and mid-size segments. Toyota co-developed it with Subaru, which will sell a near-clone of the bZ4X as the Solterra. We just spent a week in a preproduction bZ4X to see how it fits into the fast-growing electric crossover segment.

Last year, Jeep stole our hearts with ‘The Middle’ ad, and the year before that, GMC brought out the ‘Quite Revolution’ in the form of the reincarnated Hummer – with a new spirit, of course.

This year, automakers have been a little more proactive and many of them have come out with Super Bowl commercials. The 56th American Football Championship is scheduled for 13th February, and here are the car commercials that are already released:

Nearly 9 Out Of 10 Cars Sold In This Country Were EVs

This nation has embraced EVs much more than everyone else

Electric vehicle (EV) sales in the United States still represent a drop in the bucket. Based on the data released by Cox Automotive, 487,460 EVs were sold in 2021.
