Toyota BZ4X : At the 2023 Auto Exhibition, Toyota unveiled its first-ever electric vehicle. It is now anticipated that the Toyota BZ4X, which is offered in select U.S. states, would soon reach Indian markets. There were no physical differences between the display at the Auto Expo 2023 and the global edition.

The Toyota bZ4X is offered in two variations, a single-motor and a dual-motor version, internationally. An installed 120-volt or 240-volt charger at home can be used to recharge the 71.4 kWh battery that powers both models. The single-motor type with front-wheel drive is anticipated to have a range of 400–410 km on a single charge, but the dual-motor variant with all-wheel drive has a range of about 360 km. This can be regarded as an ordinary range in terms of range and nothing special.
The addition of the e-TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform, a 12.3 multimedia touchscreen display that supports Apple car play and Android auto, the option of heated seats, wireless charging pads, and keyless entry are some of the standout features of the Toyota bZ4X. Toyota claims that these features help to make the overall riding experience of this car more comfortable.
Availability in India
Toyota has not provided any information about the release of this vehicle, which is unfortunate. Although it was displayed at the Auto Expo 2023, there is currently no official announcement or plan indicating that this EV will be released in India.
