Toyota bZ4X Launches in Indonesia Tomorrow, Here are the Leaked Specifications


Toyota bZ4X launches in Indonesia tomorrow Thursday (10/11/2022). This model will be the second Toyota-Astra Motor (TAM) full battery electric car sold in Indonesia after the Lexus UX 300e. What are the leaked specifications for the Toyota bZ4X electric car?

According to information received by detikOto, the Indonesian version of the Toyota bZ4X will have around 201 hp of power and 226 Nm of torque. This electric car gets a battery with a capacity of 71.4 kWh, with 0-80% charging for 9-10 hours (normal charging) and 0-80% 30 minutes (fast charging).

Regarding engine and battery performance, the Toyota bZ4X can reportedly accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 8.3 seconds. This electric car can also travel quite a distance, which reaches 500 km.

A little comparison with the bZ4X units sold in Japan, comes in two types, namely FWD (Front Wheel Drive) and AWD (All Wheel Drive). The FWD variant can cover a distance of 500 km, while the AWD type can cover a distance of 460 km.

The Toyota bZ4X FWD type is equipped with a single electric motor mounted on the front axle. The electric motor has a maximum power of 201 hp. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h can be completed in just 8.4 seconds.

While AWD presents two electric motors on the front and rear axle. Each of them can produce 107hp with a combined output of 215hp. Even though it is 85 kg heavier, the Toyota bZ4X AWD can accelerate faster, 0-100 km/h in 7.7 seconds.

Previously, Toyota sent out official invitations to media crews for the launch of the bZ4X electric car. This car will launch on Thursday (10/11/2022).

“Dear media friends, we invite you to launch the Toyota All New bZ4X,” Toyota wrote in the invitation.

Previously, Toyota had exhibited the bZ4X at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2022. TAM Marketing Director Anton Jimmi Suwandy at the time said that the presence of the bZ4X was an indicator that the first Japanese brand electric car would be sold in Indonesia.

“The bZ4X at the GIIAS exhibition is still a display, but in the future we will have talked to the principal. So we will continue to study it to introduce it to the Indonesian market,” said Anton last August.

The Toyota bZ4X has been used in Indonesia, but as the operational vehicle for state guests at the G20 Summit in Bali on 15-16 November 2022. TAM was recorded as lending around 41 bZ4X units and 102 Lexus UX 300e units for use by ministerial-level state officials during the Summit G20 Bali.
