Charging the Toyota bZ4X electric crossover

Everything drivers need to know about the Toyota bZ4X

Toyota’s first electric vehicle (EV) available throughout North America, the bZ4X is a compact crossover introduced in 2022 as the electric equivalent to the popular Toyota RAV4 Prime. The bZ4X is the automaker’s long-awaited entrant to compete in the competitive electric crossover segment against the Nissan Ariya, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6 and the Tesla Model Y.


Sharing its e-TNGA platform with the Subaru Solterra, the bZ4X comes in front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) with the latter sharing the same Subaru Symmetrical AWD dual-motor system as the standard Solterra. All models come with Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 driver safety system, 12.3” infotainment display and interior space similar to the larger Toyota Land Cruiser.

Federal EV tax credits

Starting in 2022, EVs and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) became eligible for federal tax credits up to $7,500 for new EVs and PHEVs and up to $4,000 for used clean vehicles that met certain battery production and materials requirements. While the Toyota bZ4X qualified for the federal tax credit at launch in 2022, it lost qualification from 2023 onwards as it is built and imported from Japan.

Charging the Toyota bZ4X

The bZ4X is available in two configurations: a FWD model with a 71.4 kWh battery and an AWD model with a slightly larger 72.8 kWh battery. While all models can utilize 6.6 kW Level 2 charging, DC fast charging capabilities vary with FWD models having access to 150 kW charging and AWD models can utilize 100 kW.


Charging at home is one of the main benefits of owning an EV, and having a smart home charger like the JuiceBox 32 will allow you to charge from empty to full in 10 hours or less.

DC fast charging: CCS Combo

The Toyota bZ4X uses a standard CCS Combo port located next to the driver’s side front wheel well providing either 150 kW DC fast charging speeds in the FWD model or 100 kW in the AWD model. By utilizing a public DC fast charger like the Enel X Way JuicePumpTM 150 kW, bZ4X owners can charge up to 80% as quick as 30 minutes for FWD or 35 minutes for AWD models.


All Toyota Group brands, including Lexus, will transition their charging ports to the North American Charging Standard (NACS), being standardized by SAE as J3400, beginning in 2025. Enel X Way chargers will be compatible with SAE J3400 in 2024.
