Hardly a day after its debut in Thailand, the Toyota bZ4X EV has now been launched in Indonesia. The vehicle comes in a single trim version that can also be had via the Kinto subscription service.
The Indonesian-spec bZ4X is quite different from the one launched in Thailand. While it may feature the same 71.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, power is only sent to a front-mounted electric motor rated at 201 hp (150 kW) and 266 Nm of torque.
In comparison, the Thai-spec bZ4X is AWD with two electric motors that provide a total system output of 215 hp (160 kW) and 338 Nm. However, the lack of AWD give the Indonesian-spec bZ4X an advantage in terms of range, which is 500 km (WLTP) compared to 411 km (WLTP) for the AWD version sold in Thailand.

Charging options remain similar with the bZ4X supporting AC charging (Type 2 connection) at up to 6.6 kW as well as DC fast charging (CCS2 connection) at up to 150 kW, the latter allowing the battery to get from a 0-80% state of charge in just 30 minutes. As in Thailand, the battery is covered by the same 8-year, 160,000-km warranty.
In terms of equipment, the Indonesian-spec Toyota bZ4X gets 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic roof, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a wireless phone charger, LED exterior lighting, T Intouch telematics and an 8-way powered driver’s seat.
Safety and driver assistance features include 8 airbags, ABS, EBD, hill start assist, traction control and Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 suite which consists of dynamic radar cruise control, a blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert, a panoramic view monitor, pre-collision safety (autonomous emergency braking), lane departure alert, lane keep assist, and assisted parking.
The Toyota bZ4X has already been introduced in Vietnam, Thailand and now Indonesia while the Malaysian debut is expected to take place towards the beginning of 2023.
