Toyota’s new electric SUV leads the charge into the electric future for the Japanese automaker. The Toyota bZ4X Limited AWD SUV may be a better deal than you think.

The 2023 Toyota bZ4X Limited AWD is much cheaper with tax incentives

The 2023 Toyota bZ4X Limited AWD starts at $48,780. It’s eligible for a $7,500 federal electric vehicle tax credit. Soon the tax credit will be phased out because of sales.

The federal government only grants automakers tax credit eligibility for a limited time period based on how many EVs and PHEVs they sell. After the tax incentive, the bZ4X Limited AWD could be much closer to $41,280. This price is a steal because of the Limited AWD’s many standard features. It’s the best version of the bZ4X Toyota has to offer, and the tax incentive makes it affordable to the average consumer.

The bz4X Limited AWD is loaded with standard features

The bZ4X Limited AWD comes standard with a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It includes SofTex-trimmed seats, heated and ventilated front seats, and front and rear ambient floor lighting.

The electric SUV also features a smart key system, digital key compatibility, and a heated leather-trimmed steering wheel. It comes with a chrome window trim, a foot-activated power liftgate, and a color-keyed center bumper.

The Limited AWD also includes wireless smartphone charging, a seven-inch multi-information display, and a 12-volt power outlet. It features a Bird’s Eye View Camera and Downhill Assist Control as well. The bZ4X Limited AWD is the most capable bZ4X trim. The electric SUV utilizes Subaru’s X-Mode terrain management system, so it should be able to tackle mild off-road trails.

Toyota is offering free charging for the bZ4X

Toyota is doing its best to make the bz4X as sweet of a deal as possible. According to Roadshow by CNET, the bZ4X comes with a year of free fast charging at EVgo charging stations. Imagine going from paying high gas prices to paying nothing at all to recharge your bZ4X.

Why is the 2023 Subaru Solterra More Expensive Than the Toyota bZ4X?

The Toyota bZ4X Limited AWD is a great small family SUV. It combines plenty of modern tech with a sleek, innovative design and decent performance specs.

If you’re looking to dive into the world of electric vehicles, the bZ4X Limited AWD is a great place to start. If you decide to pass on the electric SUV, it could be much more expensive in the near future. Toyota will eventually only offer a percentage of the $7,500 federal electric vehicle tax credit after it reaches the sales milestone that the government has set. A few years into the future, there could be no tax incentive for Toyota’s electric SUV model.

Part of the electric vehicle experience is the cutting-edge tech featured in final trim level models. The XLE Limited AWD is the Toyota bZ4X’s full potential unleashed. Future buyers may have to purchase the bZ4X without any tax incentive. Learn how the bZ4X stacks up against the popular RAV4 in the next article below.
