When can you get a new Toyota bZ4X?
The 2023 Toyota bZ4X will be available in the spring of 2022. You can reserve your model online. If you want this vehicle, make haste. With the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage and other supply chain constraints, inventory may be limited.
Toyota also expects to hit the $7,500 US Federal tax credit limit for electric vehicles this summer. Once the limit is met, there will be a phase-out period that gradually decreases the amount of money to buyers.
The base model is slightly cheaper than the Ford Mustang Mach-E with a similar range. But higher trim levels of the Mach-E include more power and range. The Subaru Solterra is the more off-roading-oriented model to consider. Deciding on an electric SUV is getting more difficult.
