The bZ4X SUV will start from £41,950 with four specification levels: Pure, Motion, Vision and a limited Premiere Edition. A new electric four-wheel drive system called X-mode has been introduced for the model and Toyota says it gives the bZ4X “class-leading off-road driving capability”.

Entry-level Pure models are front-wheel drive only and are equipped with 18in alloy wheels, an 8.0in touchscreen multimedia system and a 7.0in digital driver’s display as standard. Other basic features include a reversing camera, keyless entry and climate control with a remote operation function.

Drivers can choose front- or four-wheel drive on the next-step Motion specification, which starts from £45,750 and gains a rear spoiler and rear privacy glass. Inside, the model is fitted with heated front seats, ambient lighting and a wireless phone-charging tray.
