    Charging the bZ4X

    There are three convenient ways to charge the bZ4X.

    Home wallbox charger

    A home wallbox is an excellent choice for recharging your bZ4X while it’s at home, such as overnight or when it’s parked up in your garage.

    Public rapid charging stations

    The fastest way to recharge your bZ4X is using a public DC rapid charging station. A typical 150 kW public charging station can charge your battery from 10% to 80% in approximately 30 minutes. Public charging stations are easily located using the ChargeNet map.

    Standard outlet charging

    Your bZ4X can be charged using a standard domestic outlet. Whilst convenient, it is the slowest mode of charging.

    What does the bZ4X name stand for?

    The bZ stands for Toyota’s newest future-focused badge in their product mix ‘beyond Zero’, whilst the 4 is the size indicator – in this case, a medium-large SUV similar to the likes of the RAV4.
