Electric Vehicle FAQs

We offer a wide range of vehicles, from self-charging hybrids to full electric vehicles. To ensure you make the right choice when it comes to choosing your next car, use our handy help me choose tool which will recommend the right power train for you according to your individual requirements.

 

We provide up to 10 years battery warranty with the Toyota bZ4X. Battery warranty is provided through an initial 8 years manufacturer warranty from the vehicle’s registration date. An additional 12 months warranty is included with every qualifying service at an authorised Toyota dealer, up to 10 years from the vehicle’s registration date.

Hybrids and battery electric vehicles have a key difference. A hybrid electric vehicle switches between petrol and electric power, and pure electric power, and the hybrid battery charges when braking or coasting – so there is no need to plug in. A battery electric vehicle does not have a tailpipe resulting in zero tailpipe emissions, and runs on battery power alone, meaning that you have to plug in the vehicle to charge it.

Charging an electric vehicle is easy and you can charge whilst you are at home, or at a growing number of locations when travelling.

There are three methods of charging for battery electric vehicles.

 

Rapid & Ultra Rapid (25kW to 100+kW)
The fastest way to charge your battery electric vehicle. There are over 9,000** public rapid and ultra rapid chargers across the UK.

 

Fast (7kW to 22kW)
Much faster than a normal plug, dedicated EV chargers can be installed at home or found in many public and workplace car parks.

 

Slow (3-6kW)
You can even charge your vehicle through a domestic 3-pin plug socket which can be convenient although this is a slower way to charge.

 

Use Zap Map to find public charging stations on your route.

 

Charging is easy, and when you buy a Toyota full battery electric vehicle, or plug-in hybrid, two cables will be included:

 

3 Pin Plug cable which is used for slow charging with a 3 pin plug at home.

 

32A Type A Mennekes cable which is used for fast charging at home with a dedicated EV charger or when you are using a fast public charger.

 

When you use a public rapid charger to charge your electric vehicle, the charger will have a cable fitted already, and you simply need to plug it into your vehicle.

Just like any other vehicle, the range of an EV varies between make and model. The maximum range of our electric vehicles is impressive, our All-New bZ4X for example has a range of up to 318 miles^^.

 

As with any vehicle, however it is powered, the range also depends on a number of factors such as weather and driving style.

As with all vehicles, electric vehicles can only drive a limited distance before they need refuelling. you will see clear indicators if your battery is running low, providing ample time for you to find somewhere to recharge.

 

Public EV chargers can be found in a growing number of places, including service stations, and public carparks.

 

To make charging whilst you are on the move even easier, we have introduced the Toyota Public Charging Network giving you a simple way to charge at thousands of charge points across the UK without having to set up alternative payment methods, or download multiple apps.

 

The charging time depends on how and where you are charging your EV.

 

At home, you can conveniently charge your vehicle using a dedicated EV charger, or even a domestic plug socket.

 

Rapid chargers are the fastest way to charge your vehicle when you are traveling, and these can be commonly found at service stations, with the ability to charge your car quickly and efficiently whilst you have a break from driving and grab a coffee. 

 

Yes absolutely! You can drive and charge your electric vehicle safely in the rain.

Company cars are taxed based on their CO2 emissions. For the 23/24 tax year, the BIK rate for fully electric cars is just 2%, meaning that choosing a bZ4X as your company car could mean you pay as little as £31 per month in company car tax^.

^Tax calculation based on 40% tax payer, 2% BIK for tax year 23/24, bZ4X Pure FWD priced at £46,055 excluding metallic paint.

 

Our All-Electric SUV, the Toyota bZ4X  is our first electric car. We also offer electric vans, the Proace City Electric and the Proace Electric

^Indicative charge time, for comparison purposes. Actual charging times may vary depending on various factors, including the selected vehicle (and battery option, if available), the age, type, condition and temperature of the charging unit and the battery, the starting charge, the power supply to and usage of the charger and the environmental conditions at the point of use. Charge times will be longer in colder weather and if battery temperature activates safeguarding technology. 150kW+ chargers are available in mainland Great Britain primarily on major arterial routes – see Zap Map for details. They are not yet available in Northern Ireland and availability is limited in Scotland, Wales and in rural areas.

^^318 mile range for the Pure FWD grade only. Electric range figures are the maximum official (WLTP) test values provided for comparison purposes, and can vary depending on factors such as selected grade and transmission, accessories fitted (post registration), driving style, weather conditions, speed, vehicle and battery age and vehicle load. Figures obtained after full battery charge. It is best to only compare electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect your real life driving results.
