Why upgrade your Toyota bZ4X charger?

To improve the charge time of your Toyota BZ4X, an upgrade from a manufacturer level 1 (120 volt) to a level 2 (240 volt) charger is recommended. This charger offers the fastest EV charging speeds and ensures that you’re prepared for your next electric vehicle as well. Charging times are significantly improved, with a NEMA 14-50, 40-amp, 9.6 kWh charger fully charging the vehicle in approximately 10.5 hours. We offer a variety of level 2, 240-volt EV chargers and EV plug types, allowing Toyota BZ4X owners to benefit from the convenience of charging from home, cheaper overnight electricity rates (typically 40% in most U.S. states), and the cleaner peace of electric driving.

The Toyota BZ4X can be charged with a Type 1 J1772 charger connector at home, work, or a public charging point. The car’s software automatically detects the range of available charge and does not allow the battery to overcharge. The vehicle’s peak alternating current (AC) charge rate is 6.6kW/hour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I charge my Toyota BZ4X at a commercial charging station?

The Toyota BZ4X uses a J1772 Type 1 connector. Toyota EVs do not currently have an option to use a NACS charger connector.

Although compatible with Level 1 chargers, the 47-hour charge duration will limit your ability to fully charge the vehicle and subsequently restrict its usability.

A level 2 240-volt charger will allow owners to take advantage of favourable charging times, costs, and added convenience, which are limited by level 1 charging options. The ability to complete a charge at overnight lower-cost rates will allow EV owners to fully benefit from all factors of electric driving.
