I have had a long history with Toyota’s Prius family. We first had a 2007 Prius. When the Prius C came out, I bought myself one and loved it. When the Prius prime came out I ordered one and six months later got a 2018 model. I love my Prius prime in electric mode, but do not like it in gas mode. This made me eager to buy Toyota’s first EV. Recently I learned that a local dealer had the first BX4X. Yesterday I went to see it. It is an absolute beast compared to the Prius’s I have owned. It is 4 inches wider than my Prius prime which would crowd my small garage. The high wall between the driver seat and the passenger seat feels confining compared to the openness of the Prius’s interior I am used to. I was never given a chance to drive the BZ4X, but I think it would be more like driving a tank than the Prius’s I am used to. My Prius prime was under $30,000. The BZ$X limited they had was $50,000. The dealer tells me they expect to get one BZ$X each year! I am going to look for a different EV.
