Had my first flat today. Was able to make it to the gas station to fill up the tire and then home. Now I scratching my head, does the Bz come with a tire pump ?
Sorry to hear that. Ours did come with a pump and repair kit as described in the manual. It's on the right hand side of the boot in a compartment above the floor. You have to remove the plastic trim (essentially you access behind the right brake light).Had my first flat today. Was able to make it to the gas station to fill up the tire and then home.

I've driven multiple cars without a spare for years now (a Sienna and a Mini Cooper). Both were spec'd with runflats. When I asked the same questions you did of my mechanic, he asked when the last time I had a flat was. With a nod to @Vern748, I realized that the only flat I've had in about 20 years was nail puncture that caused a slow leak and gave me time to get to the tire shop to repair it. Modern tires are way better constructed than they once were, but many of our perceptions are based on long ago. So I opted to keep a tire repair kit and can of foam in the cars instead of buying more expensive, worse performing, heavier runflats for either vehicle and have never had an issue (knock-on-wood; n = 1, or perhaps 2). And note that options for bZ4x may be especially limited, but they are quite limited for all vehicles compares to standard tires.This will be the first vehicle I've ever owned without a spare. I wonder which option (spare or run flats) might offer the better value and peace of mind for folks who don't like to risk being stranded...
