While disappointing, a run of the test and including the below 0 buffer (which WLTP uses but not during the first test) shows the BZ4x not as bad as initially thought. Toyota also said they will work on the software in hopes to increase range.Range of the bZ4X has been disappointing in real world testing and I won't be surprised if that's the case above.
Basically real-world range is half of the advertised range. This report explains more:
"Danish magazine FDM tested two- and all-wheel drive versions of the electric Toyota SUV and both failed to hit their range targets by literally (dozens of) miles. The two-wheel drive bZ has an official WLTP range of 313 miles (504 km) but could only travel 153 miles (246 km) before needing a charge, meaning it delivered less than 49 percent of its claimed range. The all-wheel drive version fared even worse, throwing in the towel after just 134 miles (215 km) when Toyota’s WLTP figures say it should be good for 287 miles (461 km). That equates to less than 47 percent of the claimed range."
