Toyota’s first pure electric vehicle bZ4X launch conference was urgently cancelled, blogger said “insider”

On June 17, Toyota’s first pure electric new car bZ4X, which was originally scheduled to be officially launched today, suddenly announced the cancellation of the conference, and the specific time is to be determined. A sudden change happened at the door. This unusual operation attracted everyone’s attention. The well-known car blogger @yuan Qicong consulted the leaders of the factory and got the answer that there has been uncertainty in the supply chain recently. The price release has been delayed, and a more consumer-friendly price is being developed.

However, this is obviously not in line with common sense. After all, the new bZ4X is of great strategic significance. It is Toyota’s pioneering work in turning to pure electrification. Besides, it has been warmed up for a long time, and there is no reason to do so.

So it used the relationship, passed multiple verifications, and obtained some “inside information”: Toyota found in a recent test that the bZ4X’s battery management system would fail in a severe cold environment, resulting in failure to charge. The news pointed out that this may be due to the design of the power supply temperature control mechanism, because the heating power is not enough to meet the operating temperature requirements of the battery in a cold environment, resulting in failure.

Yuan Qicong said that if the news is true, it is a design error and a low-level error. However, since the battery supplier of the Chinese version is different from that of the overseas version, it is temporarily unknown whether the defect is a special case of the Chinese version or an overall design error.

 

Until this flaw is resolved, Toyota’s China version of the bZ4X will not be available.

Earlier this year, we also reported that the overseas version of Toyota bZ4X is “afraid of cold”: the four-wheel-drive version of the bZ4X cannot be fast charged in an environment below 0 °C. If there is no DC fast charging, the vehicle may need nearly 10 hours to recharge the battery.

To this, Toyota responded: “If you want your electric vehicle to charge quickly, make sure it is charged in a suitable temperature environment.”

It is not clear whether the domestic version also has such a problem, but from the emergency cancellation of the launch conference, it can only be said that it is not optimistic.
