Yes, you didn’t misread the title, not a Toyota Kijang Innova Zenix which will be a TAM surprise next month, but a modern electric car!
PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM) is not just the launch Toyota Kijang Innova Zenix course next month. But they also have a “secret weapon” for the country’s auto market, namely a true pure electric car.
Toyota bZ4X Launch November 2022?
We got this information from an influential and “loyal” internal Toyota who became our informant. “bZ4X will be launched on November 10, yes, only you (Cintamobil.com) know that,” said the holder of the Astra employee identification number.
He also added that the specifications of the Toyota electric car that will be transported (bZ4X) will be the same as those exhibited the other day at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2022. “Yes (same specifications),” he told us.
The Kijang Innova Zenix wasn’t the only TAM surprise this year
When asked about the price of the Toyota bZ4X, he said it hadn’t been decided. Around, “Next week is the new (price),” he said. Not satisfied with getting an answer, we tried to investigate other reputable whistleblowers. “At most Rp. 1 billion,” said another Toyota official.
The price of the Toyota bZ4X is believed not to be in contact with other electric car products of the Sunter band. Let’s take the example of the Lexus UX 300e which was asked to be the first electrified car marketed by the Toyota group in Indonesia.
Not just KINTO
Uniquely, Toyota is now expected to be more confident in selling electrified cars. Because it was previously believed that the KINTO system was one of the alternatives for people to try out Toyota’s electric car. KINTO is like a lease.
“KINTO is for those who want a new user experience, so they don’t have to worry about battery replacement costs or other maintenance costs. But there are also those who want cash / credit,” said our trusted source. he warned that his name must not be written.
Not only the KINTO system, it will also be sold for free with a Cash / Credit scheme
Unlike the Toyota bZ4X unit used in the G20, the color choices presented later on the sales unit will be more diverse. However, “It depends on the offer, because there are still problems with semiconductors,” he explained.
But don’t worry, the units entering Indonesia will be safe, not the units affected by the recall. “It has been solved (the problem), so it’s safe for those who enter Indonesia later, the G20 will also be used,” he was sure. Like this, is it true that the Toyota bZ4X will be TAM’s secret weapon next month in addition to the Toyota Kijang Innova Zenix? We just have to wait for the expiration date!
