Toyota has announced a series of consumer offers for the all-new bZ4X SUV, its first purpose-designed Battery electric vehicle (BEV). People who want to be among the first to own this desirable, capable and practical zero emission model can take advantage of a range of competitive contract hire and purchase arrangements
In addition, and true to Toyota’s mission to provide bZ4X customers with peace of mind – particularly those moving to a BEV for the first time – all vehicles will come with a complimentary package that covers home and external charging requirements and roadside assistance.
In a fast-evolving market for electric vehicles, Toyota is helping customers choose their vehicle with confidence with comprehensive leasing propositions, available through Kinto One.
For private customers, the bZ4X Motion can be leased for £611 per month, inclusive of VAT, with a Kinto One Personal Contract Hire (PCH) agreement. This is with a 36-month contract, and an initial rental payment of £3,662 (inc. VAT). PCH customers who place their order on or before 30 June 2022 will benefit from a special launch offer of three years’ free servicing for their vehicle.
People who prefer to own rather than lease their vehicle can take advantage of a Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) offer for the bZ4X Motion costing £669 per month (inc. VAT). Provided by Toyota Financial Services, this is based on 36-month contract with 4.9 per cent APR Representative and a £3,662 customer deposit. PCP customers have the option to purchase a three-year service plan for the vehicle for just £12 per month (inc. VAT).
For business customers, Kinto One Business Contract Hire (BCH) offers the bZ4X Motion for £509 plus VAT per month, over a 36-month contract with an initial rental payment of £3,052 plus VAT. Kinto One offers the option to upgrade to a fully maintained contract that additionally covers servicing, non-routine maintenance and tyre replacement.
These offers are available until 31 March 2022. Details and the full terms and conditions are available on Toyota’s customer website.
