"That's right, (Toyota BZ4X) we will support the G20 Summit event," said Anton when confirmed about the presence of the Toyota BZ4X at the G20 Bali Summit.

Anton continued, until now it is planned that there will be around 143 Toyota BZ4X units that will be prepared by TAM as operational vehicles at the G20 Summit. "Toyota BZ4X there are 143 units," he added.

The presence of the Toyota BZ4X electric car in Indonesia at an important event like the G20 Summit is quite interesting. The reason is, until now TAM has not officially sold the zero pollution SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle), it could be that the momentum in the G20 is a start before it is actually released with an official tag to the public.

When asked about when this car will be officially sold for the Indonesian market, Anton did not want to talk much. But if you remember, on March 12, precisely at the JAW 2022 exhibition, Anton had already talked about his opportunity to enter and be sold in the country.

Yes, of course Indonesia is also studying (Toyota BZ4X), we will inform you later when it is clearer," he concluded at the time.

For information, the Toyota BZ4X is projected to launch first in the Land of the White Elephant, Thailand in the second half of 2022. This car without exhaust emissions has a 5-passenger seating configuration with a futuristic visual design.

Furthermore, this car is also said to use a special platform for Toyota's first electric car with e-TNGA. This construction is claimed to be able to achieve a capable driving performance with a low center of gravity and good strength.

Citing Toyota Global, the BZ4X electric car is presented in 2 wheel drive options, namely Front Wheel Drive (FWD) and All Wheel Drive (AWD). For wheel drive FWD combined with a single electric motor capable of spewing power of 201 horsepower and peak torque of 265 Nm.
