    "Toyota representatives often tell us that they think it makes more sense to use what limited lithium-ion battery supplies they have to make lots of hybrids rather than fewer BEVs. And honestly, if this is the best BEV it can build, I am inclined to agree with them. In many ways I was even less impressed with the RZ than the Vinfast VF8 we reviewed last week. Neither is a particularly good BEV, but at least Vinfast has the excuse of not having built any cars before."
    With the IR heater you don't need gloves for your, um, legs.:unsure:

    In Canada, the radiant heater is only available on the $84,000 Executive trim. So the most popular trims don’t have a glovebox and won’t benefit from the reason why there’s no glovebox.

    Weird because a radiant heater is standard on all bZ4Xes except the base L trim in Canada.
