Late last year the president of Toyota Motor Corporation, Akio Toyoda, held a press briefing on the corporation’s battery EV (BEV) strategies where he shared his vision for the future mobility and announced that Lexus will expand its offering of BEVs which are said to provide safety, security, and convenience for all customers- no matter their needs.
What we are looking at here is a Lexus battery EV sports car which will be part of a full line-up of battery EVs Lexus will launch by 2030 under its Lexus Electrified brand vision. The sports car features bold proportions and low ride height required for a high-performance sports car, the new model symbolises the future of the Lexus brand while also reviving the spirit of the iconic Lexus LFA. Lexus claims their future sports car will sprint from 0-100 km/h in the low two-second range and the cruising distance will exceed 700 km, thanks to the possible use of solid-state batteries.
Through Lexus Electrified, the company says it aims to fully leverage the potential of electrification to increase the joy of driving for all its customers. The Japanese automaker adds it will also deliver the rewards of the Lexus Driving Signature, a unique driving experience founded on linear vehicle responses that are constantly faithful to the driver’s intentions, with seamless connection of deceleration, steering and acceleration at all times.
Future Lexus BEV range of cars comprise of: Lexus BEV Sport (with dynamic proportions and sleek lines, cultivated from the development of the LFA), Lexus RZ 450 e (the future is the Lexus RZ. The brand’s first fully electric vehicle), Sedan Carousel (the Lexus Electrified Sedan engineered to deliver the most refined drive yet).
