In December 2021, Lexus announced its plans to release about 30 electric vehicles by the year 2030. The automobile brand started this journey by unveiling images of the next-generation BEV Sport, Sedan and SUV concepts on December 14. The new Sedan, Sport and SUV concepts are proposed to be part of a full line-up of BEVs Lexus recently unveiled under the collective vision known as “Lexus Electrified.”

And now Lexus has unveiled images of its first all-electric sports car. Unlike the previous revelations, Lexus is not a concept but a design that will indeed be built and sold by 2030.
Into the future
Through Lexus Electrified, the automobile company aims to explore the full potential of electrification to increase the joy of driving for all its customers. It will also deliver rewards of the Lexus Driving Signature, a unique driving experience founded on linear vehicle responses that are responsive to the driver’s needs, with a seamless connection to deceleration, steering and acceleration at all times.

With bold proportions and low ride height required for a high-performance sports car, the new model symbolises the future of the Lexus brand. It also attempts to revive “the spirit of the iconic Lexus LFA” through the new Sport model. While it does share close resemblance to the legendary Lexus LFA, it also shares similarities in terms of looks, with the current gen Toyota Supra, the new sport model to have hit the market.

In terms of battery power, Lexus claims an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in mere two seconds. This hypercar speed suggests an all-wheel drive sports car, with a range exceeding the 700 km mark credited to the possible use of solid-state batteries.

Through its development of pure electric vehicles, Lexus will evolve into a brand that offers a range of driving experiences, harnessing its unique performance development capabilities, and honing its craft of making products that are ever more personalised in their performance, quality and appeal.
While this fascinating new sports car will take to the markets in 2030, Lexus will release its first EV –the RZ Crossover, which is expected to make its debut in the coming weeks before going on sale by mid-2022.
