Lexus have released updated images of their new electric sports car, which the company says signifies a brand new chapter for Lexus.


During a press conference in December it was announced that Lexus would expand their offering of Battery Electric Vehicles, providing safety, security and convenience for all customers, no matter their needs.


Lexus have now released updated images of their next generation battery EV sports car that will form part of a full line-up of battery EVs that Lexus are planning to launch by 2030 under their Lexus electrified brand vision.


Images reveal a sleek aerodynamic profile that is achingly beautiful mostly due to the sleek headlight and slim radiator opening. A large sloping rear window, large air ducts and a massive diffuser section dominate the rear view.


With Lexus electrified the company aims to fully leverage the potential of electrification to the advantage of their customers. The new concept will also include the Lexus Driving Signature, a unique driving experience based on linear responses that are constantly faithful to the driver’s intentions with seamless deceleration, steering and acceleration at all times.


The design of this new sports car incorporates bold proportions and the low ride height required for a high-performance sports car as it symbolises the future of the Lexus brand while at the same time reviving the spirit of the iconic Lexus LFA. The possible use of solid-state batteries will endow this vehicle with a range of over 700km and a 0-100km/h sprint time of less than two seconds.


Along with this development of battery EV vehicles, Lexus will evolve into a brand that offers a range of driving experiences that harnesses its unique performance capabilities and hones its craft of making products that are more personalised in their performance, quality and appeal.


Lexus BEV range

In the medium term the Lexus BEV range will consist of a Lexus BEV Sport with dynamic proportions and sleek lines inspired by the LFA. Additional models will include the Lexus RZ 450 e and the Sedan Carousel.
