New images released of future Lexus Electric Sports Car

Acceleration from 0-100km/h will be in the low two-second range and the cruising distance will exceed 700km, thanks to the possible use of solid-state batteries.

The new sports model will be part of a full line-up of battery EVs Lexus will launch by 2030 under its Lexus Electrified brand vision.

With the 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.

Acceleration from 0-100km/h will be in the low two-second range and the cruising distance will exceed 700km, thanks to the possible use of solid-state batteries.

The Lexus BEV range of cars is comprised of the Lexus BEV Sport, the Lexus RZ and the Sedan Carousel.

“We will deliver a unique electrified Lexus that combines linear motor acceleration/deceleration, brake feeling and exhilarating handling to further pursue the joy of driving. In particular, we believe that the battery EV will become the future symbol of Lexus as a model that most clearly expresses the evolution of the automobile brought about by electrification,” said Lexus.
