- lexus has teased a new electric-car concept ahead of an event next week when the vehicle will be shown off in full. also next week, lexus will give details on what it calls a "brand transformation."
- lexus says that the concept will symbolize where the brand is headed and marks the beginning of the next generation of its vehicles.
- the teaser photo shows a vehicle with an suv-like stance but sedan proportions, including a long, gently sloping hood and windshield, along with an aggressive, vertical grille.
on march 30, lexus will be giving us a look at major changes it has planned for the coming years, and at the same event, it will also be revealing a new electric concept. the teaser image leaves a great deal to the imagination, but a lightly brightened version of the photo (above) reveals a long, sleek vehicle with an suv-like stance.
lexus said this concept symbolizes where the luxury brand is headed and also marks the beginning of the company's next generation of vehicles. although there have been scant hints as to what this next generation could look like, back in 2018 lexus showed off the lf-1 limitless concept, which we anticipate could reach the market as the 2022 lexus lq.
back in 2019, lexus showed off the lf-30, a fully electric concept, at the tokyo auto show. the lf-30 was the first sign that lexus was serious about building electric vehicles, and the automaker said that the concept is intended to look forward to 2030, when it anticipates most of its vehicles to be electrified.
the concept teased today shows a vehicle with a vertical grille which has a stature similar to the grille on the nissan z proto. the concept has the clearance of an suv or crossoverm but its sleek proportions, including a long hood and a gently sloping windshield, give it sedan-like looks. the roof slopes gently down to the rear of the car, giving it the appearance of an suv coupe.
for now, there aren’t many more details beyond a promo video which ends with the words "lexus electrified," suggesting that this next generation of vehicles could largely be electric. the event will be livestreamed on the toyota website at 6:00 a.m. et on march 30.
