Lexus accelerates its future with ‘LF-Z Electrified’ world premiere

Lexus accelerates development of vehicles that meet diversifying needs and lifestyles of customers around the world.

SINCE the launch of the RX 400h — the world’s first luxury electrified model — in 2005, Lexus customers have purchased nearly two million electrified vehicles as of the end of 2020. Currently, Lexus offers nine models of hybrid electric vehicles(HEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) in approximately 90 countries and regions around the world.

Lexus has always pursued both performance and environmental friendliness. Through its “Lexus Electrified” vision that Lexus announced in 2019, Lexus aims to realize a fundamental leap in vehicle performance by employing electrification technology and to continue to provide its customers with the enjoyment and pleasure that cars have to offer.

Lexus held the world premiere of “LF-Z Electrified,” a conceptual BEV that incorporates driving performance, styling and technologies envisioned for realization by 2025. It features ideal dynamic balance achieved through the optimal placement of the battery and electric motors as well as a new four-wheel driving force control technology known as “Direct4” that generates a superior and highly flexible driving performance, setting the “LF-Z Electrified” apart from conventional vehicles.

Lexus plans to incorporate technologies and advanced infotainment functions that will further enrich customers’ mobility experience.

2025, Lexus plans to introduce 20 models, including more than 10 electrified models such as BEVs, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and HEVs in line with the needs of each country and region worldwide, offering the right products in the right place at the right time.
