Lexus has recently released new images and animations of their upcoming electric supercar that will be launching by 2030 as part of the brand’s BEV line-up. The next-generation battery-electric sports car from Lexus was first revealed in December of 2021, but this is the first time the upcoming model has been displayed in such detail.
According to the company, the new model will be part of a full line-up of BEVs from Lexus that will be launched under the Lexus Electrified project sometime before 2030. The focus of the project will be increasing the driving pleasure and experience for Lexus customers through the use of electrification, as well as increasing the sustainability of the brand.
The brand also stated that the electric range of vehicles will stay true to the Lexus Driving Signature – a driving experience focused on vehicle responses closely connected to the driver’s intentions, ensuring a seamless connection between driving inputs and the response from the vehicle.
The new electric supercar from Lexus features a distinctly low ride height, suggesting great handling capabilities and proportions that might remind some petrolheads of the Lexus LFA. Lexus had also claimed that the model will be a successor to the LFA while staying true to the spirit of what the model represents.
According to Lexus, the new vehicle will be able to accelerate from 0-62mph in the low two-second range and will have a range of 430 miles (700km), beating the current range of the Tesla Model S long-range version by around 40 miles. Lexus stated that this is made possible due to the use of solid-state batteries.
Lexus stated that they will have a complete EV lineup covering all segments by 2030, and plans on ending the sales of internal combustion cars altogether by 2035, showing the brands serious commitment to electrification.
