The Future of Lexus Electrified

Introducing the first-ever fully electric Lexus, the RZ 450e. Where sustainability meets sleek lines and power, as only Lexus could imagine.

Performance

THE FUTURE IS ALL-ELECTRIC

As the first globally available dedicated battery electric vehicle from Lexus, the new RZ marks the next step for the brand into a fully electrified future. The RZ 450e utilizes a dedicated battery electric platform to significantly evolve vehicle performance for an exhilarating drive. This Lexus-first platform offers high levels of stability and ride comfort by mounting the battery under the vehicle floor for a low centre of gravity and moment of inertia.

Design

A FORWARD-THINKING INTERIOR

The front cockpit’s design advances the human-centred philosophy of Lexus. Inspired by the tazuna reins favoured by traditional Japanese equestrians, the steering wheel features switches that are precisely synced with the available Head-Up Display, creating a space where drivers can control various functions such as navigation, audio, and drive mode select while concentrating on driving.

Technology

THE NEW SOUND OF LEXUS

Under the Lexus Electrified vision, Lexus engineers pursue the creation of expressive in-cabin sounds that convey the exhilaration of driving. The RZ 450e establishes a dialogue between car and driver by matching sound frequencies to the vehicle’s speed and sound levels during dynamic actions such as acceleration. The tone and acoustic transmission characteristics of the drivetrain’s sounds were tuned to ensure its pleasantness.
