Lexus begins its transformation to electric vehicles

RZ: The RZ electric compact crossover is powered by a dual-motor powertrain that combines two new electric axles developed by Toyota Group supplier Aisin Corp. of 230 kW, or 308 hp. It will arrive in US dealerships in the first half of 2023.

Second VEB: Lexus will bring a second electric vehicle to the United States in 2025, but it’s unclear whether it will be a three-row crossover, similar to the RX, or a more efficient sports sedan, similar to the IS. The Lexus electrified sedan concept shown in December could be the most logical bet, given that the RX is the brand’s best-selling and freshly redesigned with a hybrid powertrain, and a three-row crossover could undermine the new TX, while the IS is long in the tooth. But never bet against Lexus’ ability to make money, which means it’s likely to be the three-row crossover.

Third BEV: Third Lexus EV, slated for 2026, could be a stunning LFA-inspired sports sedan that boasts a 0-60 time in the low two-second range and be a halo vehicle. However, the brand says the sedan’s estimated 400+ mile battery range is based on “possible use of solid-state batteries” – and the technology remains a technical puzzle to solve.

GX: Expect the next three-row body-on-frame midsize SUV to be larger and more luxurious when redesigned on the GA-F luxury body-on-frame platform in 2024. It will also receive the system interactive infotainment system and a new driver. – assistive and safety technology.

Emission : Lexus plans taller, roomier three-row crossover above best-selling RX in second half of 2023 this will give it a rival to Infiniti’s QX60, Cadillac’s XT6 and BMW’s X7. The TX, which will be assembled in Indiana alongside the new Toyota Grand Highlander, will feature a Level 2 automated driver assistance feature called Lexus Teammate that “will enable hands-free driving under certain conditions,” according to the company. It will also have a remote parking system allowing the driver to park and park from outside the vehicle using a smartphone, and a digital key that turns the user’s smartphone in his key and allows him to share it digitally.

Reception : When it arrives this year, the fifth-generation redesign of the RX will repackage the nameplate to a new platform with new transmissions that Lexus says will make the midsize crossover more fun to drive. The redesign will incorporate the Lexus Interactive infotainment system as well as advanced driver assistance and technology upgrades.

NX: The compact crossover is due for a mid-cycle refresh in 2025 after being redesigned last year.
User experience: The compact crossover will receive a mid-cycle refresh in 2023, when it becomes hybrid-only. It will also receive the Lexus Interactive infotainment system as well as driver assistance and safety upgrades.

LS: The large sedan was refreshed this year with optional Lexus Teammate. Its next refresh won’t come until 2025, though the brand will upgrade its flagship sedan to the Lexus interactive infotainment system and new driver-assist and safety tech by then.

ES: The seventh generation of the midsize sedan went on sale in 2018 and will receive minor changes until a complete redesign in 2025, when it will upgrade to the Lexus Interactive infotainment system and new driver assistance technology. driving and safety.

IS: The IS was redesigned instead of redesigned in 2020, partly to save money in the declining compact car segment. The IS could be replaced in 2025 by the Lexus Electrified Sedan BEV instead of being refreshed in 2024.
