Although most automakers are reluctant to accept the advent of electric vehicles, Lexus is still an early adopter by comparison. In fact, the RX 400h was one of the first luxury cars ever to adopt a hybrid powertrain when it debuted in 2005. Having said that, it pales in comparison with the brand’s latest concept.
It is called “LF-Z Electrified” and it coincides with an ambitious plan in which Lexus will add 20 electric models to its lineup by 2025. Therefore, whether it is hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or all-electric, it may have a sporty look similar to your previous vehicle. For example, the distinctive spindle grille has been replaced by a sturdy plastic part that hides a large number of sensors that provide three levels of driving autonomy. More importantly, it has a huge electrochromic roof, which can be changed from opaque to transparent at the touch of a button. Speaking of the interior, Lexus has experienced a day in the science fiction games. Imagine that the LF-Z Electrified has an advanced AI interface, digital key operation, and even a fork wheel with wire-controlled steering control. As far as performance is concerned, there is little information available other than the new DIRECT4 drive system, but you can learn more by clicking here.
