Lexus Bringing New Electric Car to Tokyo Motor Show: Report

Expect a new electric Lexus soon

  • A “revolutionary” Lexus electric is coming to Tokyo

  • Lower-priced battery, longer range expected

Lexus is planning to reveal its next electric vehicle in October, according to a new report. The luxury EV, likely a sedan or hatch, is said to be the main event for the brand at the Japan Mobility Show which starts on October 26th.

The report comes from L’Automobile, which says that the streamlined EV is set to go into production in 2026. It would be the next model in a series of electric Toyota and Lexus vehicles that were announced, or at least teased, back in December of 2021.

Via Autocar, the new Lexus is said to “revolutionise” the modular structure of the vehicle body, drastically change the production method, and completely revamp the software platform.” Bold claims for an automaker that we’re used to trading on tradition and refinement over whole cloth changes. But moving toward an entirely electrified lineup in a little more than 10 years will do that.

The car will likely showcase a new design language meant to set Lexus gas and EVs apart. We’ve already seen a bit of that with the RZ, but the hints are that this one will take it even further.

L’Automobile suggests that the car will get a new type of battery pack with a range (WLTP) of around 800 km. More importantly, it suggests that production costs would be slashed. By 20 percent compared with the RZ. We’ll wait for the Tokyo show to see what the company’s engineers have been working on.
