Lexus Teases First Picture of Electric Vehicle Concept

The new Lexus electric vehicle concept to be revealed at the Tokyo Auto Show should inspire a future production model.


At the upcoming Tokyo Auto Show later this month, luxury brand Lexus will present a new electric vehicle concept and just gave us a glimpse of what to expect with a teaser image.

Although it seems that Lexus is trailing behind the competition regarding full electrification and autonomous driving, the company is actually working on many technologies at once.

In addition to hybrid powertrains Lexus has been offering luxury-vehicle shoppers for more than a decade now, we should see the brand tinker with plug-in hybrid, fully electric and even hydrogen fuel cell systems, including in-wheel electric motors and “e-axles.” Level 2 semi-autonomous driving should also make its way into Lexus products real soon.

As for the Lexus EV concept itself, we don’t know much about it just yet, but it should be a small car destined for urban mobility purposes. We can also expect an advanced infotainment system, at least two display screens for the driver and some form of self-driving capabilities.

If a production version of this Lexus electric vehicle concept gets green-lighted, it would be the brand’s first fully electrified car. And since almost every other brand is announcing such products of its own—if they’re not already on sale—it should only be a question of time before Lexus follows suit.

In fact, the company recently announced that it would sell 10 electrified vehicles by 2025, including at least one for every model line.
