Lexus To Unveil EV Concept At Tokyo Motor Show

The first electric vehicle of Lexus should be shown in concept form at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.

A couple of weeks ago, Motor1.com got wind of a new all-electric concept Lexus was bringing at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. The American publication learned this during a recent trip with Lexus. Other than that, they reported that the distinct spindle grille was changing, from what we’re used to seeing, on this concept.

We now know a little more about the concept that Lexus will unveil in Tokyo next October. Indeed, the English publication Autocar managed to have more details on the first electric car of the Japanese brand.

One of the first things we learn is that this Lexus will be a hatchback specifically for urban areas and will be tall and boxy. The Vice President of Lexus told Autocar “We feel that our future could resemble this design.”

Inside the concept that still has not been named there would be a pair of screens located on each side of the steering wheel.

Sato continued, “We expect four wheels operating independently will offer greater agility, stability and excitement.”

Autocar was also able to talk with Koichi Suga, General Manager of Lexus Design Division who spoke about the famous Lexus grille. As reported by Motor1.com, the grille will indeed be different. “Cooling still needs to happen,” said Suga. “The spindle grille is also a representation of personality, and it’s the face of the car, so it’s really a necessary part of the brand identity. But because it’s an EV, [customers] are also going to expect something that’s futuristic, something more non-traditional.”

Let’s remember that Toyota and Lexus have a plan to build 10 all-electric models by 2025. This Lexus concept will be the first piece of the puzzle for the Japanese luxury manufacturer.
