Lexus Unveils RZ BEV, 71.4kWh Battery Capable of 450km Per Charge

Lexus has revealed details of the new “RZ”, the luxury brand’s first globally-available pure battery electric vehicle (BEV) model.

As Lexus’ first globally-available dedicated BEV model, the new RZ marks Lexus’ transition into a BEV-centered brand and embodies the Lexus vehicle design and driving experience brought on by advanced electrification technology.

For driving performance, the use of a BEV-specific platform, as well as a lightweight and highly rigid body, has greatly evolved the fundamental performance of the vehicle by achieving optimal weight distribution through ideal placement of the battery and motor. Additionally, the adoption of a new Steer-by-Wire control and system, along with the DIRECT4 all-wheel drive system using electrification technology, enables vehicle control that is faithful to the driver’s intention.

Lexus’ identifiable spindle grille is replaced by a BEV Spindle Body which focuses on aerodynamic efficiencies, optimised proportions, and style, versus serving the cooling and exhaust needs of an internal combustion engine. This styling evolution ushers in a new Lexus aesthetic and establishes a new design direction for BEV offerings. Within the spindle body is a minimalist, spacious interior focused on amplifying a sustainable mobility message and Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) through its application of mindfully-sourced materials.

Though simplistic, the space is luxurious thanks to its crafted touches and advanced technologies. In addition, the cabin features an available panoramic roof which visually opens the space, while passenger comfort is improved by a highly efficient heating system featuring a Lexus-first radiant heater.

We will be sure to update launch dates for the RZ in Singapore. If you are eager to shop for a Japanese-branded BEV, Toyota's first BEV due to arrive in mid-2022 should be on your shortlist, too

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
